The league was created when Rugby Canada decided to disband the Rugby Canada Super League (RCSL) and replace it with a new under-20 league. The league consisted of 13 teams, and was broken up into 4 divisions; Pacific, Prairie, Central, and Atlantic.

The league was intended to train, test, and get young rugby players ready so that someday they will be able to compete for the Canadian national rugby union team.[1]
