U8s Team Info

Welcome to the Under 8s Team

Age Group Manager : Emma Dinham

We follow on from what we have learnt in the under 7s but also welcome new comers to our squad. Both boys & girls are welcome to play.
We work towards the Rugby for all concept and our moto is “Attitude & Attendance over Ability”

Any child wishing to have a go is encouraged to come along and see if they like it, there is a £5 fee which covers 5 sessions giving children time to decide if they wish to continue so no pressure to join from the first session.

We train every Sunday throughout the season.
The children should be there by 9.45am ready for warm up at 10am and finish around 11.45am
Our normal training involves a warm up, various practice drills to improve key skills and of course some fun games as well as tag games.

Being warm and comfortable is obviously most important! Children need to come dressed for all weather. As the weather gets colder we advise that children wear layers of T-shirts or skins under rugby top or fleece, tracksuit bottoms, woolly hat and gloves, rugby/football boots or trainers. Please also bring a water bottle. Parents need to wrap up warm too and whilst we can offer warm refreshments from the club house at very reasonable prices, please ensure you are dressed for the weather as we require our parents to stay at pitch side and support their child!

Training will still take place if it is windy, cold or light rain. We gauge how the children are enjoying the session (the wetter and muddier generally creates more enjoyment!) and adjust the length of session accordingly. It is only when the pitches are absolutely waterlogged, frozen; or if it is raining heavily when coaching is cancelled.
If the session is cancelled then the manager will email and text you to let you know.

We look forward to seeing you soon…
