TROPHY BASH REPORT- Friday 16th May
Many thanks to all the parents, brothers, sisters and grandparents who turned up for the macclesfield rugby under 6′s trophy bash it was a proper old school rugby club family affair we hope you all enjoyed it. All the lads looked overjoyed to be rewarded for there efforts over the last season with individual trophies and occasional stories of some boys even sleeping with them that evening have surfaced!!!!!!
COACHES FURTHER IMPROVEMENT TRAINING – 17/3/14
As you already know all the coaches of the Macclesfield rugby Under 7′s are new to the roles. We are all enthusiastic about teaching rugby but are also aware of the need to constantly improve our own coaching skills. On Monday night we all attended a “Start Coaching TAG Rugby” Course at MRUFC the aims of the course are below.
- An understanding of how to deliver a safe and enjoyable practical session.
- Knowledge of how to coach and improve skills through games.
- An understanding of the application of a game-sense approach.
- Knowledge of the rules of tag rugby.
- The ability to apply of the rules of tag rugby (refereeing).
The course is run by the RFU and was a very enjoyable evening for all. It is very hands on with all the coaches actually taking part in a training session and games so we could try first hand what we are asking the lads to do. It was all very competitive and we got a massive amount from the course and gained lots of new idea’s for training and clarified some area’s that we were unsure of. We immediately put some of our new learning into play on Sunday and hope you continue to see improvements in the way we coach going forward. As ever if parents have any questions or concerns they can approach any of the coaches after a session.
TRAINING NEWS 23/3/14
Well we had the full range of weather on Sunday at Priory Park for the Macclesfield rugby under 6′s: wind, sunshine, rain and hailstone’s. Despite this we had a fantastic turnout thanks to all the parents for continuing to bring the lads down in all weathers! It was also fantastic to see the increase in numbers we have coming up to the clubhouse after training it really gives the boys a bit of extra time to get to know each other. There is a selection of food and hot drinks available.

FLAG DAY 25/1/2014
Despite the weathers best attempt nothing was dampening the spirits of the Macclesfield rugby under 6′s who made it down to Priory Park for the Blues v Chester. The lads thoroughly enjoyed the flag waving and Theo was ecstatic to be mascot and presented with a signed ball. Big thanks to the Under 7′s for sharing the flag day with us.
It would be great to see a few more lads up in the Macclesfield Rugby clubhouse after training they get chance to continuing bonding in a more social environment. Its also a great opportunity for coaches and parents to chat as well. Coffee, Tea, hot chocolate and food are available and if that doesn’t persuade you the bar is also open!!! Hopefully the lads will soon be getting meal tickets on a regular basis as well.
Joining / Try the Game:
It was great to see a few new faces this week and we are always looking for new players at the macclesfield rugby under 7′s, and happily welcome all. It would be great if current players could invite friends along to try it. New starters wishing to try the game out are encouraged to come along to training on sundays at 10.15am on the astroturf pitch to the left of the clubhouse. At Under 6 level we don’t play competitive games. Its all about having fun while starting to learn the basic skills and core values of the game teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline & sportsmanship.

Player safety and expectations
Macclesfield rugby Under 7′s request all players must have a responsible adult present for all training 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 boys 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.
