Why are dues and CIPP necessary?   CIPP is a once a year expense that supports USA Rugby's & Rugby Illinois.  Both provide governance, structure, and RI supports the all state team (the Tornados) and state playoffs.  Dues are charged based on the season.  The dues support the Forest City Rugby Union (FCRU) youth programs.  The FCRU is a 501c3 not for profit group and all dues are tax deductable.  Dues to the FCRU provide for field rental & setup, uniforms, balls, game referees, trainers, and post game socials.   Since the fall season is festival based with only one home game, the dues in the fall are much lower.

The girls will begin Fall, 2017 practice on August 16th.  Practice will be Wednesday nights from 5:30 to 7:00.  We'll also have practice on Mondays in August but won't be practicing on Monday's once the season starts.  Boys don't have fall festival.  Fall festival will start in mid September and go into late October.  All games will be on Sunday.  We'll host a festival on October 1st at our home field.

The U19 teams compete in Rugby Illinois league play.  League play is in the spring with championships on Memorial Day weekend.  The girls play festival in the fall which is a developmental league.  All games are currently for high school aged players but middle school aged players may participate in non-contact practice.
