DEESIDE RUGBY
MINIS (PRIMARY 4) UPDATE – 2020/21 - training will shortly resume for the 2020/21 season.
More information will be sent to parents in due course.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Welcome to Deeside Minis Primary 4s. All are welcome (boys and girls) in Primary 4 in the school year 2020/21. We train most Saturdays 0930-1100hrs, at Woodend Playing Fields, Banchory, AB31 5QA. (Opposite Tesco).
The aim of Mini Rugby is to start developing a lifelong love of sport, through rugby. We encourage children to learn the basic skills of the game in a positive learning environment.

TRAINING
Training is expected to start in August (COVID-19 restrictions permitting). Generally, we align with the school term, with breaks at October, Christmas and Easter, but other than that, it’s most Saturday mornings until the end of May, plus the occasional tournament on a Sunday. In winter, bad conditions or frozen pitches may mean we have to cancel training. Please keep an eye on e-mail or Twitter (https://twitter.com/DeesideMinis) for any last-minute updates.

KIT
If you’re trying rugby for the first time, there’s no need to splurge on a full set of kit initially. Comfortable sports clothing (appropriate for the weather) and decent trainers are acceptable. As time goes on, we would recommend studded boots. And for those who wish club branded kit, rugby shirts /socks /training tops are available most Saturday mornings, from the club. The only piece of kit that is essential is a gum shield – these are inexpensive and can be purchased from most sports shops, or online.

COVID-19
Training will follow all recommended Scottish Rugby guidelines with regard to COVID-19. Players must have clean kit, bring their own hand sanitiser and named water bottle. There will be no changing rooms or toilets available and social distancing measures will be adopted as required. Further information/instructions will be sent to parents prior to training starting.

COACHING
All Deeside Rugby coaches are PVG registered and complete the Scottish Rugby Union ‘Rugby Right’ coaching course at the start of each season. Many are trained to UKCC level 1, with some coaches in the senior boys up to UKCC level 3 or 4. All coaches have basic training in child welfare. We work hard to keep all the children safe, but First Aiders are on hand, should the need arise. The club also has a dedicated Child Protection Officer.

REGISTRATION
If you’re new to the club, feel free to come along for a few weeks and give it a try. However, if you do decide to join, players need to register with the club (and parents can join as non-playing members). Registrations forms, and payment, is via the Deeside RFC website: www.pitchero.com/clubs/deesiderfc. Fees for 2020/21 are unchanged from the last few years, at £85 for the year. The fee goes towards running the club facilities, including rental of the playing fields. It also covers appropriate insurance for all players and therefore players will not be allowed to participate in any tournaments until registration is complete.

New players (those playing at P4 or above, for the first time) also need to be registered with SCRUMS, Scottish Rugby’s online system. Information is available from:

If you have previously registered with SCRUMS, at Deeside RFC, this should roll over automatically and you do not need to re-register,

We try to avoid last-minute changes to training. However, sometimes this is unavoidable. If you’re on Twitter, please follow @DeesideMinis. Even if you’re not on Twitter, it’s worth a quick check of the website on Saturday mornings, just to check that we haven’t had change or cancel for any reason:
