This applies to Men (D1, D2, D3, D4) and Women (D1, D2, D3).
By 9/4/14 (if not already), everyone’s club officers will have information about the new USAR Competition Management system for 2014-2015. Your rosters must be submitted online prior to your league matches (so-called ‘friendlies’ are not included). USAR guidelines are being distributed along with club IDs and PWs; this has information about due dates and times. This is required by USAR.
The bottomline: make sure your club does this and don’t play around with this.
Congratulations to Rocky Gorge, the 2014 USAR D2 Club Men National Champions!
Events were open for bid through February 1st. The 7s group (Mike Bertoni (Bertoni8@yahoo.com), Dre Khoury (firstname.lastname@example.org), Darin Dardin (email@example.com), and Pat Boyle (firstname.lastname@example.org)) has announced the following
2014 MAC 7’s Qualifiers will be held on the following dates:
June 14 – NOVA/Ruggerama
June 28- Wilmington
July 12 – Rocky Gorge
July 26- Rocky Gorge (MAC finals)
As the fall portion of the 2013-2014 Competitive cycle is now complete, please make sure all score reports and rosters are complete not later than December 7th. This includes setting the match status to a “Finished” status. If you are still having issues with any aspects of this system, please inform your Representative and Margy Thomas to escalate to USA Rugby.
In an effort to give feedback to USA Rugby about the Competition Management System used for score reporting, please take a look at the survey at the link below:
The competitive region is looking for feedback on the system and would like to receive your input based on your experience using the system this season. The survey should only take about 10 minutes so please complete it as soon as possible. From my understanding, there is no limitation on the number of people who can complete the survey for each team but please limit to the one or two people per club who used the system the most this fall so we can get meaningful data from experienced users.
The survey will close on Friday November 29th.
General procedures across divisions (and genders) are posted under… Procedures. Please follow, as always.
Two remaining phone calls and webinars will be hosted in order to review the new reporting system and how to use it. Guidelines for use will also be reviewed on the call. There are 25 available seats on each call. Please download any necessary software you need in order to join the phone call and view the online screen sharing session.

A small, but significant bug was found in the USAR reporting system (reported by Wilmington). If a penalty try is awarded and is one of 4 trys, a bonus point is not given.
We have reported this to USAR and will update this notice once it is resolved.
Reminder: you must now report your results at http://usarugbystats.com/ (Men’s Clubs received their access codes last week; Women’s Clubs got them earlier this week). You must also enter your roster for the match.
Check that the opposing team entered the correct score, if your club did not do so.
