Year Round Beach Touch

We also play touch rugby (non-contact) on the beach Sunday mornings year-round from 11:00am-12:45pm south of Tower 27 which is just south of Ocean Park Blvd. Parking is in lot 5S, 2600 Barnard Way. (Parking: two-hours max in the $1/hr lot OR in the main $12 all-day beach parking lot.) This pickup game is all-ages (mostly 10 and up) and a great opportunity to hone your rugby ball-handling skills.  Please email youth@santamonicarugby.com in advance to see if there is a game scheduled.

Summer 7s

Each summer SCYR organizes various 7s tournaments in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego Counties hosted by different clubs.  2023 tournaments are scheduled for Saturdays June 3 – July 15.  SMRC participates in 2-3 of the closer tournaments based on team interest and coach availability. 7s practice usually begins in early May and there is a low fee associated to cover the tournament costs.

Volunteer Opportunities

We are a volunteer run organization.  We would not be a club without our volunteers. We need volunteers to help with large jobs like coaching, refereeing and team management as well as smaller jobs like field setup, promotions, ride sharing, raffle organization, gear and jersey laundering. The opportunities to volunteer are practically endless and can be tailored to meet your needs.

We also offer volunteer opportunities for your middle and high school youth who may need to earn school “Service Hours”.
