Women's Northeast 7s Championship

Women's Northeast 7s Championship

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:

Newport Sevens Tournament
June 23Newport, RI
Monmouth 7s - Showdown at the ShoreJuly 7Monmouth, NJ
Saratoga Sevens Rugby InvitationalJuly 14Saratoga, NY

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 (sevens@empiregurugby.com ).
