The National Small College Rugby Organization is proud to announce that the NSCRO/Penn Mutual Women’s 7’s Select Side will return to the Las Vegas Invitational 7’s tournament, February 28 - March 1, 2019, and to the Collegiate Rugby Championships to be held in Philadelphia in early June 2019.
Players for the program are viewed at the NSCRO Women’s 15’s Championship, Women’s 7’s National Championship, and the 2019 NSCRO Women’s 7’s All-Star Championships. While these events provide an opportunity to view players in person the most important piece of the selection process is the online Player Recommendation Form. This creates a pathway for the players from the teams who may not be as successful at the National level, and who otherwise may not get seen by the NSCRO coaching staff. The success of this pathway and the success of the program lies in the hands of the team coaches who all can be an advocate for their player's selection.
2019 will be a rebuilding year so the program will enter two teams into the 2019 Las Vegas Invitational Tournament. Final selections for the squads participating in Las Vegas will be made on Thursday, January 24th, 2019. So, please submit your nominations no later than Wednesday, January 23rd.
The program is made possible by Penn Mutual and their continued support in the growth of women’s rugby. Contact Bryn Chivers at email@example.com or 773-308-3430 if you have questions about the program or would like to discuss a player in more detail.
