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!

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!

The recipients of the Surfer’s Scholarship this year are Alana “Banana” Lewis and Kyla “Cubbi” Roth. They both exemplify service to the community through their involvement with the club or the rugby community at large.
Alana has really stepped up her involvement since joining the club in 2011. This past year she has Co-Chaired the Try-On Rugby event at Champagne Classic, has volunteered as the Rookie Coordinator, and is also applying for grants from various foundations on behalf of the SD Surfers club.
Kyla just recently joined our club, but has been involved in SoCal rugby for a number of years. Prior to moving to San Diego, she coached the Scottsdale Wolves U-8 coed touch, U-12 coed touch, and U-14 boys tackle. She is currently looking for a team to coach in San Diego. Congratulations to the scholarship winners, and we look forward to next years applications.
Banana will receive a donation of two team flights and Cubbi will receive one team flight.
Thank you to our Alumni anonymous donor for making these awards possible!
