Rugby…we all love it! Its success requires teamwork and a collaboration from all those involved…both on and off the field of play. It takes a well-run program with strong leadership and support to make it so. This involves more than just the student-athletes strapping on their boots. It takes the right support from the school, coaches, alumni, fans and rugby organizations to provide direction, funding, mentorship and more.
National Collegiate Rugby is here to provide the guidance and tools necessary for collegiate rugby success. NCR is an evolution of National Small College Rugby Organization. NSCRO is highly regarded in the rugby community for setting the standard of excellence for rugby growth and development. Since our beginnings in 2002 we have continually supported men’s and women’s college rugby.
Earlier this year USA Rugby requested NSCRO to provide key input in support of their Reorganization Task Force which we did. During our discussions with USAR they advised us to take control of our membership with our own registration platform and provide insurance coverage. We did so. NCR accepted more than 200 new member schools of all sizes into our family. Today we stand together with our nearly 15,000 student-athletes facing difficult and unexpected challenges during this pandemic. But we are rugby and we are built for challenges of all types.
Registration for the 2020-2021 season is open today at ncr.rugby. Join an organization committed solely to the growth of collegiate rugby in the United States.
NCR stands ready with many talented persons both in paid and volunteer roles to drive through this storm with innovative and collaborative services that will support the needs of our members. We will create a brighter day for college rugby.
No matter the weather…we are with you!
Together we can!
Yours in rugby,
