Sask Rugby is the governing body for Rugby Union in the Province. As a contact team sport, insurance plays a significant role in how the sport is governed and operated. Rugby Canada, through the Provincial Unions, provides a National Insurance Program for all community rugby to access by becoming a member organization of their Provincial Rugby Union.
On this page, you will find all the information rugby organizations need to become a member, remain a member and how to utilize the benefits of that membership, which include an online registration and payment system, as well as how to find the information you need to run a successful rugby club or association.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Collect the Member IDs and full names of the athletes you want to add. For the positions you want to add guest players to change the Player Source to “Guest Players” and add their information.
When setting up your registrations add all the Membership Types you want to make available to members. When registering, members can select as many or as few that apply and will only be charged once for insurance, Sask Rugby dues, and club dues.
Anyone holding difference positions in different programs should register with Dual Memberships to those associations. When completing the Dual Membership, instruct the member to select their new role (coach, official, etc.) as their Package with the new club.
NOTE: If they complete a dual membership with the wrong package (e.g. a Junior player selected Senior player package) they will not be able to complete the registration and must start over.
The main 2 reasons and solutions are:
1) The member did not select the correct Package when completing their Dual Membership. Ensure they are able to register for the Package selected (i.e. Junior players cannot register as Senior players based on birth years). Get them to restart the process with the correct Package.
2) The member has not re-entered their Sportlomo account to activate it. Once the dual membership has been approved, they must log back in to Sportlomo to pay any club dues and activate their account (refer them to the Using Dual Memberships Guide). If you do not want to charge them for club dues, set up a discount code or separate package for these members.
