Cranbrook Rugby Club - Under 8

Welcome to Cranbrook Rugby Club - Under 8s (Year 3)

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 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.

Unders 8s play a non contact format called Tag Rugby, where tackles are executed by removing velcro tags attached to Player's belts.

Come give us a TRY.
