High School

Earning the 2010 Program of the Year from Rugby Magazine, the Varsity Warriors claimed the Southern California High School Championship in 2011 with the JV squad taking second place in the championship. In 2011, Rugby Magazine again awarded the program the distinction of 2011 Program of the Year. 2012 saw the Junior Varsity squad defeating Wilson in an overtime semi-​final, only to take second place to Cathedral Catholic in the championship. Our Varsity crew ran with a single loss in 2013, leading into a devastating quarter-​final loss to Wilson in the championships. In 2015, the Varsity squad earned  the Titan Shield and were crowned the SoCal single school HS Champions.

Our players represent Fall­brook High School during the winter rugby season. Players compete for positions on the Varsity and Junior Varsity squads based on ability, dedication and overall sportsmanship. Off the field, the Warriors are always hospitable to visiting players and coaches, displaying a level of sportsmanship that does the whole town proud.
