30th Cape Cod Sevens Tournament
While BWRFC sent a competitive team to Saratoga 7s, the bulk of the team cheered from the Cape while hosting the 30th Annual Cape Cod Sevens Tournament. This year’s holiday-themed fun tournament was a wild success for competitive, social, collegiate and men’s competitors alike – as it was the first time that BWRFC welcomed men’s teams into the historic tournament.

Northeast Olympic Development Academy Welcomes Five BWRFC Players to their Roster
In its first year of existence for female athletes, the Northeast Olympic Development Academy (ODA) has asked five BWRFC players to join the roster of this year-round olympic 7s training program. According to the website: ”The purpose of the ODA is to identify, develop and prepare Sevens rugby players with the intention of placing ambitious athletes onto the USA [Women's] National team and the 2016 USA Olympic team. The ODA will provide athletes with top level coaching, physical preparation, and playing competition to accelerate their personal development as Sevens players in line with current USA Eagles High Performance criteria.” We’re so proud of our players and are joined by the whole Boston Women’s family in cheering their accomplishments as they work to grow, develop and compete at the highest levels.
Congratulations BWRFC Players:
