May 9th 7’s Clinic!!!

7s clinic

Morning session: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Afternoon session: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
(times subject to change based on number of participants)

The current Women’s 7s National Champions San Diego Surfers are partnering with the UC San Diego Women’s Team to host a Women’s 7s Rugby Clinic on May 9. The morning session will include 7s skills and drills, and the afternoon will feature tournament style 7s games. Surfers coaches and players will lead the clinic and participate in player development throughout the day. This clinic is open to any women’s rugby players age 18 and up (high school, college, women’s). Please register as an individual ($25) or team ($200) here:

Since there are very few collegiate women’s sevens sides up and running in the SoCal area, we thought this type of introductory event combined with scrimmages would be a great learning and development opportunity for all. The Surfers will continue to feature similar events in the future with hopes of growing the sport of 7s to collegiate and other developing players in the San Diego and Southern California region.

We would love to have you and your team attend! Please forward this information on to your team and any others in your area that may be interested!

Thanks and hope to see you May 9!

Surfers Win Scrimmage Vs. Belmont- Long Beach, Feb 7th

Belmont scrimmage

Gearing up to play in our own Champagne Classic, SD Surfers traveled up to Long Beach this past Sunday for a friendly Scrimmage against Belmont Shore Women’s Rugby D1.  It was a wonderful day of rugby where both teams got the opportunity to have players try out new positions.  Surfers emerged victorious in a 33-3 final.

Many thanks to Belmont Shore Women’s Rugby for being such gracious hosts and providing a wonderful social at Panama Joe’s.  Special thanks to Kara Mathews of the Surfers for organizing and driving a team van up to Long Beach!

Congrats to Women of the Match voted by both Belmont and Surfers – Leilani, Claire, and Crush!
