Womens 7's AKA the Lady Gators.
Alleygators is proud to have as part of their Club their very own Women's 7's team/Squad. Starting in 2014 with Selena Tranter (Highest Capped Wallaroo) as the coach the girls couldn't have asked for a better start. They played 22 games for the year, winning 16 of them which was a great way to kick it off. A couple of the girls also earning Qld Representative colours.
2015 with a larger squad they ran through 45 games with 36 wins which once again a pretty good season. We had ages varying from 16 to 45 so quite the spectrum. We even had Mum and daughter playing in a number of matches. Our Under 18's jumped into a couple of tournaments and came home with the Chocolates. the Noosa International and the Trans Tasman 7's. Well done girls and three more got to be wearing Qld colours by year end.
A beginner type Tournament was also started for our Open Ladies in 2015 which was named the Tranter Cup. Played between Coffs Harbour, Qld Uni Gatton and ourselves. This is an ideal starting point to get involved with Rugby 7's and for those that wish to progress to the larger tournaments atthe end of the year such as the Byron 7's or the Noosa International 7's it's a great stepping board.
2016 we are looking to expand again. With a new tournament for Age Grade girls we are at present putting together U16 and U14 teams as well. With it being such a popular sport at schools, this develops a pathway for these young athletes to move along. Three more teams are looking to join the Tranter Cup for the opens so a wonderful year to look forward to.
With Rugby 7's now an Olympic sport and the Australian Ladies Team running amok, it's time for all of you athletes to come and have a go.
Plenty of room for new Ladygators as well as our Gator Girls. Check out the Gallery, you may see some familiar faces.
