CRAA 7s & 15s Championship Schedule

  • 30 Apr 2024
Penn State rugby

The College Rugby Association of America (CRAA) is hosting its 2023-24 finale from Friday-Sunday, May 3-5 at the Houston SaberCats facility. The women’s 7s championships are May 3-4, and the women’s spring 15s finals are Sunday, May 5. The Rugby Network will live-stream matches (for free), although TBD on whether the coverage applies to the stadium games only.


There are 10 NCAA varsity and DI Elite teams competing in this bracket, and they’re divided into two pools of five teams:

POOL A: Central Washington, Dartmouth, Davenport, Life, Princeton
POOL B: Harvard, Lindenwood, Long Island, Penn State, Sacred Heart

Teams play all of their pool mates — i.e., four games total — mostly on Friday (four games spill into Saturday morning). All of these games occur inside the stadium, with the exception of two Saturday morning games.

The top-two teams from each pool advance to the Cup semifinals inside the stadium, and then play to 1st and 3rd places. The rest of the field moves directly to their final-place matches on Saturday.
