Although the plan is for the older age groups to play 15 per side, tackle rugby this spring, the final format of the season has not yet been determined by Rugby VA. Even if we do play tackle it's likely that the season will look different. We ask that all participants bear with us as the season unfolds and take any changes in stride. We already know that several of the tournaments we usually attend will not be held. As a result the spring '21 registration fee has been reduced to $105 for all ages. If we do attend any tournaments, we will likely collect a small tournament fee from all the participating players.
Vienna Rugby will follow the direction of our league, Rugby VA. Rugby VA will follow statewide guidance, such as instructions from the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia High School League. Vienna Rugby is further subject to requirements set by Fairfax County entities such as the Fairfax Department of Public Health and Fairfax County Public Schools. If the state or county prohibit tackle sports, we'll default to tag. If the season were to be cancelled, any refund would be based on how far along we are in the season.
Applying Credits to Registration
If you have a credit with VYI it will be applied to the Spring 2021 season. Credits from multiple children are pooled as a "family credit". If your family credit exceeds the registgration amount, you will not be given the option to pay at the end of the registration process. All you need to do is register and the logout. Our registration system does not automatically apply credits to new balances. VYI will manually apply your credit balance and we will notify you if you have any remaining balance due for the spring 2021 season. Everyone can see their VYI account balance by logging into the website and clicking on "My Account" in the top right corner.
Level 100 serves as an introduction to the game of Rugby and the basics of the coaching process. Level 100 certification is needed to coach TAG rugby. Level 100 certification is a pre-requisite for level 200 certification.
Please keep in mind that we do not always have the opportunity to send emails prior to a weather event. If we anticipate possible issues we will post something on the website by 5PM. If you do not see anything on the website by 5PM or do not receive a notification of a canceled or modified practice schedule, please plan to attend practice.
