Hi and welcome to the Fullerians RFC U9’s web page
This Squad is for children who turn 9 years old on or after 1st September 2017 through to 31st August 2018.
This means any boys or girls who are currently in Primary School Year 4 starting in September 2017.
We play under the RFU Age Grade Rugby rules for Under 9s, which are geared around full contact which means tackling but no scrummaging, rucking or mauling.
At Fullers U9s, we are passionate about what we do, but what we do is not about winning matches at all costs. Our goal is to bring children into the wonderful world of Mini Rugby, and to allow them to experience the discipline, fellowship, fun and excitement to be had. All of coaches are RFU qualified and DBS checked as well as first aid trained.
Some of the coaches all play at Fullers and have been part of the club for several years. All the coaches and our admin Pennie have children in the U9’s age group and we give up our time voluntarily.
Every child has a place in Mini Rugby and there is place for every child. As Head Coach Alban ensures we do not stream our teams and we ensure that everyone has fun each week by getting fully involved.
We welcome new players and we are always looking for boys and girls to join our squad of players. As a new player you get chance to try three sessions before you commit to joining the club, after which you will have to pay the subs and buy the kit.
A gum shield will be required from the outset, though. That's important!
The new season starts on Sunday 3rd September 2017, but children can join any time. If your child would like to try out, please contact Alban- contact details below.
We train Sunday mornings starting at 10am and usually go through to 1130am – 1200pm. Through the season we will play friendly fixtures against other local clubs.
