We welcome girls and boys whose 6th birthday is on or before 30th September 2017. Training starts at 9:30am on the lower field at Truro RFC, we normally train at the top of the field. The field is reached by walking past the 1st team pitch to the far corner and following the path over the ridge down into the lower field.
Our aim is to instil a love of rugby and a team ethos but most importantly have fun.
The children are introduced to rugby through the 'tag' format of the game and all matches are friendly fixtures.
These are played on Sunday mornings with varying start times followed by a team meal in the clubhouse. Away fixtures are played throughout Cornwall with the furthest being Penzance to the west and Launceston to the east.
Sessions will normally start with a fun group warm up followed by some skills sessions in smaller groups and then a tag rugby game in small teams. Each week a player of the week will be selected. This will be reflective off all aspects of the coaching as well as the children's personal development and improvement.
There is no need to pre-register. Just come along to one of our training sessions at any point in the season and give it a go. Just bring a water bottle and some suitable footwear - trainers will be fine initially.
We're entirely dependant on volunteers to run the mini's section coaching, first aiders, managers. No experience is necessary - being a parent is enough! Please let me know if you would like to be involved in anyway.
I look forward to seeing you.
