Score on the Shore is a 7’s tournament on the beach in Galveston, TX. While 15’s (15 players on the field) is normally played in the fall, 7’s (7 players on the field) is normally played in the summer. 7’s is a faster-paced game, with only 7-minute halves. Score on the Shore is even more exciting as it is on the beach. The pitch (field) is smaller, but players must score in the hula hoops if they want full points (5 try points + 2 conversion points). Teams are also encouraged to dress-up for our Spirit Contest.
This year’s event will be pirate themed.

Due to the high tourist numbers that flock to Galveston Island during the summer, we are unable to obtain courtesy blocks with any hotels. There are tons of hotels and Airbnb’s on the island, so wherever is best for each team, we will leave it up to you. A few hotels we recommend:
The Commodore on the Beach – on the beach, on seawall ~ $140/night
3618 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550
Holiday Inn Resort – on the beach, on seawall ~ $200/night
5002 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, Texas 77551
Everyone’s favorite part! We will be attending 4 Galveston Bars in the Strand district, all of which are going to be giving happy hour prices to all ruggers and accompaniment (as long as they are wearing the tourney shirt) Places, times etc will be on the shirt as well and announced shortly.
