Rugby is a game all about teamwork and support. To go forward, you must go backwards.

Don’t play for what your jersey says on the back, play for what it says on the front.

Coaching is one of them the most important and impactful elements of the youth game. Coaches develop the foundation of teamwork, build individual confidence and skills, and create memories for players and families alike. Many coaches are past youth, high school or collegiate players and choose to stay in around the game because of the positive affect it continues to provide them.


Southern California Youth Rugby believes firmly in both sides of the match – the athletes AND the officiating. We teach youth early about respect for the game and the referees. It is imperative all understand the rules of the game in order to uphold safety.
