Virgin Islands Hosting College 7s Tournament

The United States Virgin Islands Rugby Football Union has announced the Spring Break 7s Rugby Tournament the Rugby Rugby Paradise Smash. The tournament is open to college teams or U-23 club side. The tournament will take place on March 25th, 2017 on the island of St. Thomas. However, there is an entire week of events planned leading up to the tournament, including beach rugby, motley game, and a USVI Privateers Exhibition match. For teams that traditionally like to go on tour during Spring Break or those that are looking for something fun and enjoyable this is a good opportunity. 

According to host team coordinator Mark Grimes "the tournament website has information there about getting to the USVI and what to budget for your flights, hotel, on island transportation, and food/entertainment. We are collecting a commitment fee of $480 per team and we have many generous sponsors who look forward to having all of the teams here in the Virgin Islands. We also have community service opportunities for teams to participate in while in the Virgin Islands - some of our committed teams are using this as an opportunity to raise money for travel and accommodations."

Interested teams can contact Grimes as well as find out more information on Facebook. Spots are limited (10 teams) so teams should hurry.
