All Age Grade Rugby Players Welcome
We welcome new members, both boys and girls, no matter what level. If you are looking for a new sport, just started playing at school or been playing for a year or two and just looking for a new club – please get in touch.
What can you expect?
Players will be taught the core skills of Rugby in a safe environment. Macclesfield R.U.F.C. is affiliated with the R.F.U. and the Mini and Junior Section prides itself on a Kids First approach to Rugby. We live and demonstrate the R.F.U.’s core values – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline & Sportsmanship.
We have a Kid’s First coaching philosophy, putting the child at the centre of coaching. We’re not interested in playing to win at all costs or forcing kids to do endless drills. We want kids to stay playing rugby for as long as they want to! They might be the next Tommy Taylor, or want to play social rugby for the 4th team – it matters not as long as they continue to enjoy their rugby.
Tag Rugby is played from U6s to U8s, whilst players develop their skills of running forwards, evasion, passing the ball, creating and using space and of course scoring tries! From U7 upwards the team will play non-competitive friendlies against local clubs (home and away).
Macclesfield R.U.F.C. trains all coaches on the RFU program to an appropriate level for each age group, from Rugby Ready through to ERCA awards.
We also have links to the 1st and 2nd XV and our nearest Premiership 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.
