SEVENS RUGBY IN THE USA
Due to its international popularity, 7s rugby was voted into the Summer Olympic Games for 2016 and 2020. In 7s, seven-a-side teams compete in seven-minute halves and each team is allowed three substitutions. The 7s player must be both mentally and physically disciplined. Since 7s is played on the same-sized field as 15s, there is more room to run. This results in a fast-paced match that allows for high-scoring games. The 7s athlete must train and develop different skills than a 15s player and be able to make the right decisions under pressure.
