2022 Atlantic Super Regional

The Senior Club Council, club rugby’s voice to USA Rugby, has enacted several changes to the pathways teams navigate to become eligible for the USA Rugby Club 15s National Championship. 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)

Format:

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
Empire #1 vs. Capital #1

Men’s Division 4:
NERFU/Empire Champion vs. MAC Champion

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.

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.

Spring 2021

In areas where play is allowed, clubs may schedule their own matches (“friendlies”) but there will be no league matches or schedules. MAC 15s scheduling work is planned to resume in mid-May for the Fall. The MAC 7s Committee will be looking at the options as we approach summer.

Further update on Fall 2020

About a month or two ago, we indicated that if we couldn’t play by 09/15/2020 the MAC season would be officially postponed…and it is. This isn’t a surprise to anyone, though.

As soon as we can begin a return to full contact practice and play WITH approval from Capital and the EPRU, the MAC reps will re-configure the schedules for – we hope – Spring 2021.

[Most of the leagues are specific to one GU, with the exception of D1M and D1W. However, there are also inter-state and intra-state issues that must considered before Capital and the EPRU can allow play.]
