who we are and what we’re all about
The Ventura County Rugby Football Club (VCRFC) was formed in 2009 by residents who were looking to promote athletic competition and increase awareness for the exciting game of rugby. Many of the founding players are alumni of local high schools and universities and have a vested interest in the community. We want players of all ability levels to come out and become members of the Outlaws Rugby Club. We encourage personal growth and responsibility from all of our members. We strive to be the best on and off the field. Our goal is to be champions while on the pitch and upstanding citizens when in the community. VCRFC is a non-profit organization that promotes athletic competition as well as civic pride. We strive to represent ourselves and our community with the utmost respect. Our Club is proud to be partnered with Channel Islands Youth Rugby and California Lutheran University to help promote rugby across age and gender lines.
We play teams between San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Kern County. Many of our club members are alumni of winning college and men’s programs throughout Southern California and we bring that winning tradition to Outlaw Rugby.
In the 2009-2010 season VCRFC finished with an undefeated regular season, and was nominated as the best rugby club in Southern California for their spirit on and off the field of play.
In the 2010-2011 season VCRFC was promoted to division three, finished second in Southern California and advanced to the national championships as the #4 seed in the Western United States. Following this incredible season, VCRFC was promoted a second year in a row making the jump to division 2 with the club only being two years old!
In the 2011-2012 season VCRFC was promoted to division two and finish the season in 2nd place with a regular season record of 8-1.
The ultimate goal of our club is to become a dominant force in Southern California Rugby. Winning matches is only one component of Ventura County Rugby. Off the pitch we look to build positive relationships with local business and community organizations. We aspire to be a positive force in the community and spread the love of rugby throughout the County. The Outlaws are open to all men 18+. No experience necessary! We encourage players of all ability levels to come out and join our squad. We emphasize physical fitness and a strong understanding of the fundamentals of rugby. We are always looking for the opportunity to meet new teammates. If you or anyone you know would be interested in playing please come check out one of our practices or contact one of our officers.
As we look to grow and expand our club we need your support. Like rugby players everywhere, the Club members are professionals and students from around the area who come together to compete and play the sport of rugby. Since rugby is still an amateur sport in the U.S. most of our players pay for much of their own equipment and travel and must be ambassadors for their club and the game of rugby. Only through your generous contributions are we able to field a competitive squad that will make Ventura County proud! Please take a look at the different sponsorship or donor packages that Ventura County Rugby offers. All sponsorship packages directly maintain the Club and its season. Thanks again for your support and GO OUTLAWS!
