Orca Youth Rugby Club - Ventura County

The Orca Youth Rugby Club has teams for Boys and Girls ages 11-18 and for all skill levels. We play teams between San Diego and San Luis Obispo. Many of our club members are current athletes at local schools and high schools who also compete in multiple sports. The ultimate goal of our club is to promote and teach the sport of rugby and become a dominant force in Southern California Rugby. Off the pitch we look to build positive relationships with local business and community organizations. We aspire to be a positive force in the community and spread the love of rugby throughout the County. No experience necessary! We encourage players of all ability levels to come out and join our squad. We emphasize physical fitness and a strong understanding of the fundamentals of rugby. We are always looking for the opportunity to meet new teammates.

If you love American football, you will love rugby because rugby has MORE of what makes football fun: more tackling, more passing, more running, more juking, more teamwork, more thinking, more friends, and more ball carrying.  Rugby also has LESS than American football:  less bench time, less specialization, less equipment, less expense ($190 for everything all season), less waiting and less substitution.

Rugby season (January-April) does NOT conflict with football; it is GREAT off-season practice! NO ONE RIDES THE BENCH -- NO RUGBY EXPERIENCE EXPECTED!

Orca Rugby emphasizes SAFETY AND FUN.  Orca Rugby is ALL volunteer; NO ONE is paid. Orca Rugby has teams for 11-18 year olds.  Orca Rugby limits team size; everyone plays. Practices are Tuesday and Thursday 6-8 pm, Games on Saturday.  Get more info and register online now at www.venturacountyrugbyclub.com.
