Girls Midwest Rugby Championships Archive


The Midwest High School Girls Rugby Championships

      Back in the late 1990’s several girls high school rugby teams began cropping up in isolated pockets all over the Midwest.  As they continued to grow, they needed teams to play.   The Midwest High School Girls Championships originated in 1999, after several territories including Indiana, Minnesota, and Wisconsin sprouted girls programs.  The tournament was created as teams sought more competition than the few teams in their respective areas could provide.   

     The Midwest has a long and proud tradition of supporting girls high school rugby.  From very early on, the Midwest Referees Society went out of their way to support this youth event, as did several unions who took on organizing and hosting the event.
