Fall 7s General Information


  • It will be a 4 week season, with games on Sundays.
  • For the first three weeks, each team/side will get a minimum of two matches on each Sunday.
  • The first three weeks scores/results will not be counted toward the ranking for championship. These weeks will filled with lots of fun rugby, and teachable moments. (We will use the new USA Rugby Competition System to learn and prepare for Spring - but again, scores won't count).
  • Teams should plan on a travel cross-over to the other regions.
  • The 4th week will be a championship type day.  Rosters due at check in,  morning pool play, afternoon brackets lead to championship. Everyone starts the day/event with a clean slate, anyone can win. There will be awards.

  • Teams are responsible for their own food on game days, as many of the match dates will be like Super Sites, and expecting one team to feed everyone would not be reasonable.  Teams/clubs are welcome to work together to create a larger social atmosphere. Home Pitch locations may have concessions, and are advised that if they go that route, to let the teams coming know in advance,
