Team info

U8s

Our 2019/20 season starts on Sunday 1st September 2019 and finishes at our home festival on Sunday 3rd May 2020.

We are a small, welcoming club with a thriving Minis rugby section. Our U8s (Year 3) play non-contact tag rugby, whereby players are 'tackled' by having a tag pulled off a velcro belt. Tag rugby gives children an opportunity to make friends and have fun as well as improving fitness and developing hand-to-eye co-ordination. Girls play alongside boys and we are lucky enough to have some great girls in our team!

We train on Sundays mornings from 10am to noon except when we are playing a match. We play matches on Sunday mornings, at home and away, against other rugby clubs from across the region.

New players are welcome throughout the season. If your Year 3 son or daughter is interested in giving tag rugby a go, feel free to drop in at a training session (see 'fixtures' to find out when we will be training at Blackwell Meadows). Be dressed for the weather in tracksuit bottoms or shorts, t-shirt, jumper (coat, hat and gloves occasionally!) and trainers or football/rugby boots if you have them.

All our players must be members of Darlington RFC (annual fee applicable) and registered with the RFU (free). Subs are £3.50 per week or monthly standing order available. New players are offered two weeks' free trial.

For more information please contact U8s coach Alistair Bowden on 07837 973048.
