Rocky Mountain Rugby embraces rugby’s core values and is committed to protecting our beautiful diversity in the promotion of a sport which is truly a ‘game for all.’
While Rocky Mountain Rugby will not publicly comment on specific legal matters that occur outside the playing and administration of the game, we take seriously any matter that risks putting the game into disrepute. Any member who brings the game into disrepute by individual or collective action is subject to a disciplinary hearing.
Please note that all members that wish to report potential SafeSport violations may do so through USA Rugby’s SafeSport site, which is stickied to the front of Rocky Mountain Rugby’s website.
Rocky Mountain Rugby remains committed to World Rugby’s Core Values, which include:
Integrity: Integrity is central to the fabric of the game and is generated through honesty and fair play.
Passion: Rugby people have a passionate enthusiasm for the game. Rugby generates excitement, emotional attachment and a sense of belonging to the global rugby family.
Solidarity: Rugby provides a unifying spirit that leads to life-long friendships, camaraderie, teamwork and loyalty which transcends cultural, geographic, political and religious differences.
Discipline: Discipline is an integral part of the game both on and off the field and is reflected through adherence to the laws, the regulations and rugby’s core values.
Respect: Respect for team-mates, opponents, match officials and those involved in the game is paramount.
