Shopping online?

Instead of shopping at, shop at and select "Bay Area Youth Rugby Inc" as your charity of choice (they are our non-profit fiscal sponsor). It's the same website/products/prices, but a portion of every purchase goes to the club! As always, thank you for your support!

Write for the team!

Our community has so much talent. Is writing one of yours? Got an idea for a community-related or rugby-related article we can include in the next month's newsletter? We'll help you develop it! (and reward you princess hours in the process too!). Reach out to us here.

Hey there, All Blues Nation!

We're working hard to keep you up to date on the latest and greatest from the WPL. Our team is facing the WPL's newest competitor (Chicago North Shore!) in an away game this Sunday, 9/24. Send us some good vibes!

Here are your latest community news:
Building Greatness From The Inside Out. Dot Mittow sits down with head coach Theo Bennett to talk about what it takes to build individual players and a great team.

CPC Player Profile: Emma Clery. Emma's brand-spanking new to the All Blues this season, but has already made quite the impact on the team. Nominated by Bosko (our last month's featured player), this player "runs hard! And it's always cool to play with someone who has grown up in a rugby country!" Get to know her in this interview!

Aye Aye, Captains! Congratulations to our newly-elected captains, Allie Byrne, Alyssa Baccarella, and Katie Chou. Collectively, they have played 34 years of rugby, of which 19 have been with the All Blues. We hope to know more about them as the season goes on! 

Welcome new board members! Shoutouts to our newest exec board members: Serena Liu (recruitment chair), Cathy Cai (rookie coordinator), Sarah Clay (social chair), and Tess Thorman (treasurer). Our club can only run so smoothly with hella work in the background. Thank you for stepping up!
Game Day Coverage: All Blues vs. Glendale Merlins Match 1. We've got your game day video and photos from that super close game. Jackie Finlan from TRB wrote a match report you can check out here.

Game Day Coverage: All Blues vs. ORSU Match 1. We've got a match report written by our own Elena Cuadros, game day video, and photos!
