Founded in 2012, Colonial Coast Rugby is one of the first division three men’s and women’s rugby conferences in the United States. The conference serves small colleges in the New England area, continually growing and adding new teams.
The goal of the CCRC is to create stronger rugby programs throughout the region. We accomplish this goal by facilitating heightened awareness of the sport on college campuses, educating players and coaches new and old, and fostering traditional college rivalries through a "new" sport. The conference's role in the evolution of American rugby is first and foremost to provide a professionally run, organized, and enthusiastic conference for men's and women's teams to call home and reach out to for support.
