Spring 2016

Reminder: Everyone should confirm that their CMS match schedules and the schedules within their local referee society match.

Event News: MAC Championship locations announced!

On May 7-8, Philadelphia will be hosting the Women’s event.

On May 14-15, Wilmington will once again host the Men’s event.

BOTH of these will take place at Alapocas Run State Park.

CIPP Deadline – April 1st. All players must be CIPP’d.

Any roster submitted for matches played after April 1st must include players that were CIPPd before the deadline.

While you can CIPP someone after April 1st, they are not allowed to play in a competitive match, as that will create a roster violation. Non-league matches are okay.

2015-2016 XVs Planning Underway

The MAC Competitions Committee is beginning to plan the schedules for the 2015-2016 season.

The men’s clubs are listed here. This reflects the promotion/relegation for 2015 results, announcement of new clubs or teams, and restructuring for D2 and D3 divisions. Please review this list. If you have questions, direct them to your league coordinator.

The women’s clubs are listed here. Coordinators will be reaching out based on the new structure. The committee met and agreed that this is the strongest competition we can put forward. Questions can be directed to your league coordinator.

Our MAC schedule of dates has us planned to release 2015-2016 schedules by the end of June. We are currently waiting for USA Rugby to finalize National Championship dates for 2016 and that may hold us up in the planning process. We would like to avoid the large gap between MAC Championship and the National playoffs that we experienced in 2015.
