Teams are ready to participate on the 10th edition of the North American Underwater Rugby Tournament, the weekend of May 30, 31st in Montreal, Canada, hosted by Club Camo.
Five teams from Canada and the US will participate on this tournament. Club Camo from Montreal as the host team, Toronto UWR and Club Liberation from Ontario, a mixed team from Quincy (MA) and the East Haven Makos (CT) and the NJ Hammerheads from Newark, New Jersey as current and defending champions.
This is the first time two teams from Ontario will participate on the North American tournament outside of their hometown as a good sign of growth. The host team Camo will be a trong contender and candidate to win the championship as most of his players are part of team Canada that will participate this summer on the World Championships in Colombia. Club Camo will try to regain the championship after two runner up places after the NJ Hammerheads on the last tournaments. Players from Quincy UWR and the East Haven Makos are participating as a mixed team just as the past tournament on which they got the third place. The NJ Hammerheads will try to maintain their championship title that they got during the last two NA UWR tournaments in Toronto and Newark.
This tournament will also serve as the last competition and preparation event for teams Canada (men) and USA (men and women) before the World Championships. The following North American UW Rugby tournament is scheduled on October 17-18, 2015 in Brantford, Ontario.
