2012 NORTH CAROLINA
The North Carolina Youth Rugby Union (NCYRU) is set to kick off the 2012 annual RUGBY festival and tournament March 10th and 11th at Elon Park in Charlotte, NC.
There will be over 42 teams comprising a cross section of high school men and women teams as well as a contingent of middle school boys. Over 1000 players will converge in the Ballantyne area of south Charlotte to contend for the related championships of each age bracket. The North Carolina Spring Ruggerfest is one of the largest youth league rugby tournaments in the United States. Teams attend from a dozen east coast states as well as teams from Canada and The Caribbean.
All spectators are welcome, but good sportsmanship and thunderous cheering for the participants is required!
New to the 2012 Ruggerfest will be our College Showcase game between The University of Notre Dame and rugby powerhouse Life University out of Marietta, Georgia. This will be a regular season game played at Providence High School March 10, 2012 at 7pm. This game will help determine season rankings and post season tournament brackets.
There will be rugby related giveaways and raffles at the game. Including signed USA Eagle sportswear.
