LA 7s & LAI
It’s a busy time for the Atlantis select side program.
After fielding four women and girls teams at the New York 7s, all of which made their respective finals, Atlantis will send a men’s team and a women’s team to the Barbados 7s this weekend, and has also signed up to be in the LA Invitational as part of the LA 7s international weekend February 29-Mach 1.
The venue hosting the LA 7s February 29-March 1 has undergone some major upgrades in the last few years, making Dignity Health Sports Park—slated to be the rugby venue for the 2028 Olympics—something of a newly-burnished jewel on the rugby landscape.
The LA 7s World Series tournament has an invitational surrounding it which has over two-dozen brackets, one that gives players an exciting playing experience and while also exposing them to some of the top rugby athletes around the world.
The Southern California Youth Rugby has embraced the LA Invitational and the LA Sevens, and the tournament weekend, February 28-March 1, and the organization leadership thinks the value is more than just being available to play a few rugby games.
