Land Park Motley, one of Northern California’s most established youth rugby programs, fields U-8, U-10, U-12 and Middle School teams.As a founding member of the Northern California Youth Rugby Association, our commitment is to preserve the history and tradition of a sport that creates friendships for life. Those friendships continue to grow as our Motley proudly go on to play at CK McClatchy, Jesuit, Christian Brothers, Rio Americano, El Camino, Kennedy and other High Schools.
We primarily play teams from within the Sacramento Valley and occasionally from the San Francisco Bay Area.
Jerseys will be handed out on a first come first serve basis with completed registration: Dues will be $150 for U-10 and U-12, and $170 for Middle School for 2017; Waiver; Registration Form; and proof of eligibility (Birth Cert/Passport for U-10 and U-12; Student ID for Middle School)
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.
