Complete the Player Protection Package

As part of USA Rugby’s continuing efforts to place a stronger emphasis on player safety within the sport of rugby, the Player Protection Package was added to the core list of coaching requirements.

The Player Protection Package is a one-time requirement and consists of two free online courses revolving around player safety.

  • If you previously completed the PPP than you do not have to retake the requirement.

Completion of these courses is automatically reported to the USA Rugby Coach Development Department.
