BC Rugby Membership & Benefits

BECOME A MEMBER

BC Rugby Membership is available to any resident of BC. Register as a player, coach, official, volunteer, medical staff, or supporter to become a Member. Through Membership, we continue to grow, develop, and manage rugby by offering programs for all ages and skill levels (recreational to high performance), educational opportunities and access to exclusive benefits and services.

MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION

BC Rugby offers a place for everyone to get involved. Whether you play, coach, or just love the Club atmosphere on game days, there are endless ways for you to join the game. To get started, register with BC Rugby or with one of our Member Clubs.

  1. Register with BC Rugby: select BC Rugby – No Club Affiliation
  2. Register with a Member Club


Please note that during the 
Return to Rugby phase, only sanctioned clubs can register players. To see a list of currently sanctioned clubs, click here.

If you participated in the previous season as a player, coach, official, or volunteer, log in to your SportLomo account to renew your Membership for the new season. If you are unsure whether you have an account, contact the BC Rugby Office to avoid duplicate profiles in the system. To find out when registration opens for the new season, contact your Club or the BC Rugby Office.

Management who work directly with players are required to complete the Rugby Ready course in addition to being registered BC Rugby Members. This applies to coaches, trainers, medical staff and managers.


Board members
 and volunteers (in defined roles) have no individual registration dues. Board and Officer Insurance is done as an annual fee to the clubs (this will be waived if the club provides proof of its own Director and Officer’s insurance or if ALL Directors and Officers are current members in other categories. 

INSURANCE PROGRAMS

Once you are a registered member, you become insured and covered under Rugby Canada’s insurance policy for the season. This includes Sports Liability Insurance, Sport Accident Insurance, Provincial Excess Medical Coverage, and Travel Coverage while on sanctioned Tours.

Under the insurance program, the activities that are covered include sanctioned or authorized activities, such as games, practices, tournaments, camps, events, and tours. Tours require a separate sanctioning application to access the Travel Coverage in the insurance program.

MEMBER FAQ

Use the dropdown menu below for information on Refund Requests, Transfers and Upgrades:

To request a refund for your registration fees, log in to your SportLomo account to initiate the request.

Automatic Refunds: If the refund is requested within 14 days of your registration date and you have not participated in any Rugby activity (game or practice), the member qualifies for an automatic refund and the money will go back directly to the credit card used to purchase the Membership.

Manual Refunds: If the refund is requested after 14 days of your registration date and you have not participated in any Rugby activity (game or practice), the refund will be manually processed by Rugby Canada, BC Rugby and the Club separately and make separate payments to the Member.

If you are moving between Clubs, you must get a transfer release from your old Club. Log in to your SportLomo account to initiate the transfer request. The transfer process can take several days for approval between Clubs and Provincial Unions so please allow at least 5-7 days’ notice of transfer to ensure you are properly registered with your new club.

If you are already a registered Member and you wish to add another role to your Membership (i.e. official, coach, etc.), log in to your SportLomo account and you can upgrade your Membership to include multiple roles without having to create a new account.
