The Elite Insurance Sevens Series gives young rugby players from across the East of England the opportunity to begin a potential journey to the Olympic Games.
The Elite Insurance Sevens Series has grown rapidly since its inception in 2013, and in 2015 over 140 teams took part. In all over 3,000 young rugby players have competed in the tournament, which now consists of six regional groups (Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk) followed by a Finals Day at Franklin's Gardens.
Initially designed for Under-13 school and club teams, who each have their own separate tournaments, the Elite Insurance Sevens Series is set to expand further in coming years, with competitions being established for Under-18 and girls' teams, too.
Each team that enters is provided with branded t-shirts, with each tournament being refereed by fully qualified officials. Coaching is being offered by the Saints' FREE OF CHARGE on a first come, first served, basis, with each school also able to send staff members on a complimentary 'Coach the Coaches' session.
The Elite Insurance Sevens Series regional tournaments take place in the spring, with precise dates and locations to be announced during the course of the season.
Coaching sessions, which take place early in the spring term, have been increasingly popular over the past few years, so early booking is recommended.
