Macclesfield Under 6’s 2018/19

UNDER 6’s INFORMATION 2018/19

Next Season U6’s will start on Sunday 2nd September 10:00 a.m. on the Astro at Macclesfield RUFC.

PLAYER REQUIREMENTS:

Girls and Boys welcome, players must be born between 1st September 2012 – 31st August 2013.

What can you expect?

Players will be taught the core skills of Rugby in a safe environment, at a National 2 North (4th tier) Rugby Club.  MRUFC is affiliated to the RFU and the Mini and Junior Section prides itself on a Kids First approach to Rugby.  We live and demonstrate the RFU’s core values – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline & Sportsmanship.

Tag Rugby is played from U6’s to U8’s, whilst players develop their skills of running forwards, evasion, passing the ball, creating and using space and of course scoring tries!  There are no “competitive” matches until U7’s due to RFU requirements.

MRUFC trains all coaches on the RFU programme to an appropriate level for each age group, from Rugby Ready through to RFU Level 2 or 3 coaches for the Junior teams.

We also have links to the 1st and 2nd XV (The Blues and Lions) and our nearest Premier Rugby Club, Sale Sharks, where the M&J section is a member of the 100 club and benefits from special festivals and half time tag tournaments at Premiership matches each season.

Kit

At under 6’s Club Kit is not essential as we understand kids and parents want to be sure rugby is the sport for them.  New kit will be available this season.

Player Safety and Expectations

We are lucky to have such well-behaved children 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.

Macclesfield Rugby Club requires that all players must have a responsible adult present for all training and matches.
