Summer Season Description

Sevens intro

Sevens is a fast paced variation of regular rugby played with only seven players on a side for seven minutes per half. It is an Olympic sport. Matches are held tournament style and there are normally around three short games per team.

Season overview

First practice starts mid May and the last tournament takes place in the end of July. 

Summer is also a time for family vacations so we understand that players will be gone for different periods during the summer season. Just let your coach know so he/she can plan. 


  • WHEN: Tuesdays and Thursdays (older age groups may also practice on Wednesdays)
  • WHERE: Encinitas Community Park or Cardiff Sports Park
  • TIME: After 5 pm, will depend on team
