Eligibility: As of October 6, 2021, all area high school students of high character or who aspire to high character are currently eligible to play with Wando Rugby Football Club. You need not be a student at Wando High School to practice and play with our club.
Registering with Wando Rugby Football club consists of two parts.
1) Registering with USA Rugby / USA Youth & High School Rugby ($25 fee + processing)
2) Registering with Wando Rugby Football Club for a particular season of play (currently Fall 7s registration is open with a fee of $100 fee + processing)
More details about both registration steps below ...
1) USA Youth & High School Rugby is an affiliate of USA Rugby and it is the sanctioned governing body for all youth rugby in the United States and its Territories. This includes community and school based programs for players ages 5 – 18. You must register with USA Youth & High School Rugby every year that you play youth or high school rugby (on or about September 1). Registration expires every year on August 31. This registration fee covers the cost of insurance that those governing bodies make available to all US rugby players - including you. You will not have to pay the USA Youth & High School registration fee again for the 15s season.

2) Register for Wando Rugby Club 7s Season
Boy and Girls 7s practice began Thursday, 9/2/21 and continues every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-7pm at Cario Middle School field. In addition to practice, the season will consist of the following tournaments scheduled on these Saturdays in October:
Saturday, October 2nd (Clayton)
Saturday, October 16th (Charlotte)
Saturday, October 30th (Northeast Park-Gibsonville)
This 7s mini-season requires registration with Wando Rugby through the following link: https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/285130. You will need to have your completed forms in pdf format (see the forms in the "What you can be doing now" section below). The Wando Rugby 7s season registration fee of $100 + processing can be paid via credit card during the registration; there is an option to mail-in a check if that works better for you. (You will need to pay an additional fee later for the 15s season if you continue into the 15s season.)
Rugby is an inclusive sport and Wando Rugby strongly believes that no one should ever be turned away from the sport due to financial constraints. If you want to play, but are not able to pay the fee at this time, please complete this fee waiver request.
