Summer Sevens!!

Summer is upon us which means it’s time for SUMMER 7s SEASON!!

DC Furies at 2010 Sevens Nationals

Whether you are brand new to rugby, brand new to 7s, or a seasoned veteran, all are welcome and encouraged to play 7s with the Furies!! We are very excited for the season to start – we are going to have a ton of fun, improve our fitness and skills, and play some great rugby!

The Furies 7s team will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7pm at PAC field, located at 15th and Independence, SW, Washington D.C. The closest metro line is Smithsonian (Blue/Orange), which is just a couple blocks away.

In each of the tournaments we participate in this summer, the Furies will field at least one competitive side and 1-2 developmental or social sides, and we have two great coaches to help us achieve our rugby goals.  Sue Parker will be the Furies head 7s coach again this summer. For those of you new to the Furies, Sue was our head 7s coach last summer, an assistant coach with the Furies 15s last fall, and currently coaches the Naval Academy Women’s Rugby program. She also previously coached the USA 7s Women’s National Team. She is a great coach and will definitely raise our level of play. Dre Khoury will be the Assistant Coach and will particularly focus on the newer and developmental players. Dre has played with the Furies for over 10 years, and has experience coaching the MARFU Women’s 15s Senior side, Chesapeake Women, and has guest coached for several college teams in the area – and the Furies! We are very lucky to have such great and dedicated coaches this summer.
