2016 Girls High School Rugby Nationals

2016 Girls Single School National Invitational Championships

     The 17th Annual High School Girls Rugby National Invitational Championships take place the weekend of May 21st-22nd, 2016.  

     The first-ever single school tournament brackets will be held on the campus of Lindenwood University in St Charles, Missouri. 
     Organizers anticipate two to three brackets of competition.  Teams are asked to complete the single school championship online registration by March 1st.

     Club teams will be competing the same weekend at either Central Washington University or San Francisco Golden Gate’s Treasure Island.  The decision will be made by January 1st.  Interested teams should contact club rep Marin Pinnell.

     NGCC Chair John Klein explained; “With well over sixteen school teams expressing interest in competing at a central location, the opportunity is there for many more teams to experience national level team competition.  With many strong club teams located West, this also allows clubs to lead the way in expanding and bringing in more noteworthy club programs.”  Klein added, “While it is our hope that long term all brackets will take place at one location; this is a great opportunity to promote and develop the girls game in multiple ways.”

     While full details of the girls high school national tournament events are in the process of being planned, inquiries should be directed to members of the NGCC until full event packets are published.

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.
