WELCOME TO THE JUNIOR GIRLS
Bring on 2016/17!
We are delighted to have two girls teams this season: U13 Girls and U15 Girls. Both teams play full contact rugby, with the U13s working on uncontested scrums and playing half a pitch length, and the U15s working on contested scrums, conversion kicks and playing a full pitch length. Team sizes vary, but typically we play U13s 6-9 a side and U15s 10 -13 a side. We strongly promote the RFU TREDS values amongst the girls. Both teams compete in the RFU Area 3 cup competitions.
Our U13s are the RFU /Kent Area 3 winners of 2016!
We also welcome U18s to training - we train jointly with a local team as we do not (yet) have a full team... watch this space!
We always welcome new girls to the team - simply email Tonya (manager) and show up on the day with gum shield, rugby boots, and water bottle in hand! New players are invited to come for 3 trial sessions before signing up. Please note players can only be selected to participate in matches if they are registered with the club.
All players must have rugby kit, at least one gum shield, boots with metal studs and a bottle of water.
TRAINING TIME AND VENUE
We train every Sunday morning from 10 am to 12 noon throughout the season at the club - Knole Paddock - and combine home training sessions with away fixtures and festivals for both age groups.
