Macclesfield Rugby Under 10’s 2017-2018

 
 

It’s all about having fun whilst learning and improving on the basic skills and core values of the game at Macclesfield Rugby Under 10s: teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline & sportsmanship. Macclesfield Rugby Under 10’s have a vibrant squad of players and a fantastic very committed coaching team. 

We always look to do lots of extra social activities to build team spirit as well.

Player safety and expectations

The Macclesfield Rugby Under 10s coaches request that all players must have a responsible adult present for all training sessions and matches.

We are lucky to have such well-behaved lads overall. However, we want a fun, competitive and most importantly safe environment and will therefore be strict in our encouragement of players to stop when the whistle blows, to listen/concentrate to coaches and to pay attention. Please reinforce this message on the way to the Club on a Sunday morning.

Many thanks,

Amanda and the Team.
