TTP Trials are for athletes that are exceptional members of their own sport but are new to rugby. Skills from many other sports are valuable to success in rugby including power, pace, vision, handling, contact, grappling, footwork, and more. Athletes from track, football, soccer, basketball, volleyball wrestling, hockey, softball, lacrosse, baseball, cheer and others often find great success in rugby. PR7s and USA Rugby invite stand out athletes from other sports to attend a TTP trial to learn more about rugby sevens and enter the pathway for participation in professional sevens, national team selection, and future Olympics and World Cups. Athletes must be aged 18 by October 1, 2021 to participate.
