2016 Game Management Guidelines

USA Rugby Referees’ management has established guidelines to referreeing at all levels in USA Rugby. These guidelines enable players and referrees to have a clearer approach to the game and to be more consistent in Law application throughout the country. Learn more here.

Protective Equipment & Clothing Guidelines

The popularity of rugby is growing quickly at all ages. With that comes more cross-over from other sports and activities. Players and coaches are bringing new techniques and skills from these other sports, but with them come some protective gear that is not allowed in rugby. Read the Protective Equipment & Clothing Guidlines here to learn more.
