The Rugby Americas North Championship, known before the 2016 edition as the NACRA Rugby Championship, is a championship for Tier 3 members of Rugby Americas North in men's 15-a-side rugby union.

The current format of the tournament has all the teams split between the north and south. North and south are then split into the Championship (higher division) and the Cup. The highest placed team in the cup plays the bottom team in the championship for promotion. The winner of the north championship plays the winner of the south championship in the final of the RAN Championship.[1]

The scoring system is slightly different from regular rugby union tournaments, with a win worth 2 points instead of 4.

Trinidad and Tobago is the most recent champion, winning the 2015 tournament.
