About XV Series

What is it?

XV SERIES™ is a USA based non-profit program whose goal is to develop and support amateur American rugby athletes, referees and support staff whilst providing a recognizable pathway of development, enabling progression to professional, elite league or national representation.

Pathway & Progression

XV SERIES seeks to provide a first opportunity to identify those players with the greatest potential, to enter the pathway towards the professional game and the USA Eagles.

Opportunity & Development

XV SERIES is a pathway program that interacts with regional rugby programs, providing opportunity without the limiting performance factors of playing for league position and supports the identification of players entering the professional game.


“With the XV Series competition, our coaches and players will be put in a position to participate in high quality rugby and prepare them for whatever their rugby aspirations are. We are looking forward to the coming season and can’t wait to compete against some of the best teams in the country!”

Kellen Gordon
Men’s Director of Rugby, Seattle Rugby Club

“I’m thrilled that Seattle Rugby Club is part of the XV Series. We’re looking forward to rich opportunities for our women - players, coaches, staff, and referees - to gain high level experience in preparing for and performing in XV Series matches.”

Liz Kirk
Women’s Director of Rugby, Seattle Rugby Club

“The California Grizzlies are excited to be a part of a national program that is designed to promote American players and coaches. We aim to provide a pathway opportunity for US eligible players and local coaches to showcase their abilities.”

Adrian Ferris
Athletics Director, California Grizzlies

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the Mission?

Our goal is to build out a series of competitive matches under the XV SERIES program which will help develop players, coaches, referees, medical and management to succeed at the next level.

Who should become a member of the XV SERIES

We want to work with like minded people/organizations/clubs/universities who want to:

  • Develop US players, coaches, referees and support staff.
  • Support the national program.
  • Create ongoing opportunities through rugby.
  • Build skills for everyday life.
Do we have to commit to a set number of games?

No, some of the benefits of the XV SERIES are:

  • Member teams don’t have to commit to a full season of XV SERIES games that they can‘t afford.
  • Games will be played at locations where it makes most sense for the teams involved.
Is this another US rugby league?

No, the mission and focus of this nonprofit program is on people development, not a cup or winning a league:

  • The XV SERIES isn’t in competition with clubs or pro rugby. It is here to complement both and develop all those involved with rugby.
  • Players can CIPP with their home clubs and still play in these developmental games and thus increase their rugby knowledge and skills, which in turn benefits the local teams.
