Our coach to player ratio is what helps to make playing for the Wapiti so much fun. Thank you to all of our dedicated coaches who have stepped up in the past. The requirements for coaching have been increased by USA Rugby for 2013, however.

To become a coach in 2013, you must complete the following steps:

  1. Become a member of USA Rugby (Wapiti had previously registered and paid on your behalf – we cannot now do so)
    1. Registration link: https://membership.usarugby.org/default.aspx (former USA Rugby members should find their CIPP information in the system).
    2. Submit your registration as “Coach” at either the “Rookie Rugby” level (minimum for all of our coaches) or “Youth Contact” level if you plan on attending a coaching certification (200 level) course.
    3. Pay the $65 registration fee.
