The Desert Southwest Athletic Club (DSWAC) is a newly formed LLC organized and led by a group of current and alumni members of the Tempe Rugby Club. The Mission of the DSWAC is to organize, sponsor and host seasonal athletic events in the State of Arizona for the purpose of raising investment capital necessary to support and recognize amateur athletic organizations and their respective sports. As the event sponsor, it is our responsibility to coordinate and manage all aspects of event planning for the Tempe Sizzling 7s Rugby Invitational and Qualifier in June each year, as well as the Devil’s Rugby Cup (formally Wild West Rugby Fest) the first week of December each year. We welcome feedback leading up to, during, and following the Sizzling 7s event. Whether you’re a player, coach, spectator, referee, trainer, or vendor, it is our objective to deliver an exceptional rugby sevens experience.
