About Us

The San Diego Rugby Alumni Association is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that was created in 2019 in order to create a sustainable support mechanism of the USD Rugby program.  The goal of this organization is to supply funds required to elevate the team to a top NCAA Div.1A rugby team as well as give back to local youth rugby programs in the San Diego area. We operate within the guidelines of the University by working closely with the school administration, the alumni association, recreational sports and the athletics department.
