Put yourself on a track to represent your country! Rugby Sevens is the sport played in the Olympics, Premier Rugby Sevens, and on the world circuit of HSBC World Rugby Sevens. 

West End/SYC will offer Rugby Sevens 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 May 29/30 and ends the weekend of July 20. 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 https://xplorer.rugby/west-end-syc-rugby/ for Fall 2023 or Spring 2024, use that number for Summer Sevens. 

IMPORTANT: If you did not play rugby during Fall 2023 or Spring 2024, you must register with USA Rugby at https://xplorer.rugby/west-end-syc-rugby/. USA Rugby has a 2-step process: register for an account and receive a member number; then, continue through the system to pay for the registration.
