"U7's: NEW PLAYERS WELCOME!
The U7 age group is for boys and girls who are aged 6 on the 1st September 2016 (Year 1 at school in 2016/17). There is no need to pre-book or contact us, just come along to a training session (details below) and tell one of the coaches that you’re a new joiner. You are welcome to use up to 3 sessions as a free trial, after which you will be asked to join the club to keep playing. Membership forms and payment details will be provided by admin volunteers at the sessions.
Training sessions start on the first Sunday of September and are run at 10:30am every Sunday (except Christmas) until the end of April. Please arrive at least 10 minutes beforehand to get tags on ready for an on-time start.
Football or rugby boots are a good idea but trainers are also OK at this age level. Club kit is not mandatory for U6s but is available at the club-house (second hand kit is also for sale at the start of the season) and we find the kids love to wear it and it helps them feel part of the club. If the weather is cold we strongly recommend waterproof jackets, tracksuit trousers, hats and especially gloves - there's nothing like frozen fingers to put kids off rugby.
The entire Minis section of the club is run by volunteers, it’s great fun, very rewarding and is not a big commitment. We encourage as many people as possible to get involved as coaches, admin or first aid, training is available. Please drop an email to Ben if you’re interested.”
Note the age group - reception kids are generally micros.
