Youth & Mini Rugby

Why play rugby?

Clon_SmallSome say greatest team game of them all, it is the one game suitable for all shapes and sizes, and should be a never ending enjoyable adventure!

Play for fitness, buzz, teamwork and friends. Fitness is good for lifestyle in general and helps clear the mind; buzz comes from competing against your peers age-wise in a controlled  environment; teamwork will win more than individuals – all players are individuals with strengths and weaknesses, but teamwork is about getting the sum of the total to be more than the sum of the individual parts; and all of this is attempted/achieved with your own friends and peers – friendships which will continue long after the playing together finishes.

The end of season Minis Fun Day was held on Sunday 11th May – details and report here.

Our aim is to encourage the playing of rugby in this age group and in doing so we want to promote fun for both players and coaches, to help young boys and girls develop

(a) Physically,
(b) Psychologically &
(c) Socially

whilst recognizing that young people are not miniature adults, and generally try to do their best. PLAYERS FIRST, WINNING SECOND.

When is training? Training takes place on Sunday mornings at 10.30am to 12.00pm (some older kids also train Wednesdays at 6.30pm). All mini’s training is in the club.  Tea and coffee is available for parents in the Clubhouse.

What to bring? Gum shield and boots. You should always bring additional clothing like a tracksuit in case of cold weather – it is easy to take off a layer, but you can’t put one on if you don’t have it with you! Best athletic practices recommends that you bring your own drink (water is fine) and snack (apple or banana fine also) to take immediately after training/matches finish to feed the muscles to aid best recovery and development.

What does it cost? Mini’s and Youth membership costs €60.00 (1 child), €80 (2 children) and a maximum of €100.00 per family (3+ children).
