The seeds for clubs competing in Women’s Divisions 1 and 2 and Men’s Divisions 1, 2, and 3 in the New England RFU, Empire GU, East Penn RFU, and Capital GU will be determined at the Atlantic Super Regional Rugby Festival. The top seeds in Women’s Division 3 and Men’s Division 4 will compete for the Atlantic Region Championship. Leadership from each Union collaborated on this effort and agreed on the following details of the event:
Host Union and dates:
- 2022 – Empire GU: 4/30-5/1/22 (Easter 4/17)
- 2023 – Capital GU: 4/29-30/23 (Easter 4/9)
- 2024 – East Penn: 4/28-29/24 (Easter 3/30)
- 2025 – New England: 4/26-27/25 (Easter 4/20)
Men’s and Women’s Division 1:
Men: MAC vs. ARP
Women: #1 vs. #4 – #2 vs. #3
Men’s and Women’s Division 2 and Division 3:
NERFU #1 vs. East Penn #1

The Unions are committed to delivering a professionally produced event with special consideration to player welfare, athletes’ and coaches’ work schedules, and expense to athletes and coaches. Union leadership will adjust if/when the Club Council changes pathways to a National Championship. As always, Union leadership is open to feedback and comments. Please share any feedback with your Union president.

January 26, 2022 release from the USAR Eligibility Committee (PDF)

2021-2022 Match Score and Roster Submissions
***** UPDATE – 09/28/2021 *****
Effective immediately (09/28/2021), we are back on CMS.
See the sidebar for the match reporting link to CMS.
- Each coordinator will be sending clubs their IDs and PWs.
- If you haven’t used CMS before, ask a senior club member or ask for assistance. However, it’s an easy system so try it.
- After entries are finished (roster and scoring breakdowns), you must “sign” your part of the form to acknowledge agreement with final score, etc.
- Rosters will be fed from Sportlomo. Those must be included with the submissions. if you haven’t used CMS before, you enter that in the system and not into a separate spreadsheet.
ALL scores submitted by noon on Tuesday 09/28/2021 are in the system. The standings are updated in real time within CMS. If you did not submit your previous scores (due every Monday night), you must do so in CMS. The Jotform system has been shut down for CMS.
Non-compliance with any of the above may lead to forfeits or other negative actions.
The following link is the current process to handle COVID-19 as it arises: https://bit.ly/3zpfqme
We will note that this is a “living” document and will be added to as needed.
Competitions Management System (CMS)
CMS is not ready for use by USAR’s Senior Club Council Competitions Committee due to issues with the import of Sportslomo player data. The projected date is mid-September.
We will announce via Facebook, Twitter, and this site once the system is open for use.
