D3 – TRU

The women’s D3 structure has been revamped to allow for true growth and maximum game time. The aim of this structure is to maximize ball in play time, and player development in a set up with more transferability to XV’s than traditional 7s. This should allow clubs to accelerate the growth of new players quicker and more effectively, while providing high involvement levels for experienced players and a competitive environment as you build numbers towards a XV’s squad.

For full regulations, review the 2019 WD3 Guidelines.

D1

Clubs will play the other clubs home and away. Points will be awarded per league match and recorded in CMS in order to rank clubs for playoffs.

Playoffs & Seeding

Conference championships take place in April of each year. Information will be shared with each team individually.
