ARP Schedule Unveiled

The ARP is set to kick of its third season in just a few weeks. There are a few changes to the competition this year. Mystic River are now full members of the league while Life are only playing a friendly schedule and not a part of the official competition. Mystic River are a fitting side to join seeing as they beat every other ARP side last year on their way to the DI final. Life's scaling back of their men's program hurts the competition somewhat but they will still be playing traditional rivals Old Blue and NYAC.

The season starts on September 10th with Boston visiting NYAC and the Wolfhounds visiting defending champions Old Blue. Life start their friendly matches on October 15th. The league will take a break for the Maori All Blacks match on November 5th before finishing up the following weekend.

Some big matches to keep an eye on include the Boston derby between Boston and the Wolfhounds on September 17th and October 29th. The New York derby will take place on October 1st and October 29th.

In total all of the Northeast teams will play 8 matches that count in the DI standings. Thanks to their matches against Life, NYAC, Old Blue, and Mystic River will each play 9 total matches.

  1. So the ARP is the Atlantic North D1 from last year?

  2. Why is Life scaling back? Is it because of the travel? Do they have any other plans to remain competitive?
