The National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) was created in 2007 by Chip Auscavitch and Steve Cohen to support and encourage the development and organization of small college rugby in the United States.

Championships

The NSCRO runs the following national championship events for both men's and women's college rugby clubs in both 15s and 7s rugby:

Prior to 2007, the men's 15s national championship (Men's Champions Cup) was known as the East Coast Division III Collegiate Rugby Championships, and Men’s Division III National Championship until 2012.

History

In 2008 was approved by USA Rugby. In August 2012, NSCRO reclassified Division 3 as Small College Rugby, and since 2015 Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company is the main sponsor. [1]
