Los Angeles Youth Rugby Club (LAYRC)

Welcome to the 2012-2013 Los Angeles Youth Rugby Club (LAYRC)

LAYRC (previously Manhattan Beach Tykes Rugby) is a founding member of SoCal Youth Rugby, and a member of the SoCal Rugby Football Union and USA Rugby.  We are also associated with the Los Angeles Rugby Club, who serves as our Senior Affiliate and Sponsorsing club.

The Club hosts non-contact (NCR) rugby for U8 and full contact (FCR) rugby for U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 age groups. A player's age is determined as of September 1, 2012.

LA Youth Rugby Club (LAYRC) is based in Manhattan Beach but open to all interested youth rugby players (both boys and girls) from the Beach Cities/South Bay areas.  Last year, our U8/10/12/14 teams are comprised of more than 100 kids from Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Hawthorne, Torrance and Lawndale.  Our U14 team advanced to the Southern California quarter finals and our U12 team reached the semi finals.

Our season begins in January 2013, with matches/tournaments starting 2/2/2013 thru the end of April.  New players are welcome to come out and join us anytime.

We are always looking for new players to come and join our growing club, and learn the game of Rugby. Each year, we find that more than half of our players are new to the game, and all return to play the next season. Rugby is a very exciting, fast-paced and addicting game. And the best thing about it is ..... everybody gets to carry the ball!
