2022-23 San Diego Mustangs Youth Rugby Season


Welcome to the 2022-2023 Rugby Season!  PLEASE READ this page in its entirety – there are a number of changes in the registration process for the upcoming season.

Unfortunately, due to changes in the USA Rugby and Southern California registration process for this season, this these changes will entail a three part registration process (Part #1 is the Mustangs Club Registration, Part #2 is the USA Rugby Registration and Part #3 is the Southern California Registration).  We are hoping to integrate these into a single registration in future seasons, but given the late roll out of these new systems by USA Rugby and SCYR, that was not possible for this season.

This registration is part #1 and will allow you to register your player with the club, provide contact information, electronically sign all consents, waivers and agreements, upload required documents and submit payment for the club fees.  Please read through each page carefully to ensure that all information is provided accurately. 

IMPORTANT: After completing the club registration, you will need to complete Part #2 at USA Rugby (payment of national body fees) and then Part #3 (uploading of birth certificate and passport style headshot into Southern California Youth Rugby site).

Links for each are provided at the end of registration.

The age cut off is the age on August 31, 2022 - so if you are say 11 years old August 31st and turn 12 on September 1st you are a U12 player not U14. 

Below is a guide for each age group:

  • U8 - 6 to 7 years old on August 31, 2022 (If you have a 5 year old interested player please contact the club for information)
  • U10 - 8 to 9 years old on August 31, 2022
  • U12 - 10 to 11 years old on August 31, 2022
  • U14 - 12 to 13 years old on August 31, 2022

To assist in the running of the Club we need Parents to volunteer for various Club and Team roles. The expectation is that volunteer time would be a minimum of 8 hours per registered player. You can either volunteer for a position in the drop down volunteer positions below or you can opt out of volunteering.  If you decide to opt-out, an additional $100 will be added to your registration fee.

Registration for the U16 and U18 teams as well as our girls teams is CLOSED and will OPEN in January.

The costs for the 2023 season are as follows (note that since this years registration process requires the separate registrations, we are not able to integrate the USA Rugby and SCYR fees into our registration costs as we have in previous seasons. Our costs have been adjusted accordingly):

U14 - Boys                                 $300 (+ $25 USA Rugby and + $70 SCYR fees)

U12 - Co-ed                               $250 (+ $25 USA Rugby and + $70 SCYR fees)

U10 - Co-ed                               $250 (+ $25 USA Rugby and + $70 SCYR fees)

U8 - FLAG                                   $200 (+ $25 USA Rugby and + $70 SCYR fees)


Note: SDYR offers a limited Scholarship program. If you wish to apply for a Scholarship please complete the form that you can obtain under the "About SCYR" tab.

2023 Season - SCYR is continuing with the weight limit structure from the previous seasons for the Co-ed divisions and a lighter and open weight divisions for U14.  For U10 - U14 players, you will need to upload weight information with your Southern California registration.

The Mustangs club registration process has 8 easy pages (ha ha) that lead you through the registration process progressively. Click on the registration button at the top of this page or the home page and follow the steps. 

IMPORTANT - At the end of this registration you will be provided links to the USA Rugby registration site and the Southern California Youth Rugby site.

At the USA Rugby site you will need to link your child to our club, sign a brief waiver document, and pay the national association annual fee of $25 for a player membership.
