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.
The D3 Men’s and Women’s Championship matches were rescheduled. Thanks to these clubs for their patience with our weather situation, and thanks to the new hosting clubs.
The Men’s D3 Championship was held at the Lancaster Roses Pitch at 1pm
Old Gaelic 36, South Jersey 28
MAC Representative: Bryan Dewease
The Women’s D3 Championship will be held at the White Horse pitch on 5/16 at 10am.
Phoenixville White Horse v Northeast Philadelphia Irish
MAC Representative: Jean Solecki
Due to inclement weather, the MAC Championship Finals were moved to Seven Pines, 514 Whiteside Drive, Sandston, VA.
Men’s D2 – 12:30pm
Rocky Gorge 34, Wilmington 22
Men’s D1 – 2:00pm

Update for Women’s Restructuring Survey:
Survey Monkey Link for providing input. Survey will be open until March 10th.
Information discussed on call is available for reference.
Forfeits – A reminder any forfeits should be marked at 28-0. The policy has been updated and a previous message was sent regarding this change.
The final adjudication of two recent appeals to the National Competitions Committee is as follows:
Division 1 Teams:
When teams look at the CMS standings for Men’s D1, you will see that USA Rugby has added an additional set of matches for Schuylkill River in order to give a -5 point penalty for playing a player that was not CIPP’d in four matches. The match results of those four matches remain in place.
Division 3 Central Teams:
Rocky Gorge has been given a forfeit for playing a player that was not CIPP’d during a match in the Fall.
If you have questions, please contact your coordinator.
Final 2014-2015 schedules
MAC teams were asked to consider promotion/relegation or declare divisions for the 2014-2015 competitive season. Now that most of our information about team movements has been received, the MAC Division List is provided to confirm with all teams that the information is correct.
Draft Schedules will be published by May 31. Schedules will be finalized by June 15. You need to provide bye dates or home/away considerations to your respective division coordinator not later than Friday May 23rd as previously requested in earlier emails. (Coordinators are listed on the spreadsheet.)
If your team is not receiving emails, please be sure to provide your GU your updated contact information.
