In order to play in a match for Dallas Rugby, players must be CIPP’d with USA Rugby and current on Club dues (meaning you have paid dues in full or have enrolled in a payment plan).

“What is a CIPP?”

Dallas Rugby competes in the Red River Rugby Conference (“RRRC”), which is a geographic union of USA Rugby. Think of it like a conference within a bigger organization (ex: NFC or AFC in the NFL, or Western Conference and Eastern Conference within the NBA).

According to USA Rugby regulations, players must register to a club prior to representing the club in league/qualifying matches. The entire registration process is referred to as “CIPP”. Once a player is CIPP’d they are informing USA Rugby that they have registered with a certain club. Also, USA Rugby offers its (CIPP’d) members two forms of insurance: liability insurance and accident insurance, which can help those who may suffer injuries during a season.

“How do I get CIPP’d?”

In order to CIPP, follow these steps:

  1. Visit https://usarugby.sportlomo.com/

    • Senior Player“: select this option if you would like to pay your registration fee in full for the entire season. The cost for this is $85.00 for the season.
    • Senior Player (Training)“: select this option if you would just like to register so that you are covered for training purposes. When the season starts up and matches are allowed to be played, you will need to upgrade to the full, Senior Player option. The cost for this is $26.50.
  4. You will be asked to either set up a new account, or to login to your current Sportlomo account.

    • If you have never CIPP’d before, you should create a new account.
    • If you have CIPP’d before (with any club), use the email and password that you used in previous seasons when registering with USA Rugby.
      • Note: you will likely need to choose the “Forgot Password” option in order to get a new password, as Sportlomo is still new.
  5. Next enter the amount of players you want to register (hint: it’s going to be 1 player).
