Ladies U11 – Taster Sessions This Sunday

After a very encouraging start for TWRFC Ladies U11s section a second taster session will be held on Sunday 26 Jan aimed at girls in Year 4,5 and 6.

The session is planned from 11:30am – 1:00pm on the 3G pitch at Tunbridge Wells Boys Grammar School, located by St. Johns Sports Centre (TN4 9TX).

The first session,on 12 January, attracted 15 girls and was run by Tammy Samuel, Head Coach of U13s and former England International supported by experienced players from the U13s squad and returning coach Julia Baldock.

The fun session started with a mix of warm-ups, assault course and relay races. From there the girls moved into a game of touch rugby so that the new girls could get used to running forwards and passing backwards.

“It was really fantastic to see so many girls at the session and to watch our more experienced Wells players coaching and encouraging the new girls” said Tammy. “This is just the first step in developing an U11 squad, we have more try out sessions planned and we have experienced coaches lined up to support the girls on their rugby journey”
