The Rugby tour is an integral part of the development and improvement of the game in the United States. A tour contributes to the abilities of individual players and can produce a cohesive club both on and off the pitch. It is a strong morale builder and offers an opportunity, unparalleled by any other sport, for travel and friendship. All the unique features which draw people to the game are magnified and compressed into a short period of time. All tours must be properly planned and carried out to ensure the full enjoyment of all those involved.
MARFU requires clubs to follow the IRB/USA Rugby process for overseas travel; please consult the USA Rugby web site for information regarding permission procedures.
