There are a few roles we would like parents to help with and take some of the workload off the coaches.
We are looking for a parent or parents to help with writing match reports for the website and the local newspaper. Its not a time consuming task or requires knowledge of rugby. We just like to record the match results and who scored the tries. The players do like to see their names in the paper and on the website
We require a team manager to help with the administration and welcome any new players to the squad and ensure they become RFU registered and have a player ID card to allow them to play competitive games.
The under 10's had a great start to the season losing just three games up to the Xmas break. The district festival was a great success finishing as joint winners with Huddersfield. They beat Keighley, Baildon, Wharfedale, Skipton and drew with Huddersfield. December was mainly a washout with the weather. January was not much better due to the floods but the squad muscled in on some games away making up 3 way fixtures. The last three months February - April saw the squad finish the season strongly losing only 3 more games. The steady stream of new players has seen the squad grow to over 20 players which allowed the coaches to run 2 sides the lions and the tigers plus run competitive training sessions which has improved player development.
Under 10's playing record

Leading try scorer was Leo Kemp 27 tries, followed by Ollie Morris 15 tries and Arthur Davies 10 tries

This seaon the squad play 9 a side contact rugby and there are a few new rules to work on in training. There is now competition for the ball at the tackle or break down in play. The mini maul and mini ruck is introduced with ball carrier plus 2 players or tackler plus 2 players allowed to contest for the ball. The 3 man scrum are also allowed to contest at the feed. Players are allowed to kick the ball and call for a Mark. So quite a lot of new skills to develop this season.
We are always looking for new players to join and boost the squad numbers to be able to run two teams so everyone gets a game. During training sessions the squad is often split into 2 groups, the experienced players and the new player development squad. This allows the new players to learn the basic skills at their own pace and when up to speed can transfer to the experienced player squad.
So if you are an experienced player or new to the game just come down on a Sunday morning 10am - Noon September to April for some free taster sessions before deciding to join. We are based in Copley and please check the under 11s fixture list to see when they are training or have home games, remember some weeks they play away games at other clubs.
The under 11s play 9 a side midi contact rugby on a half pitch. On match day Sundays the squad meet at 10am and train/warm up till 11am when the matches start. Some Sundays are dedicated to training/player development, these are on average one Sunday per month (see fixtures on the menu bar).
