2022 Fall 7s season is open!

Eligibility: ALL area high school students (girls and boys) of high character are currently eligible to play with Wando Rugby. You need not be a student at Wando High School to practice and play with our club and you need not have prior rugby experience. Our excellent coaches will teach you the game!

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.

Registering with Wando Rugby Football club consists of two parts (see numbered sections below):

1) RENEW OR REGISTER WITH USA RUGBY / USA YOUTH & HIGH SCHOOL RUGBY ($40 FEE + PROCESSING)

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 Rugby and 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.

USA Rugby / USA Youth & High School Registration instructions:

  • 2022 marks the first season that USA Rugby / USA Youth & High School is using the "Rugby Xplorer" software for registration.

  • Go to https://usa.rugby/

  • Watch the following 2 videos (near the bottom of the page): "USA Create a Profile" and "USA How To Register"

  • Armed with this new knowledge, use the "Register Now" button OR the menu option "Members" .. "Register/Login" to launch Rugby Xplorer.

  • When it comes time to search for a club, use "Wando Rugby" as your search.

  • Complete the player registration and make payment. ($40 fee + processing)

  • If you encounter technical issues when using Rugby Xplorer, please send your issue to registration@usayhsrugby.org

2) REGISTER WITH WANDO RUGBY FOR A PARTICULAR SEASON OF PLAY (CURRENTLY 2022 FALL 7S REGISTRATION IS OPEN WITH $150 FEE + PROCESSING)

7s practice begins Tuesday, 9/6/22 and continues every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-7pm at Cario Middle School field until 10/27/22. In November, the club transitions to the Winter 10s (or 15s) season. The Winter 10s/15s season will require its own registration fee payable at a later date.

For Fall 7s, we expect to play with North Carolina Youth Rugby Union (NCYRU) on the following days. Their current tournament schedule is:

  • 10/2/22 10am - 5pm, 3441 NE Park Dr. Gibsonville, NC (~ 5 hours from Charleston)

  • 10/15/22 10am-5pm, 3441 NE Park Dr. Gibsonville, NC (~ 5 hours from Charleston)

  • 10/29/22 10am-5pm, 7417 Poole Rd, Raleigh, NC (~ 4.5 hours from Charleston)

There may also be an opportunity during October to form teams that will compete in the Battle at the Beach touch rugby tournament on 10/22/22 on the Isle of Palms (likely for an additional per player fee).

While the club will look for opportunities to play closer to home, please keep the above travel requirements in mind. Regardless of your ability to make weekend tournaments, the Tuesday/Thursday training sessions offer a great (and fun) opportunity to get more rugby in before 15s season starts and make sure that you are fit and ready!

Use this link to register for Fall 7s: https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/336258. The registration fee of $150 + processing can be paid via credit card during the registration. (NOTE: If you plan on participating in practice during the 7s season but know that you are not able to fully commit to the season due to injury or other conflict, please complete the Part 1 (USA Rugby) registration process and email register@wandorugby.org to obtain a discount code to use for the Fall 7s registration fee.)
