Back Bay Youth Rugby was established in the fall of 2004 with a few young kids that were interested in playing the sport of rugby. At our first practice we had seven players. By our first match we had 14 players and played without one player. Since that first game, a Back Bay victory, we have grown from a 14 player team to over 200 boys and girls with many championship teams and players graduating to play at the international level for the US Eagles.
We are now competing in all youth divisions in Southern California from U8 to High School boys and girls. We draw players from Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Santa Ana and other cities within Orange County.
We have over 20 coaches on staff to overlook and teach these boys and girls to become solid ruggers and people of solid character. Many of our coaches have competed at high levels of rugby in Austraila, New Zealand, England, Wales and the United States. They are all certified by USA Rugby, background checked and trained in the latest coaching and safety techniques.
Rugby is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the USA. We are very glad to be a part of this youth movement and welcome you to the team. If you would like more information then don't hesitate to contact us via e-mail. Any ability, any size… no worries as we will teach new players everything they need to know in a great learning environment.
