Important information you need to know about the new season for all Youth players & parents.
The Season starts on Sunday 2nd September 2018 at 10:00AM
For the Minis (U7 to U12), the first 4 weeks will be training at Walcot
Membership has increased by £5 over last season. Family membership costs £80, and covers all children in a family.
Membership registration and payments are all online this season.
Everything is online as we have to now comply with the new GDPR data protection legislation.
This season you will select and pay for your membership. You will need to select a youth membership (adult) for just one adult in the family, and then select a youth membership (player) for each child. The adult membership is £80 and the child memberships are £0.
We will capture Gift aid donations differently to last year – you choose a membership option for the adult in the family either with or without Gift Aid – it’s the same price for both.
If you were a member last season, you will receive an email with full details - including relevant links – for how to rejoin the club. This will be coming out in the last 2 weeks of August.
You will need to fill out an online form to confirm media consent and to capture any medical details for your child.
You will then proceed to the RFU site to confirm parent and player details, and then select and pay for your membership.
You then go to the online form to capture media consent and provide any player medical information. Use this link
You then return to the RFU GMS site to pay for your membership, using this link
Details for all three of these steps are contained in the attached “Walcot RFC New Youth Members Guide v2”.
Kit & Clothing
To provide maximum convenience and flexibility, all clothing is available from JMS Rugby.
Playing shirts are available now to try on and purchase in store. Sizes up to 34/36” chest cost £30 and 36/38” upwards cost £40.
Socks are available for around £6 a pair (Stanno: black with 3 white rings at the top)
Walcot members can purchase any black Canterbury clothing (shorts, tracksuit bottoms, contact tops, training tops etc.) and have a Walcot logo embroidered for free. This allows you to choose the item you want, and have the club crest added.
We will have 4 pitches marked out next door on Lansdown North.
U7 and U8 will train and play in the main Walcot grounds.
Other age groups will either be on the two main pitches or on Lansdown North. You will be advised where you will be training/playing during each week.
There is a pitch layout map on the back of the main stand.
