TALENT IDENTIFICATION PROGRAMME

RUGBY RECRUITERS INVITED TO ATTEND HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER SHOWCASE

The TROPICAL 7s Talent ID Programme aims to facilitate the identification and recruitment of aspiring young talent playing at the Tropical 7s from across a range of rugby recruiting programs (e.g. national selectors, college/university coaches, academy directors, etc).  

For the 2022 TROPICAL 7s, USA Rugby will be hosting an official USAR Talent ID Session alongside the Tropical 7s ATHLETE COMBINE. Youth players will be able to interact with USAR high performance coaches and national selectors. 

 

The TROPICAL 7s features top high school-aged players (both boys and girls) from across North America and attracts players around the world in a truly unique rugby competition.  TROPICAL 7s has developed a strong reputation within both the national and international rugby communities to ensure a high standard of competition that aspiring high school-aged players are seeking.  

 

The TROPICAL 7s Talent ID Programme grows each year and has attracted national selectors from USA and Canada as well as university coaches from higher education rugby programmes within the US and abroad.
