The Carolina Rugby Union is launching a Men’s High Performance 7s program with its eye on competing in the Las Vegas Invitational on March 1st. There will be 3 open development sessions, the first of which is being hosted by the Charlotte Rugby Club on December 15th.
All of the assemblies are free of charge and open to ALL men in the Carolinas ages 18+.
