10th Annual Frostbite Rugby Tournament
Lancaster, PA


Update: as of 5:10 am, Saturday

Thank you for your patience as we evaluated the weather and its impact on the 2019 Frostbite Rugby Tournament. After much deliberation, we have decided to cancel the entire event scheduled for March 2-3, 2019. This was a difficult decision, however we wanted to make sure to communicate in a timely manner to minimize the inconvenience for teams and families. This decision was based on several key factors:

  • Heavier than expected snowfall overnight fields unplayable and the parking lots unplowed
  • The potential for additional ice and snow accumulation on Saturday night into Sunday morning and the even bigger pending storm coming Sunday afternoon.
  • The safety of players, spectators, and officials based on unsafe field conditions

The Frostbite Tournament committee recognizes the time and money spent by teams and families to pursue our event. To that end, we will evaluate where we are and start the refunding process within the next 14 to 21 business days.
