Please note:

Our Kaupapa challenges the traditional binary models of cisgendered sport, however Rugby 7s, as a contact and collision sport, remains one code where additional information and resource must be considered to allow for a safe and inclusive competition. Therefore, the Rugby 7s registration at the Rainbow Games is therefore a little bit different and requires information on playing experience to allow us to move forward with operational planning to deliver Rugby 7s most inclusive competition in Aotearoa New Zealand to date. This is solely for the purpose of safeguarding, safety and wellbeing of all participants.

Please note: Dependent on the information submitted, it is possible that Rainbow Games and New Zealand Rugby will need to collect more information from participants to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants. For this reason, the closing date of the rugby 7s competition will be Friday 8th December to allow time for effective planning.

The health and safety of participants is paramount, and as a contact and collision sport, both parties understand that additional considerations must be taken. As part of the commitment, New Zealand Rugby will be creating a bespoke risk management plan based on the playing experience of entrants.
