USA Rugby City Based 7s Kicks off this Sunday!
Thanks to Ashley for covering the upcoming City Based 7s this weekend!

USA Rugby will hold its first ever City-Based 7’s Tournament this Sunday, July 26th, at Friendship Field in Phoenixville, Pa. The league was created as a way to support the development of
women’s 7’s in the USA. Organizers
hope this year’s pilot program will be a success- one which leads to growth within the league nationally.

The unique aspect of the league, which is made up of four teams: Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, is it is not intended to be a league of All-Star teams, rather they have encouraged players of all skill levels to participate..

In preparation for the tournament each team held tryouts, followed by three to four practices in which a universal practice plan, followed by all the teams, was introduced. The goal of this was to ensure the teams were working towards the same outcome.

The tournament won’t be used just as a means of seeing which team comes out on top, it’s also a tool for the coaches and USA Women’s 7s coach Sue Parker, to gauge how the teams have progressed and highlight any areas in need of improvement. .
