USA Rugby is proud to announce that seven women’s national team players have signed full-time training contracts with the union. The seven female athletes make history as the first-ever USA Women’s National team players to be contracted by USA Rugby.
The USA Women’s Eagle Sevens team claimed fourth place in the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, with an overall record of 2-3. The tournament marked the start of the first-ever IRB Women’s Sevens Challenge Cup.
The USA Women's Eagle Sevens team will take part in the first of a five-tournament 2011-2012 season this Friday in Dubai. The tournament marks the beginning of the IRB Women’s Sevens Challenge Cup, an expanded women’s competition aimed at growing the Olympic version of the game.
USA Rugby is thrilled to announce an exciting development for rugby in the United States. Starting in January 2012, a partnership between the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and USA Rugby will allow 23 rugby sevens athletes to receive fulltime training contracts in 2012.
