TALENT ID PROGRAMME

RUGBY RECRUITERS INVITED TO ATTEND HIGH SCHOOL TALENT SHOWCASE

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

Tropical 7s features the 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.  As an official stop on the elite North American High School Championship 7s Series (NAHS7s), 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 college coaches from higher education rugby programs within the US and abroad.
