The UR7s Junior Championships is returning to Basingstoke RFC for 2019 and is set to be bigger than ever in it’s 6th season in Hampshire. Played across 6 fields, the tournament features competitions for U13-U16 age-groups and is a culmination of UR7s’ junior competitions run across April & May. Depending on age-group, teams will compete in tournaments featuring from 12-20 teams with each side guaranteed 4 or 5 matches plus a professional masterclass from the UR7s Academy coaches.
Masterclasses for All
As well as quality competition, all UR7s competitions include a 7s masterclass for all entered teams from an international 7s player on the day.
International players & coaches such as Chris Cracknell, Sam Edgerley, Christian Lewis-Pratt and many more work the teams over a short session underlining some of the important aspects of the game of 7s.
The UR7s National Academy scouting department use all UR7s competitions to watch and scout players for the National Academy program that runs from August to June each year. Scouts will spend time with club coaches to get to know players and how they might benefit from being involved in the UR7s National Academy program.
