2021/22 Fixture List

Heading into the new season, we are looking forward to playing non-contact tag matches. This season it’s still all about having fun while continuing to develop the basic skills of rugby and the core values of the game:

  • Teamwork
  • Respect
  • Enjoyment
  • Discipline
  • Sportsmanship

Our first priority is always to have happy, confident, safe and engaged players.

We are privileged to have a great group of players and very supportive parents, hopefully you are all looking forward to the new season.

We would love to see any girls or boys who are interested in trying out rugby for the first time, or have played at another club before. If you want to know more, please get in touch (team contact details below) and come to see us!

OUR OBJECTIVES:

  1. Provide a safe, fun and social environment for our players, where they will develop a passion for the game of rugby.
  2. We will prioritise their growth as young people as much as the development of their rugby ability.
  3. We will work with our parents to ensure that everyone involved in the MRUFC U8s team enjoys the experience.
  4. We will adhere to the RFU “Kids First” principles and encourage our parents to support us by doing the same.
  5. We will support and encourage our players to maximise their potential and reach the highest level.

YOUR COMMITMENT:

Players & Parents are expected to adhere to the Club’s code of conduct.

TRAINING AND MATCHES:

Training and matches take place on Sunday mornings, either at the club or at away fixtures. All training and matches are managed through TEAMER (download from Teamer ).

PLAYING KIT:
Kit required:
  • Boots – either with studs if playing on grass or trainers suitable for astroturf
  • Gum shields/mouth guards are not required at tag rugby and tend to be a distraction.
  • We want our players to be comfortable and recommend long sleeved skins (top and legs), warm hat and gloves suitable for playing rugby in colder weather.
  • To minimise equipment we are not using bibs at present therefore please ensure players have a white tshirt (or their shirt is reversible to white)
Kit mandatory for matches:
  • MRUFC playing top (in the O’Neill’s on-line store, the jersey is labelled “Macclesfield RUFC Juniors Rugby Jersey Kids”)
  • MRUFC shorts
