Open USA Rugby South All-Star tryouts continue this weekend in Roswell, GA for high school players interested in competing in the Las Vegas 7’s rugby tournament early this March. We expect players from nine (9) different states to attend as we prepare for Vegas and where final pool player selections will be confirmed. High School Boys and Girls will meet this Saturday at Roswell Recreation and Parks and then the High School Boys will continue Sunday morning at the Roswell Rugby Complex. These camps will be 7’s focused.

Additionally, we are excited to announce we have added a Boys u14 7’s team for Vegas! Players born after March 3, 2002 are eligible and those interested should attend Saturday’s camp at the Roswell Recreation and Parks location.
