Rugby is a fun game and our principal aim is to encourage children to embrace the fun and also teach them the ethos of the game… fair play and respect for your team mates, opponents and coaches.
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 above.
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 head coach below in the first instance.
