As a major stop on the elite North American High School Championship 7s Series (NAHS7s) the Tropical 7s will feature the best high school-aged players (both boys and girls) from across North America and around the world in a truly unique international competition.
To facilitate this process and support athletes and their families, the programme is delivered in partnership with the Rugger’s Edge, a leading college advisory firm which has an intimate understanding of the collegiate rugby landscape. Rugger's Edge's founder Karen Fong Donoghue is the leading expert in this field with strong personal relationships with college coaches and in-depth knowledge of how athletic recruiting applies to college admissions and scholarships, who will be on site throughout the tournament to provide group sessions as well as answer individual questions as time allows.
