The Return of the All Florida Rugby Teams

All Florida Honorary Teams

The FRU is creating Divisional All Florida Teams, these are honorary teams selected via accumulation of voting points over the course of the season. The top (15) players with the highest voting points at the conclusion of the season will be announced as members of their Divisional All Florida Team. 

Each team Head Coach will be requested to complete voting for their match. They are asked to pick their game’s best forward and best back from either team. The winning team will be given a third vote from the match. Each vote a player receives gives them (1) point in the season tally. The season tally will be updated weekly with (1) player from across all of the Divisions announced as the Player of the Round. 

The Divisions completing this will be 

  • Men’s Premier 
  • Women’s Premier 
  • Men’s Division (3)
  • Men’s Division (4) 
  • Women’s College 

Voting should be completed by coaches by 9am on Monday morning following their match, via this link

Ideally, we are able to post via social media the current player standing on this to drive awareness and interest in being apart of one of the All Florida Teams. 

All Florida Representative Teams

Longer-term we are looking to create both a traveling Men’s and Women’s All Florida Representative team. This team’s focus is more on the development of players and coaches. Teams are looking to be more representative of all of the clubs rather than being an All-Star team. 

Men’s Representative Team 

  • Each of (19) Men’s clubs across the three divisions will be allotted (5) players to be able to attend a selection camp, for a maximum of 95 players total able to attend the camp. 
  • In the event there spots available for the selection camp, these spots will be offered the champions and runners up of each division first in the order of Premier, D3 & D4. 
  • The program coach/selectors must select in the final squad (1) player from each club.
  • In the event a club does not send any players the program coach/selectors will not be required to select a player from that club. 

Women’s Representative Team 

  • Each of (5) Senior Women’s clubs plus the (8) College Women’s Clubs will be allotted given (8) players to attend a selection camp, for a maximum of (104) players total able to attend the camp. 
  • In the event there are spots available for the selection camp, these spots will be offered the champions and runners up of each division. 
  • The program coach/selectors must select in the final squad (1) player from each club.
  • In the event a club does not send any players the program coach/selectors will not be required to select a player from that club. 

We will begin researching possible tournaments and opponents for this to ensure we have an appropriate budget, as well as communicate with players for their desire to participate with a team like this.
