Thank you for your loyal dedication, unwavering commitment, significant contributions to our goals and support of our mission statement.


Kern Youth Rugby (KYR) was born in 2014. Our aim is to build community through rugby. We are passionate about rugby, kids and serving our community. Our Motto is Building Community Through Rugby. Our Core values are: RESPECT OTHERS, BE HUMBLE & HAVE COURAGE.  


Our vision is to see rugby
 being played at all ages throughout Bakersfield and compete in the Southern California Youth Region.

RESPECT OTHERS:  Respect your team, your coaches, your refs, your opponents, your community, and the game of rugby. We are all from diverse backgrounds, have different issues, and have different personalities. Respect that.
BE HUMBLE:  Be humble at all times, in every situation.

HAVE COURAGE:  We signed up to be part of this team. That means when we get hurt we get up. When we don’t feel like practice we get up and get here. When we feel tired we keep pressing on.
