*September 14th Update*
USA Youth & High School Rugby is still working on the new registration system, and has not been able to provide a date for registration to be open. We understand that this has made it difficult for all of our teams to recruit and plan for this fall.
Our Fall 7s season is scheduled to begin next Saturday, September 25th. This does not leave much time for registration and for teams to be able to practice together before the first weekend of scheduled matches. Registration fees for Fall 7s will remain at $125, including the cost of registration with USA Rugby.
Fall 7s is scheduled for September 25 - October 30.
Congratulations to the Reynolds Lady Raiders and the Valley Rams for winning the Girls & Boys Championships respectively!
Many thanks to all of the coaches, parents, and players who helped setup and tear down the fields each week.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
My name is Hannah Foster and I coach for a 7/8th grade girls tackle team for Rugby Oregon. I’m reaching out to fellow RO coaches to see if any of their players are interested in continuing Touch for a few more months. We are hoping to have enough athletes from Rugby Oregon to take at least one Junior Nationals team this coming October. Portland Hunters have graciously offered to coach and we currently practice Sundays from 10-12 at Clinton Park in Portland. The time may change slightly in coming weeks and depending on field availability we may add a second practice on Wednesdays as well.
Seniors who graduated this June are welcome to play. The tournament is scheduled for October 8th and 9th in Phoenix, AZ. We will have more information on costs once we have the team(s) formed but there will most likely be scholarship opportunities for those who cannot afford the travel costs. All we need are kids that are available for those days and can commit to attending 1-2 practices a week located in the Portland-metro area. We have a great coaching staff to support the players' development so they go into the tournament confident about their skills and ability to compete.
Do you know the interest level of any of your team? Let me know if you have any questions about touch or the tournament and I’d be happy to talk further!
