LAFAYETTE, Colo. - USA Rugby has announced the venues for the 2017 USA Rugby College XVs National Championships and 2017 USA Rugby College 7s National Championships.

Four National Champions will be crowned in 15s at Life University in Marietta, Ga., May 5-7 - Men's DIA and DIAA, and Women's DI Elite and Women's DII. USA Rugby has received commitments from the Men's DIAA fall champions (Notre Dame College), and the women's DII fall champions (Davenport) to play the winner of the spring playoffs for a full national champion. The Fall Women's DI champions, Air Force, will not play in the spring.

"We have been fortunate to partner with not only fantastic hosts and facilities for our major collegiate events, but rugby-mad communities that have shown support for our game time after time," USA Rugby College Director Rich Cortez told Chad Wise at USARugby.org. "Our student-athletes will be playing their best, and it only makes sense to have them play on the championship-caliber fields of these fine facilities."

In the College 7s Championships, Infinity Park in Glendale, Colo. will host the 40-team event May 19-21. The 7s championships will feature a 16-team Men's DI tournament, a 12-team Men's DII tournament, and a 12-team Women's tournament (no division designation).
