Sunday's at 9.30am at top end of training pitch (far left from clubhouse).
Our season starts Sunday 3rd September and runs through to end-April.
The U8's welcome all boys and girls in school year 3. We meet every Sunday through the season, and when at home for training we'll be at top of training pitch from 9:30am to play a range of fun, non contact, tag-rugby related games.
Our games are designed to build the child’s confidence, encourage their sense of teamwork and develop their core agility, balance & coordination through teaching the fundamentals of the game of rugby. We welcome boys and girls of all abilities, and unlike the older age groups, we don’t play any competitive matches.
The 1 hour sessions are led by club coaches and supported by a team of enthusiastic, DBS checked, volunteer parents/carers. Parents/carers are requested to remain at the session with their children.
For newcomers, the first three sessions are free, so you can check that both rugby, and the club, are right for your son or daughter. After which you and your child will be asked to join Chelmsford RFC and register your child with the RFU.
We train in all but the very worst weathers, so please make sure your child comes dressed to remain warm and dry through the session (they can always take layers off). Football / rugby boots are essential, especially when the ground starts to get slippery; as is a drinks bottle to ensure they stay hydrated. You should expect them to get good and muddy (they always do!!).
New players are always warmly welcomed so if your child would be interested in having a try, come along on a Sunday morning (after September, please do check fixtures schedule first or get in touch with myself or Shelley).
Training takes place in Coronation Park every Sunday morning from September 3rd 2017 - we start at 9:30am (so please aim to arrive before 09:15 in order to register).
Please also see our mini's ethos about how we play rugby at Chelmsford which applies across all our age groups.
If you have any questions or queries, please do get in touch on sms/email/find one of us on a Sunday morning.
