Two dozen of the best high school rugby teams in the U.S. are returning to Elkhart for an unprecedented third year in a row for the Boys High School National Championships from May 23-25, 2024, at the Moose Rugby Grounds.1500 County Road 6 West.
More than 800 athletes, coaches and staff and more than 1,200 fans from as far away as California, Connecticut, Florida and Texas will call Elkhart home, bringing an economic boost to Elkhart-area businesses and further bolstering Elkhart’s reputation as a hotbed for youth rugby. The Boys High School National Championships is the third significant rugby competition in what has turned out to be a busy spring season in Elkhart County. The boys and girls Midwest championships took place on separate weekends in April.
“We are thrilled to have this event return to our backyard. While it’s a considerable amount of work by a select few people, the benefits for the local community and revenue return are significant. We are excited that the coaches from last year’s event voted to come back to our facility,” Bart Bottorff, director of the Moose Rugby Grounds, said.
Competition over the three days will take place in three divisions (single school, club, and tier-2) with games starting at noon each day on the Moose Rugby Grounds’ three fields. Fans pay an entry fee at the gate of $25 for a three-day pass.
