We’re excited to announce the launch of the very first High School Flag Rugby League in NYC this Fall!
The league offers a great opportunity for teams to sharpen their skills and warm up for the Spring tackle season. Teams are able to enter into the Men’s or Women’s bracket; co-ed teams will be slated into the Men’s division. The league will consist of three pool play dates with a playoff round immediately following the third round on 11/16. New programs are welcome to register. Interested teams should contact the tournament administrator at kristen.guernier@playrugbyusa.
