Macclesfield Rugby Under 9s

It’s all about having fun whilst learning and improving on the basic skills and core values of the game at Macclesfield Rugby Under 9s: teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline & sportsmanship. Macclesfield Rugby Under 9’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.

Support our boys: Macclesfield Minis and Junior 500 club

The Mini & Junior Macclesfield rugby section is running a 500 club with proceeds spent on the Mini & Junior Section. This is a great way to support your club and stand a chance of winning a prize – a win, win!! Each ticket costs £1 per month (there is no Maximum amount of tickets you can buy), so for the cost of a pint of beer you can have 4 tickets and 4 chances to win every month.
The prizes are split as follows: 50% of the proceeds go to the Mini & Junior Section to be spent on the children and 50% of the proceeds as prizes. There are 4 monthly draw prizes made of 80% of the prize fund with the remaining 20% going towards a yearly accumulator. All you need to do is complete the linked Direct Debit form and hand it in to Jonathan at the Rugby Club or speak with Rob Oliver telephone: 07835 775955 email: Robert.oliver72@btinternet.com.

Player safety and expectations

The Macclesfield Rugby Under 9s 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.
