Welcome to the Haslemere Rugby Under 9s, school year 4, from complete beginners to seasoned experts, all are welcome. Girls and Boys! Our friendly coaches will help you learn that sport is fun, you can achieve more working as a team and will develop your personal skills and potential as a player.
The new season starts on Sunday 2nd September 2018 - we meet every Sunday morning at the Club grounds between 10.00am – 12.00pm although please always check the fixtures section to find out where we will be. We are happy for you to come along and just try out without commitment for the first couple of sessions. There is no requirement to go and spend a fortune on kit - all you need is a gum shield and some boots and you can give it a go, although don’t forget to dress appropriately for the weather; hats, gloves, waterproofs and layers if it is cold and wet, and bring a drink and snack.
We aim to provide a safe, fun environment for children to appreciate that rugby is a far superior game to football!
The U9s is for anyone who turns 9 years old between the beginning of September and the end of August - just like the academic year (Year 4). Please come along and you will be made very welcome.
We play competitive matches, tournaments, and friendly away fixtures as well as home training. You can see the fixtures list within this website under Teams/Minis/U9 fixtures. This year we are going up to 7-a-side team sizes and playing contact rugby for the first time!
When you bring your child along we ask that you remain to watch them or by all means offer to help with some of the drills if you are able. Ensure that they are warm and have a change of clothes as well as a drink and a snack.
We take great care of your children and all coaches are DBS checked. Insurance is provided through the club as long as club membership is completed. Parents are encouraged to volunteer to help in any way which they can, coaching, admin, and in particular first aid – if you are qualified please let us know.
We look forward to seeing you!
