The new 2017-18 North American League (NAL) for Underwater Rugby season is about to start in just two weeks in Newark, NJ a city just 40 minutes from New York City. This time hosted by the New Jersey Hammerheads club, the first round of the new season hopes to be the milestone of the new ladies tournament during NAL events.
After the unfortunate events of the 18th NAL that had to be cancelled due to hurricane Irma, the Canadian and US clubs are eager to resume UWR playing soon.
The new season brings changes to the NAL rules on which the most important is the “guest rule” on which club teams can only have a max. of 2 guest players (reduced from 3 from the previous season) The amended rule encourages teams to keep developing local talent.
The 19th NAL tournament will be also the first participation of the U-21 candidates as a team looking forward to their preparation for next year’s 1st CMAS UW Rugby Championship in Germany.
The NAL events are open to foreign teams and also individual players through a “mix team”
