GIRLS RUGBY - FUN, FITNESS AND FRIENDSHIPS

St Austell RFC has a growing section of girls that love the game of rugby.

There are three age groups
Under 13 years (years 7 and 8 at secondary school)
Under 15 years (years 9 and 10 at secondary school)
Under 18 years (years 11 and college students)

Training

Training will run every Friday evening from 6.30pm to 7.45pm at Tregorrick Park, St Austell, PL26 7AG
Andy Ashwin is our head coach and runs each training session. Our coaches are volunteers and give up their own time to help develop our squad. Our coaches include Luke Bazeley, Head of engineering at Plymouth College, Miss Helina Colledge,Science teacher at the Roseland school and Andy Ashwin Deputy head at Roseland school. The older more experienced girls help to lead the sessions, develop a warm up plan and assists with the younger players.
There are times during the winter when the grass pitches are too wet to train, training may be cancelled at short notice or moved to an all weather facility such as the 4G pitch at Brannel school.

Matches

These take place most Sunday afternoons at various rugby clubs in Cornwall

Clothing and equipment

Players must be prepared to get muddy, hot, cold and wet!
Essential equipment includes studded boots, shorts or leggings, 2 or 3 of top layers and a fitted GUMSHIELD and a water bottle.
Rugby is a contact sport – therefore all clothing worn must NOT have zips, buttons, hoods or fasteners.
Please do not go out and buy equipment until you are sure your daughter really wants to join our team – we have a selection of second hand boots and tops that can be borrowed for the first few weeks.
Players will normally remove one top layer as they become warmer and replace that top layer again to return home.

Transport

Sunday Matches will be taking us all around Cornwall, I appreciate parents are busy and also have other commitments, so if your child is able to play but needs a lift to the match – please speak to me or other parents within our group – I am sure we can find a lift!

Communication

I prefer to communicate with all parents and players via a mobile phone app called HEJA. I will need to give you a unique code to access our St Austell Angel team. This app allows you to read and reply to the most recent messages,see the full schedule of fixtures and post your availability.
We also have a closed facebook site that you may wish to join - St Austell Girls 2019
I recommend that every parent and player puts my contact details into their phone.
