COACHING CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENT

MARFU Policy (applicable for the EPRU, PRU and VRU), effective January 1, 2004:

All clubs (men's & women's clubs, men's & women colleges, boys' & girls' high school teams) will be required to have as a coach an individual that has taken a USA Rugby Coach Development Program clinic (CDP); the only exception is Youth (defined as an Under-15 team). After January 2004, a club that has not had an individual attend aUSAR CDP would be denied a referee. In lieu of this 2004 requirement (for a new coach-only), the club must have their coach registered at the next MARFU sponsored clinic; if the coach fails to attend the clinic, referees will not be assigned and any referees already assigned will be re-allocated.
