The tournament will consist of the GHSAAs, a Canadian U18 side and four local sides.

Farrah Douglas, Head Coach of the Girl’s High School All-Americans said “As we look to return to Vichy, France, for the European 7s Championships and begin to think about the preparation for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games, we see this tournament as a development opportunity. We have selected some of our younger players from the France series, such as team captains Julia Riekena and Cassidy Bargell, to challenge them in becoming strong team leaders and push their understanding around how we want to strategically play sevens.”

 

“We also see this event as an opportunity to provide some of the newer players to our sevens program experience within our system of play to prepare them for potential selection for France.”

The GHSAAs will play three matches Friday, April 14, before finishing round-robin play Saturday, April 15. The six teams in the under-18 competition will then be seeded based on results for one-off knockouts, consisting of two consolation matches and one championship final.

There are also plans for a summer camp for the GHSAAs ahead of a planned series with Canada.
