The North American Invitational 7s is back again for another run this August 4-5, and FloRugby.com is live-streaming all the action in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The NAI 7s, held at the Regional Athletic Complex, brings top select high school 7s programs from around North America in an elite-level format. This tournament is the flagship of what is expected to become a North American series of top events. Last year, the Upright Rugby Rogues defeated Eagle Impact Rugby Academy with a last-second try to win the Boys Elite bracket.
The Ontario-based Upright program made it a double when the Rogues also took the Girls Elite bracket.
This year, there will be seven brackets in all. Upright heads up a stacked boys bracket that also features the Atlantis U18 and U17 teams, EIRA, USA Rugby South, Play Rugby USA CODP, Atavus Academy Utah, Tundra out of Minnesota, Rhinos Academy, and several others.
The girls elite bracket includes Upright, Atlantis, Atavus Academy Utah, Atavus All-Stars, and the Land Park Harlequins, to name a few.
