COVID Risk Mitigation
Please review our COVID-19 Mitigation Protocals. All parents and players must fulfill their responsibilities for mitigating the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
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 finalized by the league.
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.
