2016 USA Rugby Women’s Club Championships

USA Rugby National Championship SeriesThe 2016 USA Rugby Emirates Airline Club National Playoffs begin May 21-22. The Western National Quarterfinal and Semifinals will be held in Tucson, Ariz., at the Kino Sports Complex. The Eastern National Quarterfinal and Semifinals will be held at Founders Field, in Pittsburgh, PA.

Once the semifinalists are determined, the USA Rugby National Championship Finals will once again be hosted by the City of Glendale at Infinity Park Stadium in Glendale, Colo. The Women’s Division I championships will be held Saturday, June 4, with the Women’s Division II finals taking place Sunday, June 5.

Last year’s DI Champion, the Seattle Saracens returns and will face the always physical Santa Monica Dolphins on day one. The DII Champion, Wisconsin also returns and will see Charlotte first.

Note that USA Rugby has heard from the clubs that playoffs should be rotated to help offset travel costs. As a result, the first three years have been determined below, though stronger bids are always capable of overcoming designated geographic preference.
