NERFU Update on 2020 Fall College Competition

August 10, 2020

After gathering information from most of our member institutions we have concluded that operating this fall with a competitive 15s season is not possible this year, because of this, we will be canceling our scheduled season and playoffs for all three collegiate divisions. Practice and other team events are allowed in accordance with your state’s and institution’s guidelines for health and safety. If your club wishes to play matches, remember you will need to register the team and players with National College Rugby for the general liability and participant accident insurance.

We understand that this decision comes as a disappointment to all of our members but going forward we will keep the lines of communication with collegiate clubs open as we plan to hopefully return in the spring. We will be re-evaluating the Union dues for a spring season.

Please reach out to Dale Russell, Executive Director of Colleges, with further questions, comments, or concerns regarding this decision.
