The Oakland Warthogs Youth Rugby Program exists to improve the lives and character of young men in Oakland, while motivating them to obtain a college education. Our program teaches young men principles of success through the sport of rugby. They learn the power of teamwork, discipline, hard work, respect, and being a family. Our coaching staff mentors our participants on and off of the rugby pitch. A winning record is not our priority, rather a reward to our participants for their hard work and efforts. The vast majority of our participants live in poverty and it is only through fundraising efforts, donations, grants, and sponsorships that our program is able to survive.
