The North American Invitational 7s is essentially sold out, but there's still hope.
The NAI 7s, to be held July 22-23 in Salt Lake City, will have 13 brackets from U12 to U23, and there may be one or two spots in a couple of those brackets.
The USA Rugby South Panther program had a pretty successful weekend at the Tropical 7s, winning at three different age groups, including at the U16 level.
Mike Orefice scouted and assembled the team and Gary Anderson and Andy Thomas coached the squad.
The Tropical 7s kicks off Friday with 135 teams in action at the Tournament Sportsplex in Tampa, Fla.
The event will be live-streamed on The Moment at https://themomentlive.tv/landing/index - starting at 1AM ET Friday you can purchase access.
The North American Invitational 7s brackets are already filling up even though there are several months to go.
The demand for well-run rugby tournaments appears to be growing, especially after so many tournaments were canceled in 2020 and 2021. The NAI 7s came back in 2021 with a vengeance and provided plenty of high-level playing opportunities.
