  2. “Way of the Warthogs” features the Oakland Warthogs Youth Rugby program, the challenges faced by its student athletes and the impact of rugby in America’s inner cities The primary narrative will follow the lives of Warthog players at different stages, explore the challenges and realities of growing up in Oakland, and how the sport of rugby is changing their lives.

    In the harshest section of Oakland, California, a charter school introduced rugby to Middle School students in 2006 as a reward for academic achievement. The Warthogs played their first two seasons without a single win and with very little support from the city. The club looked to the rugby community and found support from retired rugby players, who donated used jerseys and old equipment. Despite little success on the pitch, the coaches emphasized academics, grades, discipline and the aspiration of attending college in a city with a 40% dropout rate. By 2011 they were champions and more importantly, college a reality. “Way of the Warthogs” is their story, and the story of rugby inside America’s Inner City.

An example of a great organization doing work locally in Oakland around youth empowerment and challenging notions of violence. We look forward to interviewing Nicole again for the feature film.
