OC Rugby started its Mini section in September 2011 and has gone from strength to strength! Our sixth season will kick off on Sunday 11th September 2016 and will run through to May 2017.
We aim to have at least one coach for every six children and are always very keen to encourage more help and participation on and off the pitch from those parents who want to join in. So if you want to qualify as a coach, or help in any way, please ask Simon or at the Club on a Sunday.
So it's every Sunday morning in the season (September to May) at the OC Club, just turn up and join in! Open from 10am with a prompt start at 10.30, finishing by Midday at the latest. The cost is an annual subscription of £130, or £6 per child per session, with a portion of chips at the end (hopefully that won't spoil lunch!) and a free OC Rugby t-shirt when you first start.
The club is fully accredited by the RFU & therefore enjoys support from the RFU and Surrey County RFU, which means organised festivals, RFU training & coaching, and long-standing, carefully developed guidelines on running a rugby club. It also means that we have demonstrated a commitment to providing a safe & enjoyable playing environment for young people.
OC Rugby welcomes boys and girls aged from 4 - 11, whether or not they have played rugby in any form before. Nowadays mini rugby is non-contact up to the age of 9, with tag and touch variations, and the full game is slowly and safely introduced so that the children are properly prepared by fully-qualified coaches. As the children get older we will continue their development into junior, youth & ultimately senior rugby.
Do you have a son or daughter aged 4 - 11? If so and you want to see what The Great Game is all about, register your interest with Simon and come along - or just pitch up anyway, you will be very welcome. Don't worry if you miss the start of the season; last year we had new kids joining every single week of the year - it's never too late!
