Nov 10th, 2017

     The 18th Annual High School Girls Rugby National Invitational Championships will take place the weekend of May 19th -21st, 2017 at the Moose Rugby Grounds in Elkhart, Indiana. 

          This year’s event features school and club brackets at one location, with club teams competing on Friday-Saturday and single school teams competing on Saturday-Sunday.

     The Moose Rugby Grounds, home of the Penn HS boys and girls rugby programs, is one of the premier rugby-specific facilities in the United States, having hosted the Boys National Invitational Championships on multiple occasions as well as having over a decade of experience as the home of the Midwest Girls and Boys Championship and All-Star events, regularly hosting an average of 170 matches a year.  With three professionally maintained grass match fields and additional practice field space, the Moose regularly hosts tournaments with 40+ teams.

     As part of the invitational tournament process, teams are asked to complete an online registration.  Club team applications will be available Nov 25th.  School team applications are available now.  All teams are asked to use a hotel booking service to ensure their attendance.

     The 2016 National Invitational Tournaments saw ground-breaking expansion as twenty-four programs competed in division one and division two single school championship brackets as well as a ten-team club championship.  Organizers anticipate multiple brackets of both school and club competition this year.

     National Girls (School) Coaches Committee Chair John Klein commented that “the national girls’ tournament has never been stronger as more and more competitive high school girls teams continue to develop.” 

     Full details of the girls’ national tournament events are in the process of being planned.  Inquiries should be directed to members of the National Girls Single School or National Girls (Club) Coaches Committees until full event packets are published.
