Highlights of the 2011 Lakefront 7s.
In 2010, the Lakefront 7s was honored to be included in Championship Cup Series (CCS) organized across the country by USA Sevens LLC
In the process of complying with CCS specifications, we made significant improvements in the quality of our event and were fortunate to work closely with USA Sevens staff as well as other elite rugby sevens tournaments across the country.

Each year, USA Rugby hosts National Championship events around the country, including the Club 7s Championship. For example, the 2011 Men’s Club 7s Championship will be held on August 20-21 at Rocca Field in San Francisco.
