Can I attend multiple player identification and combine sessions?

Yes, you can attend as many sessions as you wish. We are hosting several sessions throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Greater Ohio and Carolinas, as we believe there is a LOT of talent in these areas, and we want to provide a pathway for all players in our market area to play rugby at the highest level possible.

Is there a cutoff date for signing up for the sessions?

Yes, the cutoff date for signup is 1 week prior to EACH location’s session.

Is there a cost to participate?

Yes, each participant will be asked to contribute $25 to defray costs of venue and equipment.  Each player will be given a numbered pinny for participating.

 Are there required forms to be filled out prior to participating?

Yes. All individuals are REQUIRED to fill out the participant waiver form in order to participate in the sessions. Any athlete participating in the sessions who has had an injury or surgery within the past 12 months MUST have written medical clearance from their physician.

What should I bring to each session?

All sessions will be conducted outside, so please dress for the weather.  Bring: Athletic wear, athletic shoes/trainers, cleats, water bottle, and personal nutrition (protein shakes, protein bars, etc.). You will be responsible for your own food and hydration for the duration of the combine so please plan accordingly.

What time should I arrive at the combine?

Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start time.

What is the age requirement for the session?

All participants must be 18 years of age or older by the date of the session.

I am a local rugby club administrator.  Are there opportunities for our club to participate at these player combine sessions?

Yes.  We believe these upcoming combines will provide a great platform for all local rugby clubs to build their exposure and recruiting efforts.  Old Glory DC is looking to attract top talent to our professional club, but we’ve also made it a strategic goal to develop the game everywhere throughout our market, and the support of local clubs is critical.  Old Glory therefore welcomes all local clubs (i.e. college, club, select sides) to come out to any of the sessions.  If you are a club administrator and are interested in setting up a tent or table for recruiting efforts at any of the locations, please reach out to Whitney Stowell, OGDC Commercial Manager, at whitneystowell@dcmlr.com for more information.

 

If you have any additional questions in regards to the upcoming player combines, please feel free to reach out to Tim Brown, OGDC Operations Manager, timbrown@dcmlr.com

What do I get for placing a deposit?

Placing a deposit to purchase DCMLR Season Tickets secures for you a priority position for the selection of seats, on a “first come, first serve” basis – so the earlier you make your deposit, the higher a priority you will have for choosing seats.

How much is the deposit?

A DCMLR Season Ticket deposit is $20 per ticket.

When can I choose my specific DCMLR Season Ticket(s) location?

Everyone who places a DCMLR deposit will receive information regarding the sale and seat selection as it becomes available.

Can I get a refund of my deposit?

Yes, prior to your purchase of DCMLR Season Tickets your deposit is fully refundable and you may request a refund at any time.  If you obtain a refund you will lose your priority position to purchase DCMLR Season Tickets.

Where will the team be playing?

We haven’t yet determined the venue for our games.  Assume that we will secure a location that is accessible by car and Metro, most likely inside the D.C. Beltway.  Also assume that your deposit will be applicable to seats in a new, rugby-specific venue that we develop, or an existing venue that we lease, including a temporary venue if we begin play in 2019 before a permanent home can be constructed.

Who will coach the team and have you identified any players yet?

DC MLR’s approach to rugby operations is under development, and no coach has yet been hired, nor have any players been contracted.  You may assume for the purposes of your season ticket deposit that we intend to build a team reflecting the level of excellence that has been established throughout Major League Rugby during its first season.  Updates to this process will be provided to prospective season ticket-buyers as information becomes available.
