CIPP Policy Updated 6/12/12
The TRU is reaffirming its policy that all teams entering a TRU sanctioned event must have both the respective Club and all its Players actively CIPP registered with USA Rugby.
If you are part of a “social” team, you will now be required to transfer your current membership to a “Sevens Only Club” or traditional “Club” via the USA Rugby Membership portal.
All TRU sanctioned tournaments will be required to collect team rosters from all participating teams, verify corresponding proof of CIPP registration and validate photo ID of all players listed on the roster. No Teams and/or Clubs will be allowed to enter said tournament unless they are “actively” listed on USA CIPP database.

Front Row Waiver – Requirements for TRU Member Clubs
Recent legal cases in Wales and Scotland regarding the fielding of inexperienced front row players have resulted in both Unions and the Referees facing huge legal bills. As a result it is essential that the TRU and TRRA take all possible steps to avoid such litigation. To achieve that purpose the TRU IMMEDIATELY requires that all clubs highlight their front row players, starters and substitutes, on their latest CIPP club listing and the attached form has to be signed by the club coach, which, together with the CIPP listing, will be given to the referee prior to the start of all rugby games in Texas.
Failure to submit these documents will result in the game being delayed until such documents are produced. All respective club officials and coaches should be aware that they will assume liability for fielding any front row player who is not on the submitted list.
Front Row Waiver – Non-League Match
USA RUgby requires that clubs fully enforce and affirm that the eligibility rules have been adhered to. It is the expectation that clubs know and adhere to the rules, and that failure of the club, and/or LAU/TU, to adhere to the rules will result in severe penalties to the offenders – penalties so severe as to cause clubs, LAUs and TUs to take this seriously.
Consequently, effective immediately, at any non-league game [social, friendly and alumni] in Texas, the TRU requires that all clubs complete the attached form and submit to the referee prior to kick-off. TRRA has been instructed such that if a club fails to complete this form, then the referee will call off the game.
If any club official signs this form and is aware that some of her/his players are in breach of the requirements, then that official and the offending club will assume all liability for that game. TRRA has also been informed that they will assume liability for such a game, if they go ahead and officiate without these forms being completed and submitted to the referee before kick-off.
