Next Level Flag Football - Danville/San Ramon

Next Level Flag Football - Danville/San Ramon @ Monte Vista & Dougherty Valley HS

Due to the growth of Next Level in the Danville/Alamo/San Ramon area, we have decided to expand and combine the Danville and San Ramon programs.  Grades K, 1, and 2 will play on Saturdays at Dougherty Valley High School, and grades 3-6 will be played at Monte Vista High School on Sundays.  The 7th and 8th grade passing league will take place at both locations, on both Saturday and Sunday (see times below for each division's day and time). The only exception is the final weekend of March 10th and 11th, where games will take place on both Saturdays and Sundays at both locations, for ALL divisions.

General Overview of League Operations:

  1. NL Flag operations from early January through mid-March with a 10-week season schedule (1 scrimmage, 7 regular season games, 2 playoff games).
  2. Games are on Sundays with exceptions for Super Bowl Sunday (sites vary based on field availability, check the schedule below).
  3. Practices and Games are on the same day - parents need only allocate a 2-hour window of availability for their child's involvement.  Practice hours take place immediately prior to a participant's scheduled game time.

Coach Bergman's Bio:

Formally, he goes by Craig Bergman - but Coach Bergman or 'Coach Bergie' has guided the Varsity Football Team at Monte Vista High to two NCS Championships, two undefeated seasons, and two League titles during his 17 years coaching at Monte Vista. His goal for his Varsity squad this year is to "get better every day". He'll bring the same principles to the Next Level field for the younger athletes each and every weekend. 

In addition to coaching football, Coach Bergman is also the Athletic Director at Monte Vista and a P.E. instructor. A former starting quarterback for Santa Clara University, one of Bergman's favorite quotes is by Vince Lombardi - "The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender". Coach Bergman and his wife, Patrice, have a son Brian (13), daughter Lindsay (11) and son Gavin (9). Expect to see all the Bergman's out in the Next Level Community!!!
