We are pleased to offer mini rugby to girls and boys in School Year 3 (rugby age groups coincident with school years).
The U8's team are currently operating a waiting list, if you would like your child to give rugby a try then please contact Lisa Gunther, Under 8's Manager, who will be happy to add your child's details to the list or answer any questions you may have.
Mini rugby is a mixture of exercise, skills, team work and personal development to bring out the best in children in an enjoyable environment. This is supported by qualified coaches within excellent facilities. The safety of children is of upmost importance and at all ages we assess each child on their ability before they are allowed to play in matches.
We follow the new RFU shaping the game principles.
We run training sessions and arrange home and away matches with other clubs on a Sunday morning, from September to April.
Details of fixtures and our selection policy are also available on this site.
At Under 8, players are introduced to tag rugby matches in 6 a-side teams with passing and pitch awareness.
Rugby is a wonderful team sport with social and life values that can last you a lifetime. Through physical engagement players develop decision making skills and individual responsibility for themselves and others.
We look forward to welcoming you to Upminster RFC.
