Big school 7s in Paarl

Which u-17 rugby 7s team will still be standing come Saturday afternoon, following the grand finale of the Marius Schoeman Sports Festival?

It’s probably the world’s biggest schoolboy rugby 7s tournament, which takes place from 5 to 7 September at Paarl Gimnasium High School, and spans three age groups: u-12, u-15 and u-17.

Now in its third year, the tournament will be tougher than ever. The team that ends up landing the knockout blow will have been made of strong stuff.

The event brings together 1 300 children from a variety of backgrounds, and all corners of South Africa, to take part in the biggest school sports tournament of its kind in the world. Schoeman, whom the tournament is named after, is the High Performance Manager of the all-conquering South African 7s rugby team, the Blitzbokke, and the event is hosted at his alma mater.

This year’s event will also add Fast-5 Netball and Fast-5 Hockey to the 7s Rugby of last year.

Amdec’s sponsorship of the event enables teams from all over the country to participate in it. It gives youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to improve their basic skills and learn to compete in a spirit of fair play and sportsmanship, to make friends that last a lifetime and gain invaluable life experience.

The tournament’s top players are in line for selection to play in the Dubai 7s School Tournament later this year.

It’s one of the reasons the Amdec Group has committed itself to the tournament for the long haul.
