Thanks for looking at the OCs for the development of your child’s rugby skills. The Under 10 age group is open to any boy or girl who is in Year 5 of school.
It is a great way for your child to develop their skills whilst running around, being active and above all having FUN, enjoying structured games that will keep them interested and excited.
It is about creating an environment where the children start to understand the key values that rugby provides - TEAMWORK, RESPECT, ENJOYMENT, DISCIPLINE, SPORTSMANSHIP.
This season the main differences will be the introduction of competition for the ball in the shape of mini rucks & mauls and the nearest 3 players to the breakdown to form a “scrum”. In addition more tactical awareness and decision making will be introduced to the players to aid their development.
Team sizes increase to 8-a-side.
This age group will have joint training games against other teams both home and away, enjoy “triangular” (3-way tournaments) and enter festivals throughout the season.
Every Sunday from the first weekend of September through to May we start promptly at 10:30 (we suggest that you arrive soon after 10:00 to park and register). The session lasts for about 1¼ hours and is followed by free squash and hot chips for the kids. The bar is open throughout for tea / coffee / bacon butties, and of course beer / wine for the adults.
