WE set ourselves very high standards and are always striving to improve the facilities at the club to benefit those that really matter, the children.

The club provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 3 and 18 years to receive coaching and take part in competitive rugby.

We warmly welcome parents to all training sessions and fixtures and value your support at all times.

Arrangements should be made for your child to travel to and from training sessions and matches. We would appreciate it if your child could arrive and be collected promptly at the end of the session. If you are going to be late please contact the relevant head coach at the club on 01529 303335.

For the safety of your child it is important that we are aware of any medical condition or allergies that may be relevant should your child fall ill or be involved in an accident at the club.
Should you wish to discuss your child's involvement with the club further please do not hesitate to contact either myself or any of our coaches or committee members.

"Rugby Toddle"

Designed to get children of pre-school age into rugby, "Rugby Toddle" uses fun games and activities to develop the basic skills required later such as running, handling, evasion and support.

U6 - U8

At U6, U7 and U8 age groups the children play a non-contact version of the game called ‘Tag Rugby’. It is safe and easy to play and can be enjoyed by both girls and boys together. It helps to develop the basic skills required later such as running, handling, evasion and support.

U9 - U10

At U9 and U10 age groups the children play ‘Mini Rugby’, where further changes are introduced to the basic game, such as the inclusion of contact, uncontested scrummaging and line-outs. The intention is always to provide players with the correct opportunities to develop their game in a safe and controlled environment.

U11 - U12

At U11 and U12 age groups the children move on to play ‘Midi Rugby’, where further developments to the basic game are made, such as the inclusion of contested scrums. The game remains suitable however for both boys and girls to participate together.

U13 - U17

At U13 through to U17 level the children continue to develop their skills through subtle alterations to the full adult game for the continued safety of the young players. ‘Junior Rugby’ ensures the children safely expand their skill set within definite guidelines and in full preparation for the senior version of the 15 a side game.
