Our club began in 1963 as an extension of the California State University Northridge Rugby Club. Generations of players, coaches, and supporters have helped mold the club into more than a rugby team. The bonds made throughout the years have turned into lifelong friendships that transcend the sport. The impact of our members on our community have made the San Fernando Valley Rugby name synonymous with charity, outreach, and tolerance.

Our Club Today
SFV Rugby competes in the Southern California Rugby Football Union (SCRFU) and participating in the USA Rugby National Club Tournaments. We are proud to field teams in multiple divisions: Men’s Second Division, Women’s First Division, and Youth 16U and 18U. We hold training sessions for all teams twice weekly, year-round, in preparation for both 15’s and 7’s variations of the sport. Our players’ backgrounds are as diverse as our community. We have players who discovered the sport domestically as well as others who have fostered their love of the game in their home countries. We are honored to be a culturally diverse club, as well as a Deaf friendly organization with Deaf team members. We are a true embodiment of the American motto, E. Pluribus Unum (out of many, one).
Our mission is the development of rugby players from all walks of life in the San Fernando Valley and surrounding communities. One of our primary goals is to proliferate the love of the game with a young generation through the expansion of our youth program, and to instill upon them the club’s core values while preparing them with the skills to help them realize their greatest potential in rugby and life.
