Handbook & By-Laws

NERFU Handbook

The New England Rugby Football Union has developed a set of policies and procedures to manage the organization and conduct of rugby in New England.

The NERFU Handbook is the ‘document of record' for those policies and procedures.

The Handbook is updated on an ‘as required' basis. An email will be sent to the President of all registered clubs in New England following each update so please ensure your club contact details are current.

If you have questions about any of the policies or procedures in the Handbook please contact your Division Director.

The By-Laws outline NERFU's objectives, how it is organized and how it conducts its business.
