How to CIPP

(AKA Register with USA Rugby)

CIPP Process via Rugby Xplorer (RX)

Registration in the Club and Individual Participation Program (CIPP) is USA Rugby Requirement. CIPPing costs $75.00 for a year, and is NOT included in the total cost of personal dues. Club officers can assist players in registering through this process.

Two things happen during this process: (1) you are registered as a player for Portland Rugby Club in the Pacific Northwest Geographical Union, and (2) you become a member of USA Rugby.

Legally, you must be CIPPed before you participate in any club competitions. Liability Insurance and Accident Insurance provided with your CIPP through USA Rugby. You are still recommended to have personal insurance, as these provided insurances are high-deductible.
