The CRFC U11s is open to all boys and girls in school year 6 from September 2019. The aim of the U11s is to provide a safe and fun environment for your son/daughter to learn to play rugby. We welcome players of all abilities so (even if your child has never touched a rugby ball before) come down and give the game a go! We have a great group of kids, parents and coaches and you will be sure of a warm welcome (Just give me a call to make sure we are playing at home first). .
This year our kids will develop their contact rugby skills (learning the basics of rucking, mauling and scrummaging) while continuing to focus on playing good evasive rugby. New Rules of play can be viewed here.[/url]ugbyAcademy/CourseResource/01/31/97/14/RFURegulation15Appendix3U92016-2017_English.pdf)
For newcomers, the first three sessions are free, so you can check that rugby and the club is right for your son or daughter. After which you and your child can join Chelmsford RFC and we register them as a player with the RFU. On becoming a member of the club your child will be eligible to play in competitive matches. We play a number of fixtures against clubs in Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk throughout the season, all in accordance with the new Rules of Play developed by the RFU.
Both training sessions and competitive matches are on Sunday mornings and last for about an 1.5hrs. Parents/carers are requested to remain at the sessions with their children. We also regularly take part in events with the mighty Saracens and with our own 1st team. We play 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 usually do!!).
PLEASE NOTE -All players must also bring an appropriate mouth guard or they will not be permitted to play. No exceptions! Finally, please take a few minutes to read our Mini's ethos (on the Minis news section). This will help you to decide if this is the right club for you.
