If you are thinking about playing at the Tropical 7s, here are 5 benefits why your team should be registering early for next Easter's tournament...

Guarantee your team’s place in the tournament: Teams have started to register earlier than ever for our 2023 tournament. Get your team registered today and know your team’s space is secured as there are a limited number of team spaces for each division. Once a division is full, the division will move to waitlist. A team’s acceptance into the tournament is subject to satisfactory compliance with USA Rugby who sanction our event.

Secure your tournament accommodation: Event Connect, our accommodation partner, have negotiated discounted rates with over 15 hotels in the Tampa area for the 2023 Tropical 7s. However, demand for rooms is expected to be high based on anticipated team numbers, Easter week/weekend) and because of other sporting events taking place in Tampa the same weekend. Accommodation can be blocked for up to 10 days without commitment. However teams must register for the tournament first in order to block or book rooms at tournament partner hotels.

Request your preferred training times: Once registered, teams are able to request their preferred training times from Monday 3rd April to Thursday 6th April inclusive. Training under flood lights is also available. Demand for field time on both Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th April 2023 is expected to be high. While we try to accommodate individual team requests as best as we can, training time allocations will be made on a first come first served basis.

Reserve your team tent area: Registered teams are able to reserve space in our covered tent areas that provide welcome shelter from the Florida sunshine. The areas are available to teams from Thursday to Saturday (all 3 days). However, there is a limited number of team tent areas available and we strongly advise teams reserve and pay for these well in advance to avoid any disappointment.

Sit back and relax, knowing you are all sorted and you can focus your time and energy on the team’s preparations for the 2023 Tropical 7s!

Registration for the 2023 Tropical 7s is currently open. Youth & university teams from around the globe are invited to compete in the International Youth Rugby Sevens tournament to be held on 7-8 April 2023 (Fri/Sat of Easter weekend) at the Tournament Sportsplex of Tampa Bay in Florida, USA.

Teams are invited to arrive early in the week to set up training camp with playing pitches available from Monday 3rd April 2023, with the official Tropical 7s Athlete Combine and Talent ID Session scheduled to be held on Thursday 6th April 2023.
