USA Rugby Announces Spring Playoff, Championship Venues


BOULDER, Colo. - USA Rugby announced today the locations and venues for the spring 2012 playoffs and championships at the college, high school, and men's senior club levels.


To help participating teams reduce the cost of travel, there will be four locations for most playoff events. 


As of Monday January 16, two locations (northeast and south) for Women's DI and DII College playoffs are yet to be finalized.  USA Rugby's events department is currently in discussions with potential hosts for those two locations, and hope to have them finalized by February.
