The Under 9s are the next step up from our 'Minis' section, and comprise of children in Year 4 at school. They routinely train either at home in Cams Alders or occasionally away at other local clubs, from 1000-1130 every Sunday and participate in regional tournaments during the better weather of Autumn and Spring. The Under 9s format is the first season of contact, introducing tackling into matchplay. Rucking, mauling, scrummaging and other technical disciplines are incrementally introduced in subsequent age groups. Further details can be found here:
The coaching team aim to continue the development from the Tag Rugby format by refining ball handling skills, teamwork and some of the rules and tactics used in Rugby Union, but first and foremost, the emphasis is on having fun. We welcome all new players throughout the season and our selection criteria for tournaments is based on participation and attendance at training sessions. Please do contact us by email or feel free to just come along and join us on a Sunday morning - all are welcome.
