Rugby Xplorer '24 Season Checklist

Updated: Feb 9


The Rugby Xplorer (RX) registration and competition management system is now open for the upcoming RugbyNY 2024 season.

New this season is the ability to remove any registration type that your club does not use from your organization's list of available payment settings. This should help both club admins and members more easily navigate RX.

If you would like any of the payment settings shown on your club admin page removed, please contact us at

Please review our Rugby Xplorer '24 Season Checklist to make sure your club is ready for the new season:

  • Make sure your club is listed in Rugby Xplorer. If your club is new to RX, please contact RugbyNY Executive Director Rob Sliwinski at to get started.

  • Designate at least one person as club administrator. Admins do not need to be a player or a coach, they only need to have a Rugby Xplorer account.

    • If your club admin is missing or you need to add one, email us at requesting admin privileges. Be sure to specify which club you are requesting access for and be sure to use the exact email address from your RX profile.

  • Club administrators please verify your club's contact information. This can be done by logging in to your RX account and selecting "Admin Portal" from the left hand menu.

  • If you are a varsity high school program, you must complete a USA Youth & HS Rugby Varsity High School application each year. More information about the Varsity program is below.

  • Edit/Add your club's registration types and payment settings.

  • Add your list of teams for your club that will be playing this year. this should be done for all your teams, including Rookie, Flag, and Youth, as well as Middle School and High Sschool.

  • Assign at least one person to be a team admin for each team created. Club administrators can assign team admins. Like their club counterparts, team admins do not need to be a player or a coach.

  • Players register. There is no longer a bulk registration option.

  • Assign players to teams. This can be done by either club or team administrators.

Carryover from last season

Club administrators, payment settings and registration types from last year have all been carried over to the '23-'24 season in RX.

NOTE: We have been hearing of some cases where administrators or payment settings from last season have not carried over to. If this is the case for your club, please contact Registration Coordinator Fred Bressette at

Teams, team admins and squad lists from last year have all been archived and will need to be created new for this season.
