(A)U16 Boys 7s CRU U15, NRU U15 & CRU U18 IN ELITE TOURNEY at Bellwether 7s
Oct 15 @ 9:00 am – 2:30 pm

Location: Brantford Harlequins – Main / Back (see schedule in description)
There are a couple of “Elite” level tournaments during the 7’s season where participation was possible. We are confirmed for Crusaders u15 & NRU u15. In addition Crusaders has a u18 team registered and some of our u16 may be requested to play. See coaches and watch your emails for more info.

=============================================

On behalf of the Bellwether 7s committee, we welcome you all to the 2022 Bellwether 7s tournament presented by the Q-META Group. We see many familiar names and clubs at this year’s event, but we also see quite a few new names. We cannot wait to host you all this weekend.

As we did for the 2019 event, we will be using Google Sheets for our schedule, and there will be live updates on there, so please refer to the Google Sheet link provided below, and feel free to send it to parents on the weekend. Our field marshalls and tournament HQ are happy to help people allocate fields, but due to the dynamics of the event, we feel a live-updated tournament schedule is even more efficient at getting clubs the information they need. Please note that you will need to navigate the tabs to see the schedule and the points for each day/division. All divisions are colour-coded.

Schedule: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Nu7N6nsENnn0MrC3sUIaVgboYsH7jbMiIGCYsJbFILE/edit?usp=sharing

We will have the Fo Cheezy Food Truck returning this year, and a new food truck: The Green Machine. Fo Cheezy will be serving Grilled Cheese sandwiches and combos, while the green machine will be servings soup/chili, wraps and smoothies. As well, the Brantford Harlequins will be serving breakfast in the club house, for purchase.

An athletes’ tent is available, and we ask that this space be reserved for both the athletes and coaches only.

NEW THIS YEAR: We will have custom 2022 Bellwether 7s shirts available for purchase at the tournament. These shirts are printed on site, and $5 from every purchase goes to the Brantford Harlequins Rugby Club.

Tournament Regulations:
Rankings: three points are allocated for a win, two for a draw and one for a loss. The Rugby Ontario 7s Series rules for tie breakers will be used if needed.
Key Items:
1. Games will start on time: on the hour, 20 after the hour and 20 to the hour.
2. All competition disputes must be addressed to Dale Hall during the tournament.
3. Please have your team ready to start their fixture five minutes before kick off. Time permitting, games will start five minutes prior to their scheduled time.
4. Conversions are taken normally, NOT in the in-goal area. A ball will be ready at half for the restart.
5. Referees are sole judge of score and time.
Playoff Rounds: We are using 7-a-side law variations for extra time. First to score any points in extra time will be declared the winner of the match.
Match Official Interaction: We ask that the coaches only approach a match official while the match official is between games. At half time, we ask that the coaches focus on their athletes, and the match official focus on their preparation for the second half. Any feedback in regards to Match Officials, or appointments will be directed towards Dale Hall.
Yellow/Red Card Policy: Yellow cards do not accumulate throughout the day. If a player receives a red card for any infringements covered under Law 9.11 to Law 9.26, they will be immediately ejected from the tournament. If a player receives a red card for any other reason, a meeting will take place immediately following the game, in the clubhouse between the player, their coach and Dale Hall.

If you have any questions please contact us immediately.

Cheers,
Dale Hall, CFP on behalf of the Bellwether 7s committee and the Brantford Harlequins RFC – (Arrival Time: 8:15 AM (Eastern Time (US & Canada)))
