We are pleased to offer mini rugby to boys and girls from Under 6 to Under 12 in rugby age groups coincident with school years.
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 9 (School Year 4) Players are introduced to contact rugby matches in 7 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. If you would like your child to give rugby a try then please contact a coach in the appropriate age group or come down to one of the training sessions and see for your self. We look forward to welcoming you to Upminster RFC.
