Bay Area Baracus Rugby Club

Home of San Francisco's premier rugby club

Pre-season 2016

You’d think visiting our website that our club has died. Well, kinda — last night still hurts. But the club is going from strength to strength with a solid 2015 season behind us.

What we see now is that the young boys of five years ago are now solidly running the club and team, a huge achievement as the original generation of Baracus has completely retired so which will ensure we go for another decade of good rugby and unforgettable life experiences.

Pre season started in the third week of October 2015 after a fun off-season of thrice weekly touch football (San Francisco Marina Green Tuesday/Thursday and Ocean beach Saturday) as well as rugby 7’s.

This weekend we are participating in the annual Chico tournament which is our first taste of the new season and a chance for new nick names to be christened on the rookies due to outlandish behavior.

Our season has now been announced. You can check the Baracus google calendar which has all the latest match info here: https://goo.gl/XZ5Ung

Pre-Season Training Is Happening Now!

Right now is the perfect time to join BA Baracus RFC. The club is training on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00-9:00 at Youngblood Coleman Fields in scenic Hunter’s Point.
Youngblood Coleman is easily accessible via the Muni T train or 19 bus. Or you could drive, but don’t leave anything valuable in your car.

Summer 7s is ON!!

Get to training on Marina Green every Tuesday and Thursday.

Tentative tourney schedule:

Way of the Warthogs

 

Fellow Ruggers,

Way of the Warthogs is a documentary about the the Oakland Warthog Youth Rugby Program. But it’s more than just rugby, the documentary follows the lives of the players on and off the pitch and how the program has been a positive influence in their lives while growing up in inner city Oakland. Here’s the official trailer.

Let’s support youth rugby and community initiatives. Please take a moment and like their Facebook page.

Sac Capitols 6 – 34 Baracus

Sac Caps: 2 pen

Baracus: 2 pen, 4 converted tries

2 early penalties for the Caps, then a convincing bonused win for B.A.!
