Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I try rugby before registering?

You can try rugby at our two (2) free rugby clinics on October 16 & 30, 2022 from 3-4:30pm at Buena Vista Elementary in Carlsbad. Please email to complete the waivers prior to attending.

My child is small for his/her age, can he/she play down in a lower division?

It depends. Please email for more information.

Do you offer sibling discounts?

Because the club works to keep fees low for all players, we do not offer sibling discounts.

Do you offer financial aid?

We do offer financial aid for families in need. Financial aid funds are limited and is accepted/reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. The financial aid program is offered to those meeting the guidelines. You will need to provide proof of current income and comply with the Terms & Conditions. To request financial aid, email

Do you offer refunds?

Yes and no.
The league does not offer refunds so portion of the fee is non-refundable. As a club, we only refund a portion of the fees if you cancel before the first game minus the $25 administration cost AND minus the $60 cost for gear. If you cancel after the first game, we unfortunately cannot offer a refund.
