The Northeast ODA Sevens squad has been announced to compete in the Serevi Sevens to be held at Infinity Park, Glendale CO on August 16-17, 2014. This is one of the top domestic tournaments in the USA and will see the Northeast side drawn against domestic and international, club and invitational opposition.

The combined squad is comprised of twelve players from the Northeast Olympic Development Academy (ODA) based in New York and Boston, although six other Academy players will be on duty with the New York City 7’s at Twickenham.

In Glendale, the squad will be coached by the New England Prime pairing of Josh Smith and Kayne Bubb. Rob Chudzik is the Manager.

“The Northeast Academy will have 18 players playing high-level Sevens in two different venues on different continents which is a testament to the hard work done by players, coaches and administrators over the last year. We also have a very competitive club comp here in the Northeast now, which, in line with our mission as an Academy, has raised standards all round, producing new players such as Sean McGarrity of the CT Bulldogs and Gavin D’Amore of Boston this year. In addition, it is personally gratifying to see the return of Vini Daley from a very serious injury last summer. We have confidence in this group of players and wish them well. We are thankful again for the generous assistance we have received from the Empire and New England Unions as well as our other sponsors, RealTime Sports and Rhino Sports UK”, said Northeast ODA Director of Coaching Steve Lewis.
