The newly-formed Southern California Interscholastic Rugby Federation (SCIRF) kicks off December 8.
Just before the Christmas break, the Southern California Boys HS leagues get a league game in.
Not since 2009, when Petco Park last hosted the USA 7s tournament, has the San Diego Padres' stadium seen an influx of rugby players through its gates. On Sunday, July 26, the Padres sponsored Rugby Day during the team's final game against the Miami Marlins. It was a good day for the home team – Padres won 3-2 to finish 3-1 in the series – but even more so for the local SoCal rugby clubs.
