Liberty Cup Looking For Women's 7s Teams

The Liberty Cup tournament in NYC is looking for women's programs for a new 7s bracket as a part of this year's event. The tournament is looking to host 8-10 teams for a one day tournament with a discounted registration fee of $100 if you mention the Stars team!

Liberty Cup 15s Rugby tournament is a biennial rugby tournament that will be expanding to 12 team format, including men's and women's 15s and a new women's 7s tournament in 2014. It will be played every two years following 2012. It started in 2007 with New York Police Dept. RFC and Bragg RFC. Evolving in 2009, it has grown to include Fire Dept. of New York and Camp Le Juene Marine base. 

In Feb 2011 these 4 teams played in Las Vegas during the USA Sevens Rugby Tournament. Understanding that this is a global war, we are expanding to include teams from across the globe. This tournament is played to honor our ruggers who have sacrificed for American Liberty relating to the tragedy on 9/11/01. Entry fee is $500 per team. This will be a USA Rugby sanctioned event. All players must be CIPP'ed. A team roster will be needed 6 weeks prior to event!!
