It is truly a unique experience for the players.”

The NAHS7s– the North American High School 7s Championship Series-- is a 7s-focused series of competitions that provides high school age players the opportunity to compete amongst high-performance academy teams for an annual North American championship. The NAHS stops in 2020 include the Tropical 7s and North American Invitational 7s in Salt Lake City. In 2021, NAHSA7s will be expanding into a 3rd stop in the Great White North.

“Tropical 7s is a great stop for us, especially our Canadian academy teams seeking a little warmth.” said NAHS7s President Michael Cressler. “As a first stop of the circuit, it brings a great location at the Omni Resort. The teams love the quality of the surfaces, the referees provided by Back10Pros (a circuit partner), all in a well-run tourney."
