2018 Girls High School Rugby Nationals

2018 Girls High School Rugby                                              National Invitational Championships

Nov 12th, 2017

     The 19th Annual High School Girls Rugby National Invitational Championships take place the weekend of May 18th- 20th, 2018 at the Middle Tennessee State University Sports Complex in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

     Located a short drive southeast of Nashville, Tennessee, MTSU is a familiar venue for championship rugby events including the Tennessee High School State Championships both 7s and 15s (boys and girls), the South 15’s Collegiate Championships, numerous large 7s events, and Atavus camps.

  Hosted by the MTSU Rugby Alumni Association and MTSU Rugby, The MTSU Sports Complex features three Bermuda grass pitches and a fourth warmup field.

     Tournament host Jody Hensley noted, “We are excited and look forward to hosting an event of this magnitude. We hope to provide the best tournament ever for these young athletes.”.”

     Club teams compete Friday and Saturday May 18th-19th and Single School teams will compete Saturday and Sunday May 19th-20th.  Organizers are once again planning multiple brackets of competition; with two divisions of school competition and two divisions of club teams.  Developing programs are encouraged to compete against teams they might not normally ever compete against. 

     “We are excited to bring girls nationals to the South, for the first time in the event’s history,” reflected John Klein, NGCC single school chair.  “It sounds like we have the potential to include several girls teams from the south, new competitors too. Involving new programs each year is one of our goals and reflects just how much the girls game continues to grow” Klein added.

    Teams apply to participate.  Event packets will be available in the near future and interested teams are asked to contact the club or school committee representatives below for applications and eligibility information.  Venue questions can be sent directly to the event host.
