MRUFC Under 11’s would love to see any boys or girls (born between 1st September 2009 – 31st August 2010) who are interested in trying out rugby for the first time, or indeed have played at another club or at school 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 or fixtures at the Club when we are playing at home – {See fixtures and training below for details.}

This season we introduce kicking to the game! And it will be our third season of playing full contact matches, we have tackling, the ruck, maul and uncontested Scrum form parts 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”

Matches are usually on  Sunday mornings, with the very occasional Saturday morning or Friday night game. We also have training sessions on Wednesday evenings and on a Saturday focusing on core skills. Saturday 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. All training sessions and matches will be communicated and managed through the Teamer App.

**Training and fixtures will be confirmed once Covid-19 restrictions allow**

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 Wellies, kit or boots in the clubhouse, and only well-behaved dogs on leads. {Dogs are allowed at the club but must be on leads at all times and are not allowed on any playing surface.}

Subscriptions and RFU Registrations :

We allow a couple of initial sessions while a child ensures they want to continue before paying subs, but no matches will be played until a child is fully assessed by coaches and deemed to be safe and competent to play.

Registration has MANY benefits:

    Playing subscriptions and coaching

    Family Club Membership (no voting rights)

    10% discount for the Clubhouse Bar

    RFU Insurance

ALL PLAYERS MUST ALSO BE RFU REGISTERED. Please contact Ruth (contact details at top of page) if you have any questions about subs, Club or RFU registration. 

Support our kids by joining the MRUFC One club :

The One Club is a great way to raise money for the Club and in turn your child benefits.

We are asking that parents buy £5 worth of tickets every month (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:

– Pitch Drainage                                                – New Balls

– Post Protectors                                                 – New kit bags for age groups

– Container to house the training gear           – Drinking bottles for the kids

– First aid kits                                                   – Signs 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 11’s 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. 

Kindest regards,

Under 11’s Coaching Team – Mike, Ruth, Paul, Simon, Tristan, Lloyd and all our “Blue Leaders”
