A warm WELCOME to Oxford RFC U11s!
If you turn 11 during the year on or after 01/09/17 then you are eligible to play for Oxford U11s!
We welcome new players to join our growing squad and regularly have new starters. We train each Sunday morning between 1000-1200, combining fun, purposeful activities and controlled game practice to develop all our players in the key skills required to enjoy and compete in this 'wonderful game'.
We are pleased to have a large competitive squad and so put on internal games weekly to give regular competitive match practise.
We encourage leadership and ask each player to take the lead in warmups and warm downs and rotate captains regularly.
Following on from last year (building on passing wide, close support of the ball carrier, working as a defensive group, tackling, introducing rucking and mauling, we will now introduce: -
- Rucking (max 6 players)
- Mauls (max 6 players)
- Uncontested 3 man scrums (but contested hooking)
- Fun attacking 'moves'
- Tactical kicking
We have two Wasps U18 Academy Players within our friendly coaching squad - to give our boys that extra boost.
We will play a number of friendly matches home and away, as well as mini rugby festivals but will also spend a lot of time training this year to ensure all our players are comfortable and safe in the contact and break down areas.
We also have some camping trips planned (with parents) and our first tour at end of season! (tour committee members needed)
Come down and join us and Give it a TRY!
