The season has now ended but we will be starting again on the first Sunday in September 2019 at 9.30am.
The U8's welcome all boys and girls in school year 3(and any older child in reception year who is 5 years old before 31st December 2018). We meet every Sunday through the season at 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.
