Mother Lode Rugby Football Club started out as Oak Ridge Rugby Club in the late 90's. It was first a high school boys team, the next year a high school girls team followed. In the late 00's the club expanded to add youth teams. The club has now grown to what it is today.
Practice is weekly at Ponderosa High School. U10/U12, Middle School, and High School Girls will practice Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:30. High School Boys will practice Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30PM. I realize many of you are finishing up other sports still, and won't make it right away. If you still want to give rugby a try, please make sure that you have filled out the waivers at below. Ponderosa High School is located at 3661 Ponderosa Rd, Shingle Springs, CA 95682.
