Summer 2018: Inaugural Women's Northeast 7s Club Championship Se
- Apr 09,2018
Summer is just around the corner and we're hoping for another scorcher of a 7s season!
Rosalie MacGowan, EMPIRE GU Executive Director of 7s, and John McGeachy, NERFU Executive Director of 7s, are pleased to announce the launch of the inaugural Women's Northeast 7s Club Championship Series.
This will be an EMPIRE/NERFU combined series and will include three tournaments. At the conclusion of the series, the top two teams will earn bids to USA Rugby's Club 7s National Championship, held August 11-12.
We believe this is a great opportunity to increase the level of competition and for the best teams in the region to be playing one another more often. The tournaments are scheduled as follows:
* June 23 - Newport
* July 7 - Monmouth
* July 14 - Saratoga
Note: Normally, the series would be four tournaments, however, with the Elite Women's tournament scheduled for the June 16 weekend, followed by the World Cup 7s on the July 20 weekend, there simply weren't enough available weekends.
Clubs and teams: please confirm your participation, or at least provide an indication if this is something you will compete in, by contacting John (Jmcgeachy26@gmail.com) and Rosalie (firstname.lastname@example.org).
