Círculo de Ex-Cadetes del Liceo Militar General San Martín, or simply Liceo Militar, is a sports club from General San Martín Partido, Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina.[2] The club has representative teams in rugby union and field hockey.

History[edit]

In 1950, former cadets of the military high school General San Martín founded the rugby club "Circulo de Ex-Cadetes del Liceo Militar General San Martín".

Playing only friendly games for the first few years, the club registered with the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires in 1962 and entered the URBA league system the same year. A field hockey section would be created many years later.

After occupying other clubs' premises for the first fifteen years of its existence, the club would acquire its own installations near Loma Hermosa in 1974.

Liceo Militar entered the URBA league system in 1962 and won promotion to the highest level of provincial rugby in 1970. Today the team still plays at the highest level of URBA's league system, fielding teams at all levels. Although Liceo Militar has won titles at underage levels, the team has not achieved senior titles to date.

Some of Liceo's most notable players are Roberto Taschetti, Mariano Perasso, Daniel Solaberrieta, Alejandro Braceras, Rodrigo Garcia Estebarena and Nicolas Basile."Veco" Villegas was also a notable coach.

The club's main rival is Liceo Naval.
