POLICIES

CODE OF CONDUCT

The EPRU and the University of Scranton fully support the USA Rugby Collegiate Committee’s statement regarding conduct and expects ALL collegiate teams to abide by this statement:

“Collegiate rugby players and COACH'S represent their colleges and are ambassadors of collegiate rugby in the United States. As such, collegiate rugby players and COACH'S are expected to behave with dignity both on and off the field. Collegiate rugby players and COACH'S should not tolerate rude or anti-social behavior of any sort which would reflect negatively on the image of USA Rugby or the student athlete’s college/university, and the image of collegiate rugby as a serious and disciplined athletic endeavor. Any breach of this Code of Conduct will be forwarded to the appropriate disciplinary committee for action.”
