Abergavenny is proud of the youth/junior setup in the club. There is a section for you whatever your age, sex or ability.
The Under 9 section is where it all starts! This is a mixed group for both boys and girls - the only section in the club where the genders are mixed, it is for anyone in Year 4 and below. We are often asked what is our minimum age, well that very much depends on the individual, the youngest we tend to have seen in recent years are in Year 1, but in reality players tend to start at Year 2, but come along and see how you get on!
For the top junior school aged players, we have our Under 11 sections. These are for players in Year 5 and 6 - i.e. top Primary school age. At this age we split the genders so there is a separate one for girls and boys.
Once a player is in the first two years of secondary school age (i.e. Years 7 and 8), they would be in our Under 13 sections. Age split by gender so separate ones for boys and girls.
The Under 15 sections are then for Years 9 and 10, again boys and girls have separate sessions.
We will enter Under 18 cup tournaments for boys and girls, any in school Year 13 and below would be eligible for these. But we don't have separate Under 18 training times now, these players are more than capable of competing in the senior teams so will be training and playing in the senior sections.
For the 2017-18 season there are the training times:
|Under 11 Boys||Tuesday||18:30-19:30||Astroturf|
|Under 13 Boys||Tuesday||19:30-20:30||Astroturf|
|Under 15 Boys||Thursday||20:00-21:00||Astroturf|
|Under 11 Girls||Tuesday||18:30-19:30||Astroturf|
|Under 13 Girls||Tuesday||18:30-19:30||Astroturf|
