It’s all about having fun while starting to learn the basic skills and core values of the game at Macclesfield Rugby Club Under 7′s: teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline & sportsmanship. Macclesfield Rugby Club Under 7′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. We are always looking for new players and anyone interested should contact Amanda or Rick who’s details can be found on the left.

Winnington Park Away Match report and Player of the Week Oct 27th

Macclesfield Rugby Under 7′s had there first away fixture at Winnington Park on Sunday despite half term we still fielded 17 players in 3 teams. Winnington had a few more players but 3 teams also. It was also noted they also had two beautifully marked out pitches with crisp white lines making it much easier for players and referee than just cones (We have been already talking to the club about marked pitches and hope to have some soon). Play got under way and Macclesfield looked the better organised teams especially in defence (Summer training has definitely helped us get the edge). The purple team (Sam, Jack, Theo, Oscar, Ethan) in particular were tagging ferociously at times and driving Winnington backwards and eventually turning the ball over. Throughout the course of the morning some fantastic individual tries were scored however as coaches we love to see players working together to create tries and  particular mention goes to Mathew Dowd who’s support play was excellent and resulted in him combining with Austin Keogh in open play to score a wonderful try. Player of the Week was as ever a very difficult decision but this week Luke was awarded the trophy after scoring some fantastic solo tries and also working very hard in defence. Well done Luke. Big thanks also to Winnington Park for hosting us.

Manchester Festival Match Report Oct 12th

Both teams at Manchester played extremely well! By far out shining some of the other clubs in their organisation and passing skills (well done Mike!) although we weren’t keeping score it did look as though we would have won or drawn all of our games.

Also I’d like to point out excellent behaviour from the boys off the pitch it was a long day for them and all were great in between games and very sporting as we had the chance to get an extra game in if we could lend a player to west park and all of the boys were happy to accommodate so we could get extra game time an all round great day and great support from the parents as well.

Special mention has to go to Austin who also picked up The Sportsman Ship Award for helping an opponent up off the floor after a collision.

Flag Day Blues v Tynedale Report Oct 11th

What a fantastic turnout we had for our first official Macclesfield Rugby Club Under 7′s flag day. Massive thanks to all the parents for bringing the players down we hope you enjoyed the day as much as the lads did. Special mention to Alfie who was official mascot. The Blues started well against Tynedale but unfortunately no amount of extra support and enthusiastic flag waving from the Under 7′s could  prevent Macc eventually going down 24 – 60 to Tynedale.

Macclesfield Rugby Under 7′s Match Report and Player of the week September 28th

With Priory Park bathed in sunshine, Macclesfield rugby club under 7′s were delighted to welcome Lymm for a fantastic morning of rugby. The coaches were really delighted to see all players finally getting the opportunity to use all that knowledge learnt through  under 6′s winter training  and summer training and apply it to a match situation. It was great to see everyone getting stuck in and enjoying themselves. Overall, the teams were pretty evenly matched, and we saw some great running, some super tries, and some committed defending. Well done to all players, parents and coaches for getting us this far.

Sale Sharks v London Welsh Game Visit  Report 20/9/2014

Wow what a day. As you are aware Macclesfield Rugby Under 7′s  had 10 places to go and watch Sale Sharks play London Welsh at the AJ BELL stadium. Sale scored very early in the game but London Welsh rallied and half time score was 15-3 to Sales advantage. Just before halftime we were called up to prepare to go on the pitch. Quick photo shoot under the posts with Sharky (Mascot) then it was time to play. It was amazing to see the 2 x teams on the pitch  totally unfazed by the 4,953 fans  in the ground and some good attack and defence skills were on display.  All too son it was time to finish and take our seats for the second half. Initially it was tightly contested but Sale got stronger and stronger and with three quick tries at the end final score was SALE SHARKS 46 London Welsh 8.

All concerned had a fantastic day and I can highly recommend the day out. We will be looking to do a similar thing in the near future to give those that missed out this time the opportunity.

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.

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:

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  to the left of the clubhouse near the AstroTurf pitch. Its all about having fun while starting to learn the basic skills and core values of the game teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline & sportsmanship.

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.
