FAQ

What is CIPP?

The Club Individualized Participation Program (CIPP) is USA Rugby’s third-party liability insurance coverage that protects you, the team, and the club from lawsuits that may arise from accidents that occur throughout the rugby year.

How often does a player need to CIPP?

Once per year.

If I CIPP in the fall am I covered for the spring?

Yes, no matter when CIPP, you will be covered until the beginning of the next fall season.

I can only play one game, do I need to CIPP?

Yes, this is a requirement of USA Rugby. Moreover, CIPPing provides protections to the player and team.

What happens if I play a game without CIPPing?

Players who are not CIPP’d cannot play on any game day. Any team playing a non-CIPP’d player will be forced to forfeit the match and face possible additional sanctions. More importantly, it opens you to significant legal risk.

Dues

The MATRIX competition is split into a Fall and Spring seasons. Dues are owed to the club for both the Fall and Spring seasons. To ensure you’re eligible on game day, please pay dues early in the season.

Returning Players:

Returning players are those who have participated in past seasons (either consecutively or not). Dues for returning players are $90 per season or $160 for both seasons if paid upfront.

Payment options are available.

New Players:

New players are allotted a discount during their first season. Players who joined in the fall are entitled to this discount in the Spring as well. New player dues are $70
