2018 Registration

We have rolling registration for the 2018 season.

Our rolling registration means you can start playing with us any time during the season. Our primary goal is to expose more people to the sport of rugby. Start with an email to our club letting us know you would like to play and then follow the other steps outlined below.

Check our calendar linked on our homepage for routinely updated schedule of events, including indoor and outdoor practices, as well as matches.

Rugby is Safer than Other Contact Sports

The risk of injury in rugby is relatively low compared to American sports – such as football, ice hockey, and lacrosse - a fact borne-out by numerous studies to ascertain the risk of sports injury in different activities.

Annual Dues Include

Dues will include match shorts and socks for first year players. All registered players will receive a training top. We intend to purchase other items for the club in 2018 as the budget permits. Match jerseys are provided, but owned by the club and not taken home by the athletes. Our club is an approved federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization administered and coached entirely by volunteers.

Registration Instructions

1) Email the club and let us know about your interest for playing.

2) Register with Rugby Illinois through their website. Elmhurst Rugby is a member of Rugby Illinois (RIL) and USA Rugby. Registration through the RIL website will also register you with USA Rugby, both of which are an annual requirement. This fee is separate from club dues and required to participate in any rugby union events in the USA or across the world.

3) Download, print and sign our participation and media waivers. Players under 18 years of age must have the waiver signed by their guardian.

4) Bring a check to one of our board members or coaching staff. Online payment will be available in the near future.
