U12 2017-18 Season

We have 60 boys playing across three mixed ability squads coached by our eleven coaches.

Last season we played over one hundred matches and had fantastic results at the Land Rover Tournament and the County, Banbury and Berry Hill Festivals.

This season we will train and play home fixtures between 10.15 and 12:00 on Sundays at Reeves Fields, Old Bath Road, Cheltenham (Entrance just off the roundabout in Charlton Park Drive GL53 7DF with parking at Cheltenham College Sports Hall GL53 7AD )

When playing home fixtures post-match lunches will be served at our Club House at Everest Road which is less than 5 minute’s drive from Reeves.

Here is a reminder of this season’s changes to the regulations:

We will now have twelve players on the pitch. The additional three positions will be two second row players added to the scrum and a second centre.
The pitch size will remain the same, maximum 60x43 metres with a 5m try area .
The duration of the matches can be unto 40 minutes.
As last season there will be no pushing at the scrum however the hookers will be allowed to contest the strike at the put in.
There are now no limits to the number of players that can commit to the ruck or the maul
Players will be allowed to hand off BUT only below the armpit level
The scrum half will still pass from the base of the scrum
