At a time when cities and schools have almost eliminated recreation and sports programs, the Oakland Warthogs Youth Rugby Program is stepping up and offering young men a tremendous opportunity, not just for sports but for life. Through intense fundraising we are able to offer virtually no-cost participation because we are passionate about teaching kids the ultimate team game, which emphasizes sportsmanship, courage, speed, skill, tenacity and communication. While teaching the game we are also teaching life skills, striving for a 100-percent graduation rate. We want to get our kids to a higher level, whether in college or the work force (The reality is that only a small percentage of young men can go play college football, baseball or basketball, but rugby—soon to return to the Olympics—is growing on campuses and played throughout the world). All of our coaching staff either live or work in Oakland. It is because of our ties to the community that we are committed to the short and long term goal of producing confident, accomplished athletes and confident accomplished citizens.
