Matches will be webcast live at the USA Rugby UStream channel with the first broadcast match kicking off at 9am local time. NOTE: I believe this is only the men’s matches as the women are playing on Field 2. Maybe the finals will broadcast?
SCHEDULE & POOLS:
Thanks to everyone that has sent in emails to help sort this tournament out! It looks like we have all the correct teams in place now!
Since this is a relatively new tournament (made official last year) LAUs were asked to organize club teams at last minute this year. For instance the West received an email asking for two teams about three weeks ago…so some areas may have more seeds than others if they had more time and/or already had 7s programs in development.
Also note that NOVA had two teams and both teams qualified for the USAR tournament, but a eligibility ruling (based off Men’s 7s) only allows one team. Basically NOVA 2 would have had to CIPP as an independent team to be considered for the tournament. Fair or not? See the discussion here. Also, here are the most recent 7s eligibility rules.
Coach: Evan Haigh
Suzanne “Cupcake” Uchneat
Coach: Jason Payne
Coach: Laura Hertel
