When you register with Rugby Ohio there are a variety of different fees included in your registration. Under the new Sportlomo registration platform, you will see each of these fees outlined by how much goes to each entity. These funds go directly to the various groups rather than to Rugby Ohio and then dispersed accordingly. The fees included in your registration are outlined in the following tables.
Recently, USA Rugby provided a list of member benefits. Those can be seen here. USA Youth & High School Rugby provides accident insurance and development fees specifically targeted for youth. USA Y&HS is a new entity that was formed to specifically focus on the youth and high school game across the country. You can see their organizational launch press release here.
Rugby Ohio fees include, but are not limited to: referree and trainer costs (50% of RO expenses), organization expenses, facility/field rentals, coach and referee development, and paid collegiate interships. Club fees/dues are set by each club and will vary. Some clubs may not charge dues through this process and those that do may include the cost of kit, field rentals, indoor training space, etc..
