Ashley Down Old Boys RFC Juniors was officially launched in May 2016, the youth section now forms an integral part of our RFU accredited club, with a number of youths from the local community and beyond actively involved in the club.
Children as young as 3 years old are welcome to come and join. Training runs from September - April and the children have great fun playing games, developing skills and understanding the game. The are a number of games and festivals arranged for Under 7's upwards whilst the under 6's and below continue to train on a weekly basis.
Training and matches - Training takes place every Sunday from 10.15 prompt until 11.15. Matches are also played for under 7's upwards.
Playing Kit - Each player that is involved in matches will be provided with a playing shirt that will be collected after each game by your coach.
Additional Kit - We would prefer our children to look the part during games, training and afterwards. We have a selection of items that are available to purchase. You can find our kit shop here
Costs - Annual membership costs for 2019/20 season are £30 per child for the season, we also offer a discounted half price deal for siblings of £15 per child. There is also a weekly charge of £1 per week per child. We would prefer this to be paid in either one block £35 for the season, monthly or bimonthly if possible. The fees cover the running costs of the club, RFU insurance, shirt laundry and food each week after training / games. We kindly request that you pay the weekly subs as above, even if you are unable to make certain weeks.
We are looking to make a difference to the lives of young people, promote sport in our community, build for the future and be able to provide rugby for all ages to enjoy. Our approach encourages children from all backgrounds to become confident and prepare them for adulthood.
ADOB has been around for nearly 100 years and is a great club to be a part of. Last year we reached over 100 children to the club and the numbers are growing by the minute. We look forward to seeing you in the near future, wearing the purple and white shirt and representing ADOB juniors!
