The Covid-19 Pandemic has led the RFU to make amendments this season, so U7s won’t be having competitive matches until January. However, we can have joint training sessions with other clubs to introduce them to other teams.
U7s play tag rugby, rather than full contact rugby and this allows us, as coaches, to hone their basic rugby skills – things like running forwards and passing backwards – all whilst having fun and instilling the 5 Core Values of Rugby:
If your child wants to come down and join in the fun, please get in touch by clicking the link in the table below!
Both players and parents are expected to observe and obey the Club’s code of conduct:
A parent or carer must attend each session (training and matches).
|Coaching Team||Louis Smith, Simon Cooper & Kieran Merriman|
|Team Admin||Katie Ellis (get in touch here!)|
|First Aider||Louis Smith|
TRAINING AND MATCHES:
Activities take place on Sunday mornings, either at the Priory Park for home matches and training or away fixtures (and at the moment, joint training sessions) at other clubs.
All training and matches are managed through TEAMER (download Teamer).

Please note: Gum shields/mouth guards are not required at tag rugby and tend to be a distraction
