GRR: Utah Youth Rugby
High School rugby is still divided into single-school and club categories.
Belmont Shore and Rhino Rugby Academy ran off with 3-0 records in a series of shortened games at the Storer Classic at UCLA.
The tournament, which is part of the annual collegiate Storer Classic (won by Cal), is a series of shortened games among teams from Southern California, Northern California, and Utah.
The Arizona Bobcats HS select side program is back with another running of the Roadrunner 7s in Phoenix.
The tournament, thanks in large part to Jessica Brandt, was a big success last year and as happened in 2018 it will include teams from Arizona, Nevada, and Utah.
Utah Youth Rugby is set to hold a huge Pink Sevens tournament, and for the 5th year in a row this event brings girls together to build the game.
Fall 7s in high school has been taking over the country, at least parts of the country, and has become an excellent way of recruiting young people to the game.
Every state does it differently; some have boys and girls and multiple divisions, some have just girls playing, and some make it just a low-intensity fun thing.
Here’s a look.
