GRR: DI Women College
Return to play in college rugby looks to be a confused cluster after this week.
Colleges around the USA are coming up with creative and disparate plans to get students back to school, and for rugby programs that isn’t necessarily good news.
Following on from our recent op-ed from Rafael Zahralddin, it seems like National Collegiate Rugby (NCR) has a case that the Ted Stevens Act gives them free rein to pretty much do what they want.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still complications in bringing the college game together (if that, in the end, is what everyone wants … don’t we?).
We're trying to figure out where everyone will play.
As this writer said in a Facebook Live Q&A this week, for many college players, what their umbrella organization turns out to be won't change too much. Small college teams will go on as before. Men's D2 college teams will, with one or two exceptions, go on as before.
Santa Barbara, CA—The College Rugby Association of America (CRAA) has announced that it is committed to partnering with USA Rugby (USAR) to help rebuild the National Governing Body (NGB) as it emerges from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
When you’re looking at a new plan or new idea, what’s the first question that comes to mind? — “How much is this going to cost me?”
College rugby is changing significantly when it comes to who oversees what competitions, and with USA Rugby’s financial reorganization it’s reasonable to wonder if the old way of doing things, including how you pay to play rugby, will change too.
