Southeastern Conference moves 15s Competition to Spring

August 03, 2020 – The Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference (SCRC) announced today that it has moved the 15s conference competition to the spring semester as a result of travel restrictions and other insurmountable obstacles related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This move affects both Division 1 and Division 2 teams of the SCRC.

As student athletes return to campus this fall, they will be met with a variety of limitations associated with social distancing and restrictions related to travel and hosting matches.  Teams will work with recreational sports departments to establish a training progression patterned from the USA Rugby and World Rugby Return to Play protocols.

The conference hopes to be in position to play Olympic Rugby (7s) by October with the Southeastern Championship held in early November.

This spring, competition will begin in mid-February with a conference championship held in April.   SCRC continues to plan for a postseason competition which would include the Big 10, Mid-American (MAC) and the Florida Conference.

The Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference was formed in 2010 as an association of collegiate club rugby programs with shared goals and characteristics from across the Southeastern United States.
