History

The oldest club in SCRFU is the Eagle Rock Athletic Club (founded in 1937). The second oldest is the LARC (formed in 1958 as Universities RFC, before changing their name to Los Angeles Rugby Club in 1966).[2]

During the late-1960s and early-1970s, UCLA was the dominant college team in SCRFU, under the coaching of Dennis Storer, later the first Eagles Coach when USA Rugby was formed in 1975. The Santa Monica RFC became the dominant men's team in SCRFU throughout the mid-1970s and early-1980s.[3]
