This year marks the 40th anniversary of the CanAm Rugby Tournament in Saranac Lake/Lake Placid, the largest rugby tournament in the western hemisphere. Beginning in 1973, the tourney has expanded to include over 100 teams annually, added brackets for women, college, social sides, and premier clubs, and provided age brackets for the most populated levels (including an over 60’s group!). However, as part of the 40th anniversary weekend, the CanAm Organizing Committee is proud to announce the debut of its Quad Rugby bracket.
The USA Women’s U-20 National Team is holding a week long training camp in Lake Placid this week, and will be playing two exhibition games as part of the CanAm Rugby Tournament. They will kick off the CanAm Tournament on Thursday July 26 with a game at 6pm at the Ken Wilson Field at Petrova School in Saranac Lake, and will follow it with a second game at the conclusion of the championship games in Bloomingdale on Sunday.
