Stars Rugby 7s Is Headed To Tobago! Player Nominations Open!

Stars Rugby 7s will take two men's and two women's sides to Tobago for the Tobago 7s tournament this December. In years past the competition has featured several NACRA national teams including Mexico, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, and the 2013 champions the Canadian Maple Leafs, as well as touring sides like the Dog River Howlers, Beavers, and Atlantis 7s. The 2014 edition of tournament will field brackets of 12 men's teams and 12-16 women's teams.

Our tour is currently slated for December 10th-15th as it involves long travel days to get through a few airports to Tobago. Initial plans include a group flight from Miami to Port of Spain, Trinidad and either another flight or a ferry to Tobago.

Tour fee is estimated at $1500 to include the flight, hotel, buses, tournament entry fees, food, playing & training kit, trainer & coaches fees and more. Please note this tour fee is an estimate and is subject to change, most likely to decrease. Stars Rugby 7s offers many fundraising and sponsorship opportunities to offset both the team and individual tour costs.


The trip will include team training sessions with coaches from notable 7s programs across North America. The tournament itself guarantees 5 games with as many as 7 for making the championships. There is significant prize money involved as all 4 teams that make the semifinals of each bracket win a share of a prize pool of $15,000.

Interested players must fill out the survey below by August 10th. Selections will be made by August 15th with a $200 deposit due no later than August 20th in order to meet tournament deadlines. A schedule of tour payments will be included with the official invites; any deposits made are non-refundable until a replacement player is found.


Responsibility, communication and dedication to the team all play a factor in selections and continued touring opportunities with the Stars Rugby 7s program. Rugby skills, fitness, and 7s experience are the other determining factors. You can never be too fit for this game, especially going to play in an island nation near the Equator.

Beyond this tour Stars Rugby 7s will take multiple sides to Las Vegas for USA 7s in 2015, an elite men's and women's team each to the Samoa Independence International 7s in May 2015, and multiple sides to return to Stampede 7s in Calgary in July 2015.
