Our age group is for boys and girls who are in Year 3 at school and anyone is welcome to come and join us. No rugby experience is necessary, as our focus is on developing players’ skills throughout the season.

Rugby uses a ‘building block’ approach and aims to equip players with the skills they need as they build towards the XV-a-side game. Season by season players learn new aspects of the game – you can find out more about this by clicking the link below and visiting the RFU’s website.

The focus we follow is:

1. Put the child first
2. Maintain rugby as a game for all shapes and sizes
3. Increase enjoyment for all
4. Increase involvement for all
5. Retain players in the game

We train or play matches on Sundays between 10:30 and 12 noon approximately.

The RFU rules that we play our games around can be downloaded here.

We play mixed ability teams and to give our players lots of opportunity to play rugby, we will usually play 2 different clubs on the same Sunday.

Anyone is welcome to come and try rugby with us. If you would like to find out more about our age group, please contact us (details at the top of the page).
