Using Facebook for Recruiting

In an effort to find as many ways as possible to get the word out about Rugby and the Stallions, we would like as many players and parents to Friend Coach Bergman.  His Facebook page is used only to post bits of news and information about Rugby in general and the Stallions in particular.  Then, when you see an interesting post from Coach Bergman, please Share it with your network of friends.  In this way, we can reach as many potential new Stallions family members as possible.  All current member families should be sure to Friend the Stallions Facebook page as well.  Thank you!

Remind Messaging Update

So far, our messaging system is working very well to get announcements out to our players and families.  That being said, our staff is still on the learning curve with this system.  Therefore, we have to ask that players and families DO NOT use this system in any attempt to communicate with the coaching staff.  At this time, calling or texting the coaches directly to their cell numbers is the preferred and most effective method.  All coaches cell  numbers are listed on the website under Get Connected.  Thank you for your patience.

New Stallions Messaging System

As most of you know, the Club has struggled with the efficiency of our messaging system.  As a result, we have decided to use a new system.  It is called Remind.  Some of you may already be familiar with this as it is very popular with schools and other youth sports organizations.  

In our efforts to get this implemented, we may need to invite you into the system via an email or text message.  As we move into this system, you will be hearing more from us with instructions.  In order to stay in the information loop with the Club, please follow up on these requests as soon as you are able as there will come a point in time where we cease using the original system. 

When enrolling, please do so with both an email address AND cell number, as Remind will allow us to send an email with an attachment, which was a severe limitation of the old system.

Thank you for your patience.

Stallions' Players' Core Values

To Stallions Players, from your Coaches, the key core values the club needs from you to succeed!

1. BE HERE (and on time!)





Please be informed that, starting on September 1, USA Rugby and Rugby Illinois (the two governing bodies to which our club is responsible) will be implementing a new player/coach registration system.  Based on our communications with oficials of Rugby Illinois, we feel confident in telling you that, while there will be some confusion at the outset, in the long term the administration of our club will be enhanced by this new system.

Payment - Unfortunately, players dues payment will now have to take place in two parts: one to Rugby Illinois and one to the Stallions.  The registration payment to Rugby Ilinois/USA Rugby is something that Stallions club officials had always taken care of out of your total dues payment.  We can no longer do that.  The Stallions will reduce SPRING player dues by the amount that is charged to you by Rugby Illinois, which is $46.50.  

Registration - ALL familes will now have to register their players with Rugby Illinois online.  FallBall paricipants need to start this right away in order to make all of our lives easier.  Forms will be stored online, eliminating the USA Rugby form that you have historically had to fill out.

The UPSIDE - Rugby Illinois and the Stallions will now be a part of the Sports Engine system of sports club administration.  This system specializes in the administration of youth sports organizations and will allow us to have access to their messaging system, which promises to be an improvement in our current system of communication in situations of emergencies and last minute change of schedules.

What You Need To Do Now:  Go to the Rugby Illinois website ( and register your player.  the link box is on their home page and they provide detailed instructions.  The sooner the better, especially for FallBall players.  Returning players will need their USA Rugby membership number.  Text Coach Bergman at 847-845-4982 and he will send it to you.  You can also call if you have any questions.

While this may seem a bit laborious at the outset, we are confident that our administration system will be stronger in the long run.

Thank you in advance for your patience!

Accident Insurance Assistance


As members of USA Rugby, all club members have access to assistance with out-of-pocket expenses after an injury occurring during a rugby match.  We have received mixed reviews on the ease of working through the process, but "every little bit helps"!!  To get the process started, you mut start with an occurrence report.  To do this, go to the USA Rugby website, click on Membership, then Insurance, then Accident Insurance, then Claims.  Stallions staff cannot take care of doing this paperwork for you, but we are able to supply you with membership numbers and match details.
