TRUMAN STATE UNIVERSITY RUGBY
ALL PLAYERS MUST SUBMIT THESE TWO FORMS BEFORE THE FIRST MATCH
Truman Player Information Form (Complete the information and submit)
Player Medical Information Form (Print and complete the form, and return to Coach Sexton)
You must have personal medical insurance to participate in rugby. If you need a season-long policy, talk to Coach Sexton about the details for getting this coverage. Please be sure to provide the name of your insurance provider and the policy number on the medical and player information forms.
ALL PLAYERS MUST BE FULLY ENROLLED BEFORE PLAYING IN THEIR FIRST MATCH
Membership Dues – All players must be registered with USA Rugby and the Heart of America Rugby Union to participate in rugby. The USA Rugby annual membership registration cycle September 1 through August 31. Player registration for the 2013-2014 competitive year is $60 ($40 USA Rugby, $20 Heart of America). The team will ensure you are enrolled, so do not enroll yourself.
Club Dues for Fall 2013-2014 – Player dues are payable each semester. Your member club dues support club operations, pay referee fees, purchase of medical supplies, provide assistance for travel to away games, and hosting of visiting teams.
Returning players: $50 per semester
New players (first semester only): $25 Dues + $40 (shorts, socks, and Truman t-shirt) = $65
Playing kit – All players need black rugby shorts, solid black playing socks, and a team t-shirt. These will be distributed to all players before the first match. Total cost for shorts, socks, and t-shirt is $40. Must be paid for before receipt.

If you need any extra gear for the upcoming season, let coach know before the first game. We require payment for all gear upon delivery. All members are required to have matching team black shorts and socks and a Truman t-shirt for warm-up.
Truman Rugby T-shirts – All members are required to have a club t-shirt to wear before each match. Each player will receive a t-shirt with their playing kit (see above). Additional t-shirts are for sale, and can be purchased for family and friends, as available.
Old Truman jerseys – We have some “retired” Truman playing jerseys that are only available to players (and Alumni), on a first-come basis. These are great for practice.
Rugby boots – The price depends on the model selected (prices average $60-$70 per pair). I recommend that you either get soccer style shoes (backs) or go online and get rugby boots (see vendors links on the home page). Note, rugby-specific boots tend to be stronger and provide more support than soccer shoes – especially for forwards.
Shoulder pads and head gear – If players want these, we will get the best possible price available – or you can go online to order (see vendors links on the home page).
Truman Rugby gear bags – Special item.
Warm-ups – Special item.
