Welcome to the LBRFC U11s page

Rugby is a fun game and our principal aim is to encourage children to embrace the fun and also teach them the core values of the game - TEAMWORK, RESPECT, ENJOYMENT, DISCIPLINE, SPORTSMANSHIP.  Whilst engaging them in sport, we want to build their confidence, and skills, and ensure that they get stuck in.

Training starts at 10am sharp at the club as do matches both home and away throughout the season. More information on fixtures can be seen below.

The Mini & Junior section is run entirely by volunteers be it in a coaching, administrating or even supervisory capacity...and it is extremely rewarding.

If you would like to help in any way then please speak to our coaches in the first instance.

  2. Triangular - Competitive style playing opportunity for three teams where equal player participation is the emphasis. Focus is on maximising all your player’s involvement, development and enjoyment rather than the score.
  3. Festival - Competitive round-robin playing opportunity where equal team and player participation is the emphasis. Scores may be recorded but winning doesn’t affect your ongoing participation as every team plays the same appropriate number of matches.
