We are pleased to announce that the Women’s Sevens National Invitational Tournament will take place Saturday and Sunday, August 15-16, 2009 on Treasure Island, hosted by the San Francisco Fog RFC.
Saturday will feature all teams in pool play, leading into Sunday’s trophy rounds and culminating in the crowning of the 2009 National Sevens Champion. All play will take place at the Gaelic Athletic Association’s field at 11th Street and Avenue H on Treasure Island. Saturday afternoon the Gaelic Athletic Association will play the men’s final for Gaelic Football on the same field.
This year marks the inaugural Championship for Women’s Sevens, and will coincide with the Men’s Sevens National Invitational Tournament, hosted by the San Francisco Golden Gate Rugby Football Club, also on Treasure Island.
Dana Creager, fresh from the US National Team, is serving as Competition Coordinator. Creager notes “We are very pleased to be bringing the Inaugural Women’s Sevens tournament to the San Francisco Bay Area, a hotbed of American Rugby, and are honored to be hosted by the San Francisco Fog. It is guaranteed to be a weekend full of great rugby.”
With origins that trace back to Scotland over 125 years ago, Rugby Sevens is a fast paced, high action version of the more traditional 15-person game.
Admission is free to all spectators. More information and directions to the pitch available on the Women’s Sevens National Invitational Tournament website.
The Lady Fog will be gearing up for the fall season with conditioning sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 13 through July 28. Sessions will be held on Treasure Island at the Fog Rugby pitch from 7:30pm to 9pm and led by the Fog’s “Ranger” Jon Nord.
On Thursday, July 23, there will be a BYOM (bring your own meat or meat substitute) BBQ following the conditioning session. There will also be touch rugby on an adjacent field.
As we do every summer, The San Francisco Fog RFC is spending the off-season playing touch rugby twice each week.
Thursday evenings at 7:30pm you can find us at the Fog Rugby pitch.
Saturday mornings at 11am we’re at Ocean Beach, just south of the Cliff House and the Great Highway-Balboa intersection. See the Google Maps below for exact location.
