About Motley

Land Park Motley is one of Northern California’s first and foremost youth rugby programs.  We field U-8, U-10, U-12 and Middle School teams. As a founding member of NorCal Youth Rugby Association, our commitment is to preserve the history and tradition of a sport that creates friendships for life. Many Motley players go on to play rugby at CK McClatchy, Jesuit, Christian Brothers, Rio Americano, El Camino, Kennedy and other High Schools.  Many of our players go onto play college rugby, represent us in all-star selections, and have represented  the United States of America in International Matches.

Our coaches are certified, referees are certified, and we have a certified medical professional at every match.

We primarily play teams from within the Sacramento Valley and occasionally from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Jerseys are on loan for the season and must be returned.  Rugby shorts and socks can be purchased from us after the first practice starts on November 28, 2017 for about $50.00.  These are good quality Canterburry shorts that should last a lifetime. 

Beginning the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, practices are on Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45 – 5:15 PM. Beginning in January, and as daylight permits, we will start practices later in the afternoon. During December and early January, we practice on the practice baseball fields just north of the zoo. Beginning mid January, and for the rest of the season, our practice field is next to the golf pro shop in Land Park

If you can’t make registration, or missed it, come on out. There is usually still room to participate.

Bring your cleats, a pair of shorts, a t-shirt and a mouthpiece. Mouthpieces are mandatory.

We start the season in Land Park adjacent to the baseball fields and north of the Zoo.
