The Ruck Science team is thrilled to announce a partnership with one of the most unique rugby clubs in the U.S. The partnership, between the Stars Rugby 7s and Ruck Science LLC, is set to begin on May 20th, 2016.

What this means for Stars Rugby 7s

Stars Rugby 7s was founded in November 2013 with the mission of developing rugby 7s players in elite tournament settings. Teams compete in multiple high performance assemblies and international tournaments each year with a deep talent pool combining internationally capped 7s and XVs players, elite prospects, athletically gifted players new to the game of 7s, and crossover athletes. There is a major focus on recruiting players that lack regular exposure to high level coaching /playing opportunities due to geographic restraints and the lack of resources which varies greatly throughout the United States.

While mostly US based, the Stars rosters include players from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK and welcomes any players committed to the team and rugby camaraderie. Tours have included the Las Vegas Invitational, Vancouver 7s, Calgary Stampede 7s, Australia's Byron Bay 7s & Central Coast 7s, Tobago 7s, Serevi Rugbytown 7s, Atlanta 7s, NY 7s and Cape Fear 7s with numerous championship appearances and titles won. In fall of 2014 the program expanded to the XVs game with matches against Life University and the Capital Selects and additional fixtures slated for 2016 & 2017.

Stars players now have access to high-quality nutritional supplements and recovery tools specifically designed for rugby players, and can take advantage of the partnership to stock up on recovery products, nitrate powders and post-rugby. For Stars Rugby, this partnership represents an opportunity for the club to earn obligation-free revenue courtesy of our sponsorship program. It’s not just for players. Any time a player, member, friend or fan makes a purchase on ruckscience.com, you’ll be asked to enter the name of your rugby club at checkout. Please list “Stars” and we’ll contribute 10% on all purchases, 15% on all purchases over $150, and 20% on all purchases over $300.

What this means for Ruck Science

We’re thrilled to be working with a club as unique as Stars Rugby 7s. We’ll be doing everything we can to assist Stars with fundraising and player welfare programs in 2016 and beyond. We’d like to wish all the Stars players the best in their upcoming tours. Get after it! Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help out.
