"Kids First Rugby" is all about putting children first and having as much fun as possible whilst learning and playing this great game!
The basics will always stay the same and we will help all of our players to develop their core skills of catching, passing and running.
Under 9s rugby is the first season where contact play is introduced.
All of our sessions are about developing the player and improving skills. The children make friendships and are encouraged to feel a belonging to the wider club community.
We believe in team values and sportsmanship above match results and developing confidence and leadership in the children.
We meet every week on Sunday morning from 10.15am until 11.00 for training ahead of home fixtures. Matches will commence at 11:00.
Matches against other clubs at U9 are 40 minutes in duration, twenty minutes each way. the format can change depending on how many players the respective teams field.
To be eligible to play for the Under 9s your son or daughter must turn 9 years old during this school year.
Please remember to bring a drink and a snack for your child and also please keep an eye on the weather since cold and wet children make unenthusiastic rugby players!
You can check under our RESULTS AND FIXTURES page for details of where we are playing each week.
For more information please contact us on our club e-mail (above and below) or feel free to come and meet us on Sunday morning.
