USA RUGBY CiPP PROCESS FOR NEW MEMBERS OF THE CHICAGO DRAGONS

CiPP, or CIPP, or occasionally sip, is your registration, as a Chicago Dragon, with USA Rugby. This makes you an eligible competitive rugby player, and gets you extra insurance if you are injured during an official event. This is 100% mandatory, full stop, non-negotiable. You MUST be registered, or you WILL NOT PLAY. This is very serious, as an improperly registered player can get the club in a whole mess of trouble.

Note that this is a separate fee from paying your dues, but it covers an entire year from the time you are registered.
