Pleasanton Cavaliers

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS

Cavaliers Rugby is committed to develop the community-accepted traits of responsibility, compassion, self-discipline, honesty, respect, and integrity through the sport of rugby, regardless of ability. Founded in 2009, our club has grown each year as youth players and their familes come to realize the benefits that the sport of rugby provides. These benefits include:

  • Fun
  • Fitness
  • Teamwork
  • The chance to play a new sport, the 2nd most team popular sport in the world
  • The opportunity to play rugby against the best youth competition in the USA
  • College scholarship opportunities
As an all volunteer organization, the Pleasanton Cavaliers welcome those interested in getting involved with our club. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available, most requiring no rugby experience whatsoever. For those interested in giving back to the youth of our community, please contact us at: president@cavaliersrugby.com


Danville Oaks

About the Oaks

The Danville Oaks Rugby Club's mission is to provide youth in the Tri-Valley qualified instruction in rugby fundamentals and to engender a life-long love of the sport. Teams of varying levels of competition, from recreational (everyone welcome, all play in games) to highly competitive (highest-skilled players selected to play in games) are offered. Play becomes more competitive as players advance in age and ability. Special attention is given to character development, including community service.
The Danville Oaks Rugby Football Club consists of six age groups from U8’s to High School Varsity. Players are trained in the techniques and strategies required for playing the game of Rugby with the objective of building a solid, fun, competitive base to prepare young athletes for all of their current and future endeavors. The essential features of Rugby, good sportsmanship and fair play, are key components of the program. Players are given the opportunity to reach their full potential in a fun environment, irrespective of size, body shape or ability.
Rugby training begins in December on Saturdays and is increased to two nights a week in January through March for U8, U10, U12 and MS with games on Saturdays and Sundays. High School teams typically practice three nights a week from December through May, with games on Saturdays and Sundays. The Oaks take a break for the Holidays in late December/early January.
