KOT Starts Off Rugby Season (2/1/2016)

We are proud to report the Sacramento Valley Rugby Foundation’s 32nd Annual Kick Off Tournament went very well this past weekend (January 30/31, 2016). The “KOT” greatly benefited from dry weather on the weekend, after weeks of several rain cycles helped our extensive field improvements settle into place. Read More
