At Eastbourne U16’s we have a fantastic group of players, who are enthusiastic, friendly, hard working and who love being part of this squad and club. Players are of all levels of ability and experience with some having just joined and others have played rugby for some time. The focus of the coaching team is to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of the game and promote the values of teamwork, commitment, hard work and most importantly enjoyment and having fun.
We all follow the RFU Core Values of:
Teamwork • Respect • Enjoyment • Discipline • Sportsmanship
We train every Sunday in Eastbourne from 10:30 to 12:00 and on Wednesday evenings between 18:45 - 20:15 under floodlights. For those who wish to participate there is also an end of season tour and several ‘team building’ events throughout the year for players and supporters.
So if you want to play rugby why not come and join us? Everyone is welcome whether you have played before or are just thinking about trying it. U16’s play 15 a-side contact rugby and all players are required to wear gum shields and suitable kit. Coaches will refuse to let players participate in any contact sessions if they are not wearing a gum shield. If you need advice regarding gum shields or any other kit, then please talk to the coaches.
Please note we request parents/guardians remain pitch side with their children for the duration of the session.
