HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE TO JOIN?
To start on Sunday 4th September 2016 you need to be 6 before the end of September 2016 (no more new players will be accepted after 25th September 2016).
If you turn 6 between 1st October 2016 and 31st December 2016 you can then join at the second intake on Sunday 8th January 2017 (no more new players will be accepted after the 29th January 2017).
Sorry guys, if you turn 6 after 31st December 2016 you will have to wait until next season (Sunday 3rd September 2017 - tbc).

No Training on Sunday 22 January 2017 - back at the club on Sunday 29 January with registration commencing at 8.30am for a prompt start of 9.00am
Remember when coaches are selecting squads they are looking for the 5 'A's'. Good rugby players have and always will display the 5 'A's':-
**** PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR TAG BELTS ****
We train from 9am (sharp) to 10.15am every Sunday. We play 'MIXED tag' rugby (no contact allowed) following RFU guidelines. This is a safe and enjoyable introduction designed to introduce children to a lifetime of rugby. We aim to ensure that ALL our squad reach their maximum potential through fun training sessions with qualified coaches with particular focus on ensuring the children are having FUN!!
A typical Sunday training session is as follows:-
8.45am - Arrive (with tag belts on) and warm up under coaches guidance
9.00am - Rugby skills development
9.45am - Game play
10.15am - finish
TOP TIPS FOR ALL U7 PLAYERS AND PARENTS
Your child will be given a tag belt when they attend their first training session. Please ensure your child arrives each week in the appropriate kit and with their tag belt on.
THE ESSENTIAL KIT YOU NEED IS TO PLAY:
Rugby or football boots
OPTIONAL KIT BUT STRONGLY ADVISED:-
'Skins' - underlayers for the cold days
Fingerless rugby gloves
Both the above are available from the M&J Shop or JSSK sports shops in town.
FINALLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY.....
WE TRAIN COME RAIN, SNOW OR SHINE SO PLEASE MAKE SURE
EVERY PLAYER IS 'LAYERED UP" FOR TRAINING AND HAS A WOOLY HAT
(NO BOBBLES!!) - THE CLUB VERSION AVAILABLE FROM THE SHOP
ON A SUNDAY MORNING IS A GOOD OPTION.
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT IF THE PLAYERS ARE GOING TO ENJOY WINTER TRAINING - SORRY TO SOUND LIKE A NAG BUT A T-SHIRT AND
SHORTS IS NOT ENOUGH - WE CAN ALWAYS TAKE LAYERS OFF BUT
SHIVERING PLAYERS ARE UNHAPPY BUNNIES!!
PLEASE MAKE SURE EACH PLAYER HAS A CHANGE OF CLOTHES
AND A TOWEL ON WET DAYS - IT REALLY HELPS AFTERWARDS
FINALLY, GUM SHIELDS - THEY ARE A MUST AND ARE FOR THE
PLAYERS WELFARE - TAG RUGBY IS NOT A CONTACT SPORT BUT, AS
IN ALL SPORTS, ACCIDENTS CAN HAPPEN.
"BOIL IN THE BAG" GUM SHIELDS CAN BE BOUGHT
FROM AS LITTLE AS £5 AND THEY DO HELP
FROM THE SECOND TRAINING SESSION OF THE SEASON WE MUST
AND WILL OPERATE A "NO GUM SHIELD NO PLAY" RULE.
