All of the schools will be considered Dl-AA schools by USA Rugby.

The NCRC  is divided, East and West, into two Divisions along geographic lines.  The schools on the West side of the Cascade Mountains are, obviously, the West division and the schools on the East side of the Cascades are the East division.

At the end of the regular season the top team in each division will host the #2 from the opposite division in the NCRC playoffs and the winners of those two games will meet the following week for the NCRC Championship with the higher seed hosting the match.

The winner of the NCRC Championship game will be the NCRC representative to the “Sweet Sixteen” round of the USA Rugby D1-AA National Championships.
