2012 Southern California Div II Third Place Finshers
The Kern County Rugby Club has been around since 1970. Our club has over 41 years of rich tradition in Southern California Rugby. We've established ourselves as a tough and aggressive club over the years. We want the community that we represent to learn that we are more than field warriors. We are involved with local high school programs, community outreach, and much more. We will continue this tradition for the 2013 season in Division II.
The 2012 regular season featured a roller coaster of many highs and a few lows as your Tuskers put together their best performances since the 2004 Division III championship run. With commanding wins over San Fernando, Huntington Beach, Santa Barbara, Eagle Rock and Riverside the boys put together impressive displays of powerful Kern rugby. At the tail end of the season the Tuskers efforts earned them a spot into the playoffs.
As USA rugby gears up for the 2016 Olympics so will KCRFC. We are excited for this journey as we aim to increase the presence of rugby in Kern County. With the right program we can turn some of Bakersfield's many great athletes into potential rugby Olympians.
The leadership of Kern County RFC is committed to bring rugby to Bakersfield in a big way from pre-K through all ages to finally men's club. Our vision is to have our own rugby fields and club house, a family environment, where all come and play, watch and just have fun.
