The NAI7s is looking to become the Rosslyn Park 7s of North America.

In those 13-14 years, kids grow at incredibly different rates. Some stay small and sprout in later years while some look like John Cenna at age 14. In an effort to make this tournament the best possible experience for the players, we are capping the weight at 185lbs. There will be a weigh in prior to the start of the tournament to make sure all kids are within the weight, and age, limit. To put it is perspective if it seems small, I am 6'1" and was 186lbs coming out of boot camp a lean mean fighting machine. To have a body like that and the mind of a 14 year old can be a dangerous thing.
