National Small College Rugby Organization

National Small College Rugby Organization

The National Small College Rugby Organization has its beginnings in 2002 to organize the first-ever small college men's and women's college rugby national playoff system. This has now become a vital part in developing collegiate rugby in the U.S. In addition to organizing and managing the playoffs, NSCRO devotes considerable time and energy in working with every collegiate organization providing advice and ideas for growth and improvement.

There are currently over 240 men's and nearly 130 women's teams participating in local Unions and Conferences with their eye on the prize of one of five (5) NSCRO Small College National Championships. In addition, NSCRO holds both a Women's 7s and Men's 15s National All-Star Championship. This represents nearly 40% of all colleges playing rugby in the U.S.  In 2013, NSCRO was recognized by USA Rugby as an independent organization, sharing similar goals for bettering the collegiate rugby experience.
