10th Feb 2018. Layers, Layers - during this foul weather, please ensure that the players are well wrapped-up with plenty of layers of clothing. Gloves are a great advantage as well; any will do, the ordinary wool ones still retain heat even if wet. Please ensure that the children have, at the very least, a hot drink before setting out. It is very difficult for our coaches to keep youngsters warm and enjoying their rugby if they're cold at the start..
PLEASE regularly check our webpage, this will be the primary means of communicating with parents or carers & will detail our training and travel schedule.
The U8s train on Pitch 2 on Sunday mornings, with registration starting at 8:30am and finishing at approximately 10am. Please ensure your child signs in with the manager at 8.45am for a prompt 9am start to the session.
Parking is available on Pitch 3, please park tidily and considerately and do not park in Jersey Bowl car park!
Any variations to Sunday training, due to weather, events on the pitch etc. will be posted to the webpage by 8pm on a Saturday evening.
No hoodies or zips, football/rugby boots (no metal studs) are required for outdoor sessions, trainers for the the beach or Les Ormes sessions.
Although at this age level tag rugby is played, gumshields/mouthguards are required. For the safety of your child and the other children, a strict no gumshield/mouthguard no play rule will be adhered to.
New JR M&J kit is available to purchase in the M&J kit shop which is located in the container Adjacent to Pitch 4, not from the club shop. The M&J shop can now also accept card payment as well as cash and cheques. A boot exchange is available in the M&J shop too. There is also a second hand kit shop on the first Sunday of every month operating from the changing room next to the M&J office facing Pitch 2.
Appropriate clothing to the weather is required, you know your children
better than we do, but if they are cold, they will not enjoy themselves. Please, please ensure they have plenty of layers and a beany hat; gloves are a bonus too!
Water, water, water and water!
While we have a team of coaches on the pitch looking after your children,
we are not responsible for your children! Accidents do occasionally happen and therefore it is essential that a parent/carer is present pitchside, if you will be somewhere else on club grounds or if another parent is taking responsibility for your child, this is fine but please let the mnager know at the beginning of the session and leave a mobile contact number with her.
While we are lucky enough to be based at the JRFC, coffee, and bacon rolls will be available after training.
