Rally for Rugby 7's
Join us for a Texas-sized send-off rally as the Women's Rugby 7's Olympic team leave for Rio. We will gather around the team buses that will transport them to the airport.
Everyone is encouraged to bring USA and Lone Star flags. Wear your USA Rugby jersey or t-shirt. Make posters showing your encouragement, bring noise makers and items (sharpies) for autographs. The athletes will be happy to pose for selfies. Be sure to bring the kids!
Be in the vicinity of the HIlton Americas Hotel no later than 5:15 p.m. Texas born Jillion Potter is on the team; St. Thomas HS alum Andrew Locke is an assistant coach.
Rugby in the Olympics is truly historic and this is our opportunity as the Houston Rugby Community to show our athletes and USA Rugby that we have been -- a remain -- the go-to city for national teams and events.
Houston Area Rugby Club will be hosting a post-rally social at Lucky's Pub immediately after the rally.
