Tadley Tiger U13s Team

Welcome to U13’s rugby at Tadley Tigers RFC, a local rugby club that prides itself on community, inclusiveness and fun for children of all ages and ability.

The U13’s is for boys starting Year 8 in September 2019. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you have picked up a rugby ball, and everything we do is built around having fun in a friendly, enjoyable and safe environment.

This season the U13’s will continue their rugby progression through the age grade rugby syllabus, training and playing in line with the RFU Core Values, and increasing the pitch size and number of players on a team. We will also be introducing 6 player scrum - strike & push and kicking – flyhack.

Information for the season ahead:
• The 2019/20 season will start on Sunday 8th September 2019. It will continue every Sunday through until April 2020, with the exception of a few weeks off for Easter and Christmas holidays. To cultivate a team ethic and rugby spirit, we pride ourselves on the fact that “Through wind and rain, TTRFC always train” (unless there is severe weather!).
• Sessions take place at the Tadley RFC ground between 6pm-7pm on Thursday evenings and 11am – 12:45pm on Sunday mornings.
• There are parking spaces available at the club, but these can fill very quickly. You can park on Red Lane (outside the club), but we ask that you are extremely cautious as this can be a busy road.
• We do require membership registration and payment of subscription fees if your children are going to remain for the whole season. However, we allow two or three weeks at the start of the season so that parents and children are completely happy before committing.
• Your children’s safety and comfort is our biggest priority. We therefore have a few golden rules for clothing and equipment:
o Children should have appropriate clothing for rugby and should bring a drink (as we take breaks during sessions).
o In cold and wet weather, please remember “layers for players”. Base layers are a great idea. It is better to have too many lawyers on the day rather than not enough. A waterproof top is great at keeping the wind and rain out.
o In terms of footwear, trainers can be worn in warm, drier weather, but rugby boots are recommended as pitch conditions get wetter and softer.
o You will need a gum shield – please ensure that these are properly moulded (it should hug the top teeth when your child opens their mouth).
• Ideally players should have a parent/guardian/carer in attendance during each session.
• There is a club shop if you want to buy branded clothing for those colder and wetter days, or new kit for your children.
• Finally, all the coaches at TTRFC are volunteers. If you would like to get involved, please just shout. The Club is always looking for all kinds of volunteers – all we ask you to bring is stacks of enthusiasm. If you are interested you can ask for a Coach/Volunteer Register of interest.

I am sure there will be lots of other questions parents will have, so please do not hesitate to email me using the details below. No question is a silly one, and if I don’t know the answer then I will make sure I find the right person at the club who does!
