Welcome to the Brechin Junior Rugby (Pirates) Micro's and Minis Page ! We are a fun group for kids in Primary 1 to Primary 7.
P1-3 play Micro Rugby, this is where it all starts. If you are a youngster wanting to learn about rugby, you start at micro rugby level. At this level we spend time having fun but developing skills and tactics and learning the rules at the same time. The most important thing is that the children learn how to play the game safely and in the right spirit.
P4-5 play Mini rugby which sees the introduction of contact in the forms of tackling and rucks. Again this is done in a safe controlled environment with safety being the main focus.
P6-7 build on the contact introducing rucks, mauls and non-contested scrums.
We experience relatively few bumps and bruises and the children keep on coming back for more !!
