Welcome to Membership Week

Welcome to Membership Week! What exactly does that mean you ask? It is a week to look back at the 2017-18 competitive cycle that comes to an end on Friday, August 31, and remind the USA Rugby community that your membership will expire all are encouraged to renew their membership or sign up for the first time!

LOOKING BACK

Looking back on the season that was, rugby fans remain encouraged after the success of a United States hosted Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco. The Men's Eagles secured a second consecutive America's Rugby Championship, while both the Men's and Women's Sevens made waves on the World Rugby Sevens Series through a victory in Las Vegas and two podium appearances respectively. The Women's Eagles grouped in Chula Vista for camp under new Head Coach Rob Cain as they look forward to an epic rematch with the New Zealand Black Ferns in Chicago for The Rugby Weekend.

Additionally, community rugby remains on the rise with National Championships handed out on the club and college levels while an increased number of High Schools are adding rugby as a school recognized sport. All of us at USA Rugby want to say congratulations to each, and every athlete, coach, referee, and admin for the hard work and dedication put into their championship season.

LOOKING FORWARD

Annual Members of USA Rugby are a part of a larger rugby community that genuinely demonstrates just how much rugby is growing in America. This year during Membership Week, USA Rugby is announcing the inclusion of the USA Rugby Supporter program. We understand playing, coaching, refereeing and working with the community is a dedication year in and year out. With the USA Rugby Supporter program, you can cheer from the sidelines and retain your membership status including the member benefits. Additionally, when you register for the program, all funds are allocated directly to the USA Rugby national teams, from senior level to the High School All-Americans.

Individuals who have not been members in the past can take their love for the game to the next level with a USA Rugby Membership. Members have access to significant discounts on products and services as well as access to insurance options to assure peace of mind and insurance coverage while playing at a USA Rugby sanctioned event.

A full list of benefits is found on the MEMBERSHIPS BENEFITS page of the USA Rugby website.
