MARFU ALL-STARS

For 2012, there will not be a Collegiate Men's All-Star side, as a result of the elimination of support of the event by USA Rugby.

See Contacts for coaches of the various programs.

MARFU supports the following All-Star programs:

  • Womenís Club
  • Menís Collegiate
  • Womenís Collegiate
  • Menís 7s
  • Womenís 7s
  • Womenís U19

Coaching Term
  • The term of appointment for All-Star head coaches shall be for three years.
  • The term of the head coach ends after the conclusion of the last event of the competition season as recognized by USA Rugby for that specific All-Star program. In the event that USA Rugby does not recognize a competitive season for an All-Star program, the end of the competitive season shall be determined by MARFU.
  • The head coach can be dismissed prior to the end of the three year term by majority vote of the MARFU BoD.

Coach Application
  • MARFU shall begin accepting requests to coach an All-Star program 30 days after the competitive season ends for the All-Star program.
  • The applicant should submit their request to the MARFU Executive Committee.

Coach Roles and Responsibilities
  • The head coach is responsible for hiring and releasing any staff member that is necessary to run the team. While the staff members may have different roles in supporting the All-Star team, the head coach is ultimately responsible for staffing the All-Star team.
