The Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference is pleased to announce their commitment to the ACRA Women’s Division II competition beginning Fall 2020.  The MARC Conference was created in 2012 The Mid Atlantic Rugby Conference—operates as a regional Collegiate competitive organization in conjunction with USA Rugby. MARC administers over 50 Collegiate and University rugby programs, and 2,000 student athletes, in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and Delaware. The MARC mission is to administer and promote competitive rugby, player and coach development, player safety, and community service.

When asked about MARC’s commitment to ACRA Women’s Coordinator Samantha Hoegle said. “ACRA’s sole dedication to women’s rugby made them a great choice for the MARC. The level of competition will be very high with perennial national competitors and cost will be low, both of which were important factors for teams during this tumultuous time of USA Rugby reorganizations and COVID-19”

ACRA was formed about seven years ago and operated women's collegiate rugby in the Northeast, working hard to produce a fall-centric competitive cycle. Once USA Rugby developed a fall playoff for women's D2 college, and ACRA went dormant, but with the massive changes in who is running the college game, ACRA is back. The MARC joins Tri-State Conference and the New England Wide Collegiate Rugby Conference in the ACRA.

The MARC now serves ten women DII programs including newly added Salisbury University. Salisbury joins Bloomsburg University, Temple University, Saint Joseph University, The College of New Jersey, Rowan University, Kutztown University, Drexel University, University of Delaware, and the University of Pennsylvania.
