San Diego Youth Rugby Mustangs Club registration still open for U12 and U14 levels

Rugby season is just around the corner, with matches beginning in January.  The San Diego Youth Rugby Mustangs Club, which plays and practices in Carmel Valley, is keeping registration open for the U12 and U14 levels only.

The Mustangs are the most successful Rugby Club in San Diego County.  The U19 Mustangs are the reining Southern California Champions, while theTorrey Pines Rugby Varsity — managed by the Mustangs — are undefeated on the pitch over the past two years.  Last year’s Torrey Pines Junior Varsity won the Southern California Championship, while the up-and-coming U8 team won the prestigious Back Bay Tournament.  Two members of the U19 Mustangs were invited to play on the USA national team last season.

Rugby 7’s (the seven-man version of the sport) will be an Olympic medal event in the 2016 Olympics in Sao Paolo.  The USA Eagles train year-round at the Chula Vista Olympic Center, while 31 schools and clubs in Southern California (15 in San Diego County) are growing the sport in anticipation of becoming a new CIF High School sport.  San Diego is a Rugby hotbed.

If you have an active young boy, or a boy you want to be active, who likes camaraderie and grass stains, and might be a future Olympian, or just looking for some excitement, then consider Rugby.   At the U12 and U14 level, the emphasis is on fun, safety and learning the sport.  Travel is typically only within San Diego County.  The Mustangs play Saturday’s at Carmel Valley Middle School, and practice twice locally during the week.  All Mustangs head coaches are certified by USA Rugby.
