International Rugby brings Cultures and Customs to Local Schools

LAS VEGAS - International Rugby in Las Vegas went beyond the recent matches at Sam Boyd Stadium, with Rugby teams also visiting local schools for students to learn cultures and customs.

The USA Sevens International Rugby Tournament, which first came to Sam Boyd in 2010, with just over 20,000 in attendance, hosted 84,000 fans last year, and this year was another packed house!

Las Vegas showed our love of Rugby with schools participating in "Adopt A Country Program" where students study international cultures, as they welcome teams to their schools.

We featured the Olympic Gold Medal team from Fiji visiting Paradise Elementary School, where they were greeted with a festive feel at an enthusiastic pep-rally! There was an autograph signing, rugby clinics, a Q and A with student reporters, and the school was decorated to honor Fiji, and its culture, as well as a wall of posters held high by spirited students.....all in "What's Cool at School."
