Welcome to Worcester RFC Under 9’s. Our ethos is to provide our players with a safe, fun and cost effective rugby experience, we aim to recruit and retain as many players as possible.
All new players are welcome to join at any time in the season regardless of ability or experience.
There is no need to pre-register and there is no waiting list - just turn up on a Sunday morning when we are at home.
We train and play home games on Weston's Fields each Sunday from 10:00 until 12:00.
This year we are playing by the side of pitch 1, next to our new clubhouse on Weston’s Fields.
Players must be under nine years of age on 31st August 2018. This equates to children in school year 4.
--Training and Matches--
We train and play home games at Weston's Fields each Sunday from 10:00 until 12:00, please aim to arrive at 9:50 so that we can start on time. Afterwards players and parents are encouraged to socialise in the clubhouse. After matches hotdogs are provided by the club for all players. There is always hot food or hot drinks available before and after training and games.
We do play matches away from home and parents are encouraged to car share where possible to keep costs down. Away games do vary in distance from Droitwich to Luctonians near Ledbury.
The season runs from the first Sunday in September to the first Sunday in May with breaks at Christmas and Easter. If you know that you will not be able to attend then please let the age group manager or head coach know as early as possible.
All players must have boots and a gum shield as this is our first year of contact rugby (just tackling this season). Head guards and padding is optional. For the first four weeks (and training in general) the players will just need shorts and rugby style top. They may also want training tops, base layers and joggers in case of bad weather.
The full kit of shirt, shorts and socks costs in the region of £50. Tags, balls and any other kit will be provided by the club.
The annual subs is £60.
With over 30 sessions per year and a subsidised tour at the end of the season this is offers fantastic value when compared to other sports or clubs.
To be successful age group and club we need the support and involvement of parents. The club and age group is run by volunteer parents, there are no salaried positions at all within the club and we are not part of Worcester Warriors.
Each year we aim to take the players on tour. Last year at under 8's this was a one night trip to the Southwest, playing rugby and hopefully getting on the beach weather permitting. Hopefully more of the same this year.
