History

Unveiling-of-bus-and-team1-2
Youth rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. By 2016 rugby will be an Olympic sport and who knows, there may be a future Olympian amongst our Club right now.
The goals of the Rugby Union Club “Rhinos” are to provide all youth an opportunity to learn and participate in the game of rugby; instill ideals of health, citizenship, character and sportsmanship; teach youth the culture and skills of rugby; raise the level of youth rugby in the United States to international levels; and build an organization where families participate in the operations and contribute to the growth of the game of rugby.
These goals are achieved through the creation of a safe and organized environment managed by educated and trained coaches and administrators that have the welfare of each youth participant at heart.
We have four divisions in our club – U8, U10, U12, and U14. We offer both non-contact and contact rugby depending on the age of your child. Each age grade is coached by USA Rugby registered coaches with much experience, including many who have played at the international level around the world.
The Rugby Union Club is a registered club with USA Rugby and Southern California Youth Rugby. We are also a partner of the Positive Coaching Alliance.
