Kids First Rugby is for players U6 – U12. Our U7/U8 play tag non-contact rugby, with the U9/U10/U11/U12 playing contact, so a gum shield is mandatory. The U7’s is an introduction season to tag non-contact rugby.

The U7s is open to children who will be going into Year 2 for the 2019/2020 school year. Unfortunately, HRFC cannot accommodate children not at school age for a number of reasons including safety.

Our coaching philosophy is based on 3 very important points:
1. To recognise the importance of fun and enjoyment as reasons to play
2. To be a positive role model to the children
3. To adhere to and promote the rugby values - Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Sportsmanship

It's important for parents to realise that rugby is a late specialist sport therefore at this age we apply a generalist approach to training kids in the sport.
We will focus on:
• Fun and more Fun
• Physical Development - Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed
• Tactical Skills - Use of Space, Running Forward, Support and Continuity
• Technical Skills - Evasion, Ball Handling and Passing, 1v1 situations

The U6s do not play matches as a team against other teams. The training session will consist of a series of fun and practical exercises that that will build their skills and confidence.

WE WELCOME ANY NEW PLAYERS AT ANY STAGE OF THE SEASON to come along and try the sport out for a few weeks without any commitment to join. Just ask at the club on a Sunday morning for the U7’s and someone will direct you (we are normally in the top corner of the field.
The season will start Sunday September 2nd 2018 at Hinckley Rugby Club from 10:30 – 11:30am. Training will continue each Sunday from 10:30am-11:30am unless otherwise notified.

The website is the main communication channel for the club so we ask for all parents to please register to receive regular club updates.

If you are interested in joining our great group of players, just turn up or email with your child’s name, age, school year and the next training session you can attend? Whether your child joins in the session, or just comes along to spectate, it will be good to see you at the club.

If watching your child and not taking part is frustrating, each age group has a demand for many helpers whether on or off the pitch. The club will fund any training and provide DBS checks for any parent wishing to follow their child through the age groups.
Clothing; please wear boots or trainers too if the ground is really dry, sports shirt and shorts, and bring a sports bottle full of water. A gum shield is NOT mandatory for U7s. Further clothing advice will be provided in season.
