How to CIPP

Register with our club through USA Rugby

Registration in the Club and Individual Participation Program (CIPP) is USA Rugby Requirement. CIPPing costs ~$80.00 for a year, and is NOT included in the total cost of personal dues.

Two things happen during this process:

  1. You are registered as a player for Portland Rugby Club in the Pacific Northwest Geographical Union (PNRFU)
  2. You become a member of USA Rugby

Legally, you must be CIPPed before you participate in any club competitions. Liability Insurance and Accident Insurance provided with your CIPP through USA Rugby. You are still recommended to have personal insurance, as these provided insurances still come with a deductible of $500 or more.

Steps for registering on the Rugby Xplorer (RX) app can be found below, but club officers can assist players in registering through this process if needed!

Need Insurance?

If you live in Oregon, you can sign up for Free Health Coverage provided by the state. You can have this insurance even if you currently have a job, as eligibility is based on current monthly income, household size, and other circumstances. Learn more and sign up for the Oregon Health Plan on the state government website!
