The Player Protection Package was instituted at the beginning of the 2013-14 membership cycle as part of USA Rugby's initiative to place a stronger emphasis on player safety within the coaching culture of the sport. The Player Protection Package is a one time requirement for every coach and consists of two free online courses (listed below). Every coach must complete both of these courses in order to attain active status and receive full member benefits such as coaching insurance. USAR will grant equivalency credit if you have completed a similar course from an accredited educational provider or school district.
1.NFHS "Concussion in Sports: What you Need to Know"
2. NFHS "Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment"
