BOULDER, Colo. — USA Rugby is extremely proud and humbled to announce that the United States Marine Corps is now an Official Partner of USA Rugby Collegiate Division 1A, the elite men’s college rugby competition in America.
Rugby and the military have long been intertwined; both value and require extraordinary mental and physical strength, selflessness, commitment to a team and a task, and excellent leadership. The United States Marine Corps and USA Rugby are committed to the values they share and also to shaping quality citizens and community leaders.
“It’s an honor to partner with any branch of the U.S. military, but especially with the United States Marine Corps. The Marines have been vital in securing freedoms that we enjoy today in the United States and D1A Rugby is truly proud to call the Marine Corps a partner,” said USA Rugby Director of Operations, Jim Snyder.
The USMC will have a presence at the D1A semifinals and championship, as well as select regular season games.
