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)
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.

We will note that this is a “living” document and will be added to as needed.
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.
Effective August 1 for 15s and August 16 for 7s. S
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.
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.]
This is ONLY applicable for MAC play and NOT for friendlies (regional 15s, 7s, Touch):
- Any play/practice (MAC or friendly) is pending GU sanctioning a return to play
- MAC league play is postponed until further notice
- No league matches in September
- MAC, Capital, and EPRU will reevaluate on September 15 for October play
- Registration is not required until practices begin
- If play is opened up, we will have a three-week buffer for practices before games begin
- If a decision cannot be made on September 15, the Fall Season will be cancelled
- Conferences MAY cancel now and postpone until March
