Summer 7s!
Summer 7s will immediately follow the All-Star program. You can expect practices twice a week.
Practice information will be shared in the coming weeks. The 6 sanctioned tournaments are listed on our program’s website.  The total cost to all returning Dragons is $50 for the Summer 7s season. That fee includes a 7s jersey and tournament entry.  Any players that would like to join our program for the Summer 7s session, the fee is $150.  Unfortunately, we have to completely register new players as if they were playing the entire regular season which makes the fee a bit steep.

Go Dragons!
