BC Rugby is sending eight teams from the Elite Youth Sevens Program to Vegas. Over the year, the tourney has been a regular event for B.C. teams, as both an opportunity to introduce aspiring young players to a higher level of competition, as well as a platform for more established players to pit themselves against an array of quality teams and academies from across North America and beyond.
