Two Hot Tickets for Ohio Summer Sevens

With the 15s season coming to a close, the time has come to turn attention towards the summer sevens season. There are two big tournaments set to take place in Ohio, and both have the potential to bring big crowds and big names to compete in the state.

The first tournament is Cin City Sevens. The competition will take place at the home of the Cincinnati Wolfhounds, Brimelow Fields in Fairfield, Ohio, on June 11.

This tournament kicks off the summer of sevens competitions and will host men's teams, women's teams and U-19 boys' teams that want to compete. While the women and boys will compete in social sevens action, the men's division will act as the first leg of Midwest Rugby Football Union's Qualifier Series. The men that compete in this bracket will begin a journey that will, hopefully, lead to a Midwest Championship and a berth at Nationals.

The first team entered for any MWRFU Club, Men's side or Women's side will cost $250, while subsequent entries will get $50 knocked off. U-19 teams will have to put down $150 to secure a spot in the competition. A service fee may be added to online registrations.

For more information, contact Brendan O'Connor, Cin City 7s Tournament Director or Al Lucas, the CRFC Sevens Coach.

The Rock n Roll Sevens tournament returns to prominence this summer, joining Cin City Sevens as the second tournament in the state. This year's event will be on July 9, 2016.

LIke in Cinicnnati, Series Qualifier points will be on the line for teams looking to qualify for the
National Championship. The difference is that the women will have a chance to make a run at Series Points as well.

On top of the qualifier brackets, there will also be opportunities for social sides to play. There will be competition for men, women, high school boys and high school girls.

All this will be taking place at Donald E. Kreuger Park in Mentor, Ohio (7556 Chillicothe
Rd, Mentor, OH 44060).

Teams in the Qualifier bracket will have to shell out $300, while teams in the Social brackets will only have to put down $250. High school boys and girls will only have to pay $150 for a chance to play.

To register a team or ask for more information, contact John Hummel.

These are just the first two sevens tournaments to be announced. As more arise, the information will be displayed.
