The RRRC and TRU Championships will take place on April 25-26, 2020. We are officially requesting host applications at this time!
This year will be a combined RRRC / TRU event like last year. The preliminary schedule calls for 7 matches on Saturday, and 4 on Sunday. Participating divisions are:
- RRRC – Apr 25-26
- Men’s D1 (Saturday only match)
- Men’s D2 (Saturday semi-finals, Sunday finals)
- Women’s D2 (Saturday semi-finals, Sunday finals)
- Men’s D3 (Saturday semi-finals, Sunday finals)
- TRU – Apr 26
- Men’s D4 (Sunday only match)
RRRC Women’s D1 will satisfy their champions through league play and a combined Frontier Red River playoff. TRU Women’s D3 will not have a formal championship event this year.
RRRC / TRU reserve the right to change the schedule of matches on Red River Championship weekend to accommodate referee availability and selected venue constraints. A final schedule will be published after selection of a venue for the event.
Applications are due February 8, 2020 and will be reviewed by Marcus Leming (RRRC D2 Men’s), John Kurylas (RRRC / TRU D3 Men’s), Kat Roche (TRRA / TRU Intern) and Wendy Young (RRRC WD1 / TRU Admin), then voted on by the full RRRC Committee and TRU Board.
Hosts will be selected by February 20 and the announcement will be placed on the TRU website.
