The aim of CRFC’s Mini Rugby is to foster and develop young players (girls & boys) of all abilities in the game of rugby in a safe, non-competitive, enjoyable environment through activities which ensure progressive skill development. Using the foundation of the RFU’s Age Grade Rugby and the progressive development tools guided by Quilter Kids First program. We will ensure all of our coaches ‘Are In’ and are committed to developing young athletes into compassionate and respectful individuals and team members. We will ensure each player demonstrates the highest standards of RFU’s T.R.E.D.S (Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Sportsmanship) at all times on and off the pitch and external to the club grounds.
U11s is for children who start the School Year 6 in September 2022.
Training is held on Sundays through September to May and starts promptly at 9.45am for about an hour.
If inclement weather requires a cancellation of training during the season our method of communication is via our WhatsApp Group.
Please ensure that you have provided your details (see the head coach if not). Sessions will be interactive and fun throughout the season with the focus on contact skills.
It is essential all players own and wear a gumshield. Players will be turned away if they are without.
Please also make sure a parent remains pitch side during the whole session and players have drinks and snacks, as breaks will be taken. We very much welcome feedback and do feel free to speak to any of the coaches after any session.
