The Basics

New Registration Process:

How you register to play Alexandria Rugby has changed.  Previously, you would sign up to play for your preferred season and pay Alexandria Rugby directly.  As part of that registration process Alexandria Rugby admins would also complete mandatory registrations with USA Rugby and Rugby Virginia, and pay those fees directly.  USA Rugby and Rugby VA fees are paid once per rugby year regardless of when you register and how many of the AR seasons your child participated in any given year.

USA Rugby and Rugby Virginia have signed on with Sportlomo to provide all registration, schedule, and game management needs.  Alexandria Rugby has decided to use Sportlomo as well.

It is our expectation that using Sportlomo will create a simplified and more transparent registration process.

What does this mean for you? 

In one process, you will now sign up for and register USA Rugby, Rugby Virginia, and Alexandria Rugby.  This registration covers all rugby activities in the USA Rugby year, which runs from September 1 to August 31.  

This also means Alexandria Rugby has changed our fee structure from paying individually for each season to pay one fee to cover the entire year.  We recognize this means a higher one time fee, but the annual membership fee does equate to what you paid for playing all seasons of rugby previously.  

Who Registers? 

All players and coaches must register through Sportlomo.

What program should I register for?

The following options will lay out your registration choices on the Sportlomo site and costs for the 2020-2021 rugby year.

Select the Rookie (Youth Tag – 1st-4th grade):  This is for those players who only wish to play tag rugby throughout the year.  Please note that there is an option for 3rd and 4th graders to play tackle in the spring, but tag in the fall and summer.  If you think you want to play tackle in the spring select the Youth Player Tackle option.

Annual cost: $200

Select the Youth Player Tackle (3rd grade through 8th grade tackle) option.  This program is for all players who wish to play tackle rugby.  3rd and 4th grade players who select this option also have the ability to play tag rugby when available during the fall and summer.  We are being advised by Rugby VA that tackle games may be available possibly as soon as late October or early November.

Annual Cost: $250

Coaches

Any parent or volunteer wishing to coach must register through this platform and complete the required training.  Alexandria Rugby will reimburse coaches for this registration expense.  Please send your registration receipt to treasurer@alexandriarugby.com

What is your refund policy, especially if the season is cancelled because of COVID? 

In the event that we have to cancel the season, Alexandria Rugby is committed to refunding you as much of your fees that we collected as possible. We will work with families on an individual basis, on request,  to process refunds in the event of a COVID related season cancellation.   

The are fees that are guaranteed non-refundable are the USA Rugby and Rugby Virginia fees, regardless of whether rugby activities are cancelled or shortened.
