School Visits, Workouts, USA Roster Picks as LA 7s Arrives

The fans will be ready. David Barpal photo.

The LA Sevens is almost upon us as teams are getting acquainted with the area.

The Adopt-a-Nation program is back again and we have photos of the Japan team visiting Riviera Elementary School. Kids at the schools in the program do projects aobut the country they have adopted, and then host the team for some food and some fun.

After that the teams were back on the training field, albeit with some youth visitors (Argentina).

And back to the gym, with Great Britain, South Africa, Spain, and the referees seen below:


And for the USA? Mike Friday has named his roster for the tournament. The big change is Maka Unufe coming in as part of the group. Unufe, who is still only in his early 30s, has been involved in the USA 7s program since 2011.
