LA 7s & LAI
Fans of international 7s have only a couple of days to lock in the lower tickets prices for the LA 7s.
Held February 29 to March 1, the LA 7s will host the 16 top men's 7s teams in the world as part of the HSBC Sevens World Series. This is an excellent Olympic preview, and a chance to see major international superstars at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, CA.
Eagle Impact Rugby Academy will likely be sending three teams to the LA Invitational February 28-29, said Head Coach Salty Thompson.
The select-side program will enter two teams into the U18 Boys 7s brackets, EIRA Red and EIRA Blue, and a U16 team, as well.
When Mickey Patterson was taking Eagle Mountain Rugby to a select-side 7s tournament for high-schoolers, he saw that three of his strongest players were going to miss it because they were playing with a major select-side in a higher bracket; Patterson looked around, concluded he had a pretty good group of athletes, and figured "maybe I can have an elite select-side team too."
The LA 7s higher-level seats are going very quickly, and it's actually not a surprise given that the prices are much more attractive than they were when the event was held in Las Vegas.
