WELCOME!

Fall 2021 Season has concluded. The season was a success and a lot of fun. Thanks to all the coaches and volunteers that made the season happen, and to our players.

 

It is with a heavy heart that we must say "farewell" to the founders of our Kern Youth Rugby club: Coach Wicus, Michelle (our Director of Operations), and Coach O as their families move to new homes out of the area. All our best wishes to them and our deepest gratitude for how they have blessed us with the game of rugby and especially with this great rugby community . In their honor, the Clubman of the Year award will henceforth be named: the Postma Family Clubman of the Year Award.


 

 


ABOUT US
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

Our vision is to see rugby
, specifically 7’s, being played at all level in all parts of Kern County and establish our own geographic conference to minimize travel to the SoCal regions. We would then only travel for championship games at the end of the season with the possibility of some All-Star teams
 

OUR MISSION
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 tired we keep pressing on.
