Mini Rugby is the first step on the Rugby Union ladder, introducing children from the ages of 6 – 12 to the game.
Our introduction, starting with the Under 7’s, is a fun, yet structured approach to ball-handling skills, team building and tag rugby. From there, the Under 7’s learn and practice honing their ball and tagging skills – achieved through weekly training sessions, quite often in conjunction with other Mini Rugby clubs. During this year, the kids are also introduced to competitive tagging games against other clubs. Tag rugby advances through to the Under 8’s.
From Under 9 to Under 12, the children continue training and competing in full contact rugby.
Even if your child has not played rugby before do not worry!! Contact the club’s Youth Development Officer Tom Harrison on 07515 405754 for further information about getting into Rugby. We'll always provide a warm and friendly welcome to anyone looking to try rugby.
Rugby is a team game both on and off the field. Our clubhouse, The J M Guthrie Clubhouse, offers a place for all members of the player’s family to socialize before and after training. As much team and friendship building occurs during training as it does afterwards.
There are no prerequisites to becoming a member of the club, we welcome children of all abilities and nationalities and openly encourage their families to become actively involved in the training and support of both their children and the club.
It is due to the unwavering support and commitment of our coaches and parents who volunteer their time unconditionally, that the club as a whole and the individual teams are so successful in every way possible.
Membership to the club has a nominal cost – what Mini Rugby gives and what the kids get from the club … is priceless! Club Membership for 2010-2011 is £10 plus £2 a week payable on each Sunday morning session.
For the 2010-2011 season we have also introduced a players pack for all the minis and youth teams consisting of a Training Top, Club Socks and Shorts. All this can be yours for only £30.
More kit is available and is sold from the club shop which will be open every Sunday morning from 9.45am. The shop is also open on a Saturday at 1st XV games. Polo shirts, fleeces, jackets, shorts, socks and mouth guards are available. We are also opening up an online shop so click here to be taken straight to the Shop section to see what we currently have in stock.
