Put yourself on a track to represent your country! Rugby 7s is the sport played in the Olympics and on the world circuit of World Rugby 7s. West End/SYC alum D'montae Noble was recently called up to the USA National 7s Team!

West End/SYC will offer Rugby 7s again this Summer. This is 7 versus 7 rugby that prioritizes speed and space while also requiring the courage, contact, and fitness that we love about 15 versus 15 rugby. 

No worries if you have vacation or camp planned with another sport, we're happy to work around those commitments.

The season starts during the week of June 6 and ends the weekend of July 23. This is a great opportunity for new players to learn about rugby and for returning players to get better. 

All players and coaches must input their USA Rugby registration number with SYC registration. If you registered with USA Rugby at usarugby.sportlomo.com for Fall 2021 or Spring 2022, use that number for Summer 7s. If not, you must register with USA Rugby at usarugby.sportlomo.com.

IMPORTANT: On Sportlomo, we are listed as West End - SYC Youth, NOT SYA.
