2016 Welcome Week is Here!


The Los Angeles Rebellion RFC's Welcome Week runs from Friday October 7 - Saturday October 15. If you've had interest in joining the team, a fondness for occasionally bone-crunching sports, or are just curious about the game of rugby - now is your chance to get to know the team, toss around some balls, and see what we're all about!

ALL EVENTS ARE OPEN TO EVERYONE IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA. As the only all-inclusive rugby team in Los Angeles, we welcome ALL players and supporters regardless of sexual identity, age, ethnicity/race, religious preference, body type, fitness level or experience. Even if you've never played a day in your life, you'll be amazed what you can accomplish over the season, and the new family you'll gain in the process.
