Soccer Clinic May 13 at DVHS

Hello all players and parents! My name is Vaibhav Naidu, and I am currently a junior and varsity soccer player at Dougherty Valley High School. Soccer has been a personal passion for me since I was 6 years old, and has largely shaped me into the person I am today.  I now hope to share a similar gift with the youth of this generation. My friends and I started the Soccer Without Borders club at DVHS, with the hope that we can coach kids in the immediate community, as well as raise money to provide equipment and coaching for eager players without the same opportunities that we were given.
Our club is currently hosting a clinic this weekend from 10-1 on Saturday, May 13 at the Dougherty Valley High School.
The price to participate is $20, with an additional $10 for a Soccer Without Borders t-shirt! 100% of the proceeds go towards helping underprivileged kids, and the organization Positive Tracks has agreed to match the value of our donations. Please sign up and spread the word!
Check out our flyer (attached below) for clinic details.
Visit our website (dvhsswb.weebly.com) or contact me(yb.naidu8…@g…com) for questions.
Thank you!
Vaibhav

Club Sport San Ramon Squash

I’m posting this for my husband, Saurabh. He is an avid Squash player and likes to play a couple of times a week, but sometimes work priorities/commute-time come in the way. We are not members of Club Sport San Ramon. We did the math and figured that a full membership would be wasteful, given his schedule.
Members get 2 guest passes a month. If any of you are members at Club Sport San Ramon and would like to sell off guest passes (they go for ~$15 a piece) to us, or invite him to a gruelling game of squash (his skill level is 4.5) :),  please contact me at g.akansh…@g…com
Thanks !

ZARA bachke f0r Indian men in Tri valley

It’s a thought that we are privileged to be living in this region of the country with all the presence of desi community, public amenities, the landscape, and all the aspirations that we carry around even with a nostalgic feeling of social dynamism back in our country.
Now, as BOYS & MEN, lets come together to explore many things the area has to offer and we as MEN can take. Some activities could include:

  • running & biking on trails
  • hiking
  • sports (badminton, volleyball, kayaking)
  • playground converge along with kids (Dads with kids)
  • just meet and chat no matter where and when (on a drink-dinner)
  • watch sports

At this moment this is for MEN only please. You can propagate the idea, if you wish, and please record your email in your response so that we can create a common stage.

Kajukenbo Karate Lessons

My name is Yaju and I am a 15 year old black belt in Kajukenbo karate. I am interested in teaching classes on Sunday mornings from 10am- 11am. (During the summer, additional classes and timings will be offered.)
What is Kajukenbo? Kajukenbo is a highly effective fusion of four different martial arts: Korean Karate, Ju-jitsu, Kenpo, and Kung Fu. Practical applications of Kajukenbo show that this karate is successful in blocking and taking down attackers. When it comes to self-defense, strong, linear punches and strikes mixed with the ingenuity of kung fu is a lethal mix.
Kajukenbo spurred my passion for the martial art. I want to keep doing Kajukenbo forever, because it’s not just defense against another person; its defense against the factors in life that will bring you down.
After every class, I felt less stressed and more confident in other aspects of my life as well. I found my grades rising and my social life becoming happier. Kajukenbo allowed me to take charge of my life and pursue a martial art with passion. As a girl, I learnt to defend myself and use size and body weight to my advantage. Now, I realize that Kajukenbo is the art that drives me and has given me the confidence and assurance I need in other areas of life.

Cost & Contact Details: Classes are one hour each on Sunday mornings from 10-11 am in my garage in the Gale Ranch area of San Ramon. Cost is $7 per class. For more information on class details, location, Kajukenbo, or my experiences with it, email me at yaju.dvhs@gmail.com or call me at (510) 792 5622.
