The Under 9s squad is the youngest team organised by the Old Patesians Rugby Club. Our aim is to provide best experience possible for all children (and adults!) at the start of their very rewarding and fulfilling journey in rugby.
The philosophy for the Under 9s is to encourage enjoyment in rugby from the start – while also following the other RFU core values (teamwork, discipline, sportsmanship & respect).
From the Autumn onwards to the end of season in April we will have a balance of training sessions to learn and improve core skills and matches organised locally.
As both a parent and a coach I am very much looking forward to the new season, watching ourchildren learn and develop their rugby skills and making many new friendships along the way.
