WELCOME TO THE JUNIOR GIRLS
Bring on 2017/18!
We are delighted to have three girls teams this season: U13s, U15s and U18s. All teams play full contact rugby, with the U13s working on uncontested scrums and playing half a pitch length, and the U15s/U18s working on contested scrums, conversion kicks and playing a full pitch length. We strongly promote the RFU TREDS values amongst the girls. Both teams compete in the RFU Area Festivals and National Cup Competitions.
Our U13s are the RFU /Kent Area 3 winners of 2016!
Our U15s (part of A21s & TWells) are RFU/Kent Area 3 regional Cup Champions 2018!
We always welcome new girls to the team - simply email Tonya 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 all age groups.
This season we are also offering Tuesday sessions from 6-7 at the club. These are fitness through rugby games with a bit of rugby theory.
