2022 MOTLEY RUGBY SEASON: Those familiar with Motley will note we changed our name to Sacramento Rugby Union, as we have merged with Lady Harlequins and the Lions Rugby Club, formerly of McClatchy High School. This was done to provide us more resources going forward and also to provide a natural pipeline of players to these two clubs once Motley players graduate 8th grade and enter high school. We still keep our name of “Motley”, and many Motley players continue to play rugby as they enter 9th grade at Jesuit, Christian Brothers, Kennedy, Rio Americano and more.
We are entering our 16th year and are one of the three founding member clubs of Middle School and Youth Rugby in the Sacramento area.
Both girls and boys play on our Under 10 and Under 12 year old teams. Girls over 12 years of age typically play with our sister club, the Lady Harlequins.
Practice will be held every Tuesday and Thursday in December at the baseball fields (see area outlined in red on the map below) until December 23. Break for Christmas, then practice continues in January every Tuesday and Thursday at a location to be determined.
We look forward to seeing familiar faces, along with new ones, December 2! For those new players do not worry about registering until your child determines they like the sport. Registration will be under SportLomo OR USARugby.org, then RUGBYNORCAL, then SACRAMENTO RUGBY UNION, then LANDPARK RFC. Dues will be $225 per player. We do offer family discounts for two or more players as well as scholarships.
Preseason matches begin Jan. 8 and 15th.
U 10s season typically concludes by the end of February; U12 season concludes a week after, and MS concludes mid March.
