Rugby for all the Family!
Newbury RFC Mini Section provides rugby for children from U6’s (Newbury Roebucks) to the U12’s (year 7’s at school).
We pride ourselves on welcoming players and their families regardless of perceived ability or skill level; our excellent teams of RFU qualified coaches will all ensure that alongside learning and development of new skills, each and every player represents the club competitively and, most importantly, has FUN.
Training takes place every Sunday during the season, Aug 31st 2014 – May 1st 2015, at Monks Lane. The sessions start at 10am and finish between 11 and 12 noon; this is dependent on age group.
Kit required is a pair of boots with regulation round studs (PLEASE NOTE THAT BLADE STYLE STUDS ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN) and practical clothing. We do try and train or play throughout the entire season so weather appropriate clothing, especially for our youngest players, is a must. The RFU recommend the wearing of gum guards for the U8’s age group and these become mandatory from U9 and above.
All new members are encouraged to take several weeks of sampling rugby at Newbury before deciding to become full members,details for which can be found on the web site.
If you have any questions about rugby at Newbury please contact us direct and we will ensure that we introduce you to the relevant age group manager who will ensure that your first few weeks at Newbury RFC are as enjoyable and informative as possible.
Did we mention that you will have FUN and that there are hot dogs?!
