“We are excited to announce the teams for our U18 Elite divisions where we host the NAHS7s series for both boys and girls,” said TROPICAL 7s Executive Director John Siner. “This is a special competition where we have the best of North American competition mixing with top international teams and fulfills our goal of having the highest competitive standard. It is truly a unique experience for the players.”

The NAHS7s – the North American High School 7s Championship Series -- is a 7s-focused series of competitions that provides high school age players the opportunity to compete amongst high performance academy teams for an annual North American championship

“Tropical 7s is a great stop for us, especially our Canadian academy teams seeking a little warmth.” said NAHS7s President Michael Cressler. “As a first stop of the circuit, it brings a great location at the Omni Resort. The teams love the quality of the surfaces, the referees provided by Back10 Pros (a circuit partner), all in a well run tourney."

The TROPICAL 7s has established itself as one of the biggest and top tournaments in North America that now attracts global attention. In only its 4th edition, the 2020 TROPICAL 7s will host over 125 teams representing at least 9 different countries, and will take place on 10-11 April in Orlando, Florida, USA..
