Josh Williams

President & Head Coach U18s

I was one of the founders of Carlsbad Thunder Rugby back in 2011. Originally we were just u8's and u10s, over the years as the kids have grown our program has grown, to u8s - u18s, coed, Older Boys and Older Girls. In 2021 Thunder Rugby won the Boys High School National Rugby Championship. We have a high school program at Carlsbad High School (season goes from January - early march) and our Club program goes from January to March for the youngers (u8-u14) and Mid-March to May for the older (u15-u18)
