Macclesfield Rugby Under 10s would love to see any boys or girls who are interested in trying out rugby for the first time, or have indeed played at another club in the past.  So, if you want to know more, please either get in touch or if you prefer, just come on down to one of our training sessions at the Club on a Sunday morning at 10am when we are playing at home – see fixtures below for details.

This season will be our second season of playing contact matches, we now have the ruck, maul and uncontested 3 x man Scrum form part of the game. RFU Age Grade Rules Here

Above all it is about having fun while continuing to develop the basic skills and core values of the game: Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline & Sportsmanship. The core values will continue to be monitored and recognised with the awarding of “MRUFC Blue Laces” by our team of “Blue Leaders”

Following all home games and training sessions the clubhouse will be open for hot food and drinks. Please remember this facility is available for all to use both players and supporters so please ensure to drop in.

**Please ensure no muddy kit / boots in the clubhouse**

We also have training sessions on Wednesday evenings at 6pm and on a Saturday focusing on core skills. These sessions will be held at 1.30pm if the Senior 1st team are playing at home, so that the kids can ballboy/girl and we can all enjoy the matchday atmosphere. If the 1st team are playing away or have no game, we will train at 10am on Saturdays.

Support our boys: Macclesfield Minis and Junior 500 club

The M&J 500 club is a great was to raise money for the Mini & Junior section and in turn your child benefits.

We are asking people to buy £5 worth of tickets every month (so the cost of a beer or a glass of wine) numbers have fallen over the last 12 months so we are looking for some new members.


What we have spent the money on so far:

– Coaches jackets                                                – New Balls

– Post Protectors                                                 – New kit bags for age groups

– Container to house the training gear       – Tape for older age groups

– Ice packs for first aid kits                               – Sign for the clubhouse

– Food for touring teams                                  – Pendants and Shield for touring teams

– Website access for Coaches                         – Air horns and loud hailers for festivals


Player safety and expectations:

Macclesfield rugby Under 10s request all players must have a responsible adult present for all training and matches.

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.

Kindest regards,

Under 10’s Coaching Team – Mike, Ruth, Paul, Simon, Tristan, Lloyd and our “Blue Leaders”
