For US or Canadian high schools looking for an early September 2019 tour to Europe, the premier event is the Paris-operated Tournoi des Captiales, the prestigious 7-a-side tournament for U16 Boys and U18 Girls. This biannual event has welcomed teams from twenty countries since its inception in 2006.

In 2017, the Boys winners were the Manly Marlins from Sydney, and the Girls division was won by the Dutch national side.

The upcoming 2019 event next September 13, 14, and 15 is open to Boys born in 2004 and 2005, while Girls need to be born between October 1, 2001, and December 31, 2004. The tournament is open to any school, club, or national side that is affiliated with its home country rugby union.

The Tournament has the official backing of the French Rugby Federation, and, importantly, the City of Paris Region, in addition to local partners
