2012 - 13 Season - The Under 10's

After the major changes of last season when we moved into contact rugby, the transition to under 10's rugby are relatively small and insignificant. This season you play with a size 4 ball and we are adding contested scrums and line-outs and this will change the shape of the game and of those playing it. Possession a key element for all teams (there is an old saying if you have the ball your opposition cannot score but you have the opportunity to do so). Those in a position to do that, and indeed turn over opposition ball, will be difficult to beat. The game at this level requires strength, speed, determination, and fitness; it is this great combination of skills and attributes that makes rugby a great game for all people of all sizes. A team with all of these skills will be very hard to beat.

We have a very experienced team of 5 coaches with RFU Coaching qualifications. They will ensure all players of all abilities have a pleasurable rugby experience in a safe and controlled environment. There will be a number of players returning again this year but it would be great to see a few new arrivals. The emphasis is on enjoyment and team spirit through rugby; this team believes everyone should enjoy their rugby!
