Welcome to the Under 14s

We focus on skills development and tailored coaching, delivered in a fun and supportive way. Year 9 children are welcome to play in our U14’s team, and we welcome new players!
Please see below for essential U14s information:-


New Players:

If you are new to the Club or thinking about joining then you are welcome at Marlborough RFC.
New starters should come to the pitch and introduce themselves to a member of the coaching team.
You will need to sign a consent to play form on arrival which entitles your child to two trial sessions. After both of these sessions you will need to become a member of the club if you wish to continue.

Weekly sessions:

Our first session of the 2019-20 season is at 10.00m on Sunday 8th September.

Please use the clubhouse noticeboard to determine what our pitch allocation is for the day.

Sessions will end at approximately 12 noon.
All players must have a parent or guardian present at all times during training sessions and tournaments/fixtures. Please sign each player in/out at the start and end of each session.

Playing kit:

For all sessions we ask that each child arrives suitably dressed for the conditions, is fit and well and brings a named water bottle.

Mouth guards are mandatory and your child will not be allowed to take any part in a session if they do not wear a mouth guard.

U14s coaching team:

All our coaches are DBS checked and appropriately qualified to deliver training in a safe, inclusive and fun way.


Aims for the season:
• All activities are enjoyable for all

• All players have noticeably improved their rugby skills over the course of the season and can safely tackle and be tackled

• All players can understand the principles of body positions

• Players, parents and coaches actively support the fundamental principles of the RFU
Core Values – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.
• We actively seek encouragement, support and constructive feedback from players, parents and coaches.


Membership and registration:

It is a Club requirement that each player is a paid up member of the club and therefore players who are not members will not be permitted to train after September or play in fixtures during this period.


We would also like to remind you that your child must be registered with the RFU to play in a tournament. RFU registrations roll forward therefore if you completed this since joining you will not need to do it again this season.
