Air Force take Men’s Competitive championship in Lakefront 7s debut

Champions MC 2021

It’s always exciting to perform well when you debut at a sevens event. And so it was for Air Force A, though success was hard fought at every stage.

In pool play, Air Force A met firm opposition. They dropped a match to the Kings and went 2-1-0 after 3 matches. The tie-break on points for put Air Force A and MRFC through to the semi-final as seeds 2 and 3.

In pool B, the Celtics were the only team with a perfect record and took the first seed. Gorilla Rugby out of Texas, another debutant, finished as the 4th seed with points for again needed to tie-break with the other 2-1-0 teams from pool A.

Air Force and Celtics both eked out 1-try margins in the semifinals to advance to the final. After a fierce battle, Air Force A appeared to have the fitness to carry them past the Celtics for the Championship.

The streamlined feedback survey is now open for the 2021 Lakefront 7s.

Referee Tmo

Like most summer rugby events in America, TV cameras are nowhere to be found at the Lakefront 7s. That makes is difficult for us to evaluate the event.

Instead, we invite participants to give us feedback on the things that went right as well as those that did not. We use the survey results to improve future events. Despite the pandemic-related challenges this year, we are keen to hear your feedback this year. So please complete the survey below before July 9, 2021.

Note that we’ve streamlined the survey this year in an effort to improve the response rate. However, you may include detailed ratings as well if you prefer (see below).


2021 schedule now available.

2021 Schedule Preview V1

The schedule for the 38th annual Lakefront 7s is now available.

As always, teams must check-in and submit their signed waiver 1 hr before their first match (or better yet, 1 hr before the divisional start times).

Please note that barring any errors, the schedule is now finalized. If any team fails to appear for a match, a forfeit scored at 28-0 will be awarded to the team that does appear. The schedule will then continue as shown above.


After the rugby, join us at Brewski’s for the official after party.

After Party

After a hot day of summer rugby, come on down to Brewski’s Sports Club (304 N 76th St, Milwaukee) for the Summer Beer Bust, the official after party.

For just $10 you get bottomless beer while hanging out with ruggers from all over. Hosted by our good friends the Milwaukee Scylla RFC, you’ll have a great time.

Please note that the Summer Beer Bust is restricted to those 21 years of age and older.


Pools and start-times assigned for sold-out summer sevens rugby tournament

2021 Teams Overview

We could not be more thrilled to report that the 2021 Lakefront 7s has sold out!

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have the trust and support of everyone in the rugby community who stuck with us over the last 18 months as we tried to negotiate all the challenges a pandemic brings to a public, full-contact event. There has been a lot of uncertainty over the last few weeks in particular and so your faith in us and the event is truly humbling.

The organizing team has been hard at work putting the finishing touches on our preparations and today we can share the teams and pools for all divisions, as well as the disisional start times.

Note that teams must present their signed waiver at the checking table 1 hour before your division begins.


County permit approved!! Waitlist remains open for most divisions.

Permit Approved

Today we received the truly wonderful news that our permit to use Veterans Park has been approved. This was the final hurdle and now we can say that the 2021 Lakefront 7s is most definitely going forward! We can’t wait to host you all on June 26!

A few spots remain for teams in the Women’s Super-Social, High School and HIPPOs divisions. And the waitlist is open for the other divisions. Please do continue to sign up if you can attend.

We’ll have some more information on the event heading into next week, but for now be sure to clear your calendars, pack your sunscreen and cleats and get ready for a great day of rugby!

While awaiting approval of our permit application from Milwaukee County Parks for the use of our venue (Veterans Park), we announced last month that two dates had been reserved for the 2021 Lakefront 7s. Specifically, the preferred date of June 26th and the backup date of August 21st.

Since then, the CDC has announced that fully vaccinated people can return to normal activities and Milwaukee County has decided to lift their mask mandate on June 1st.

Additionally, Milwaukee County Parks has shared with us their guidance around reopening outdoor sports events such as walks and runs. They have also accepted our reopening plan in support of our permit application for Veterans Park.

With these developments in mind, the Lakefront 7s organizing committee has decided to forego the alternate date in August and put all our efforts into holding the event as planned on June 26, 2021. In other words, we are putting all our balls in one June basket!

We are hoping to receive feedback on our reopening plan by June 4. If accepted, we would expect the permitting process to follow shortly thereafter.
