For a number of seasons both at the club and nationally there has been an increase in the number of very young (those under 6 years-old) players wanting to play rugby. This season we will be starting an Under 6 side fully adopting the principles set out by the Rugby Football Union, with the focus 100% on Fun!
Children (both boys and girls) in either Reception or Year 1 at School can join. We will provide a fun, safe, environment to introduce your youngster to the world of rugby. We encourage ball handling, spatial awareness, team work and most important of all we have lots of fun playing Tag Rugby.
The lead coach is an experienced Rugby Coach and is the Club's Director of Rugby. He has previous experience of coaching rugby at a number of age groups and as well as previously being a multi sports coach for 5-12 year olds.
The Under 6s do not play any competitive matches. We will usually train for 1 hour on a Sunday morning from 10.30am to approximately 11.30am. First Session Sunday 2nd September.
This is a new team, starting with just a lead coach. So its important that parent/carers support their kids and the club. It is essential that parents support the Under 6s by helping out and maybe stepping forward to support with coaching roles or the more admin side of the team.
New players can just turn up and join in the first couple of sessions for free. Following this there is a cost for the season which is £40 , with no additional weekly cost. There is no requirement to purchase club branded rugby kit but kit can be purchased through our Online Shop
