U9

WELCOME TO THE 2019/2020 UNDER 9s

(those starting year 4 in September 2019)

The TWRFC 2019/20 U9 squad comprises of boys and girls entering school year 4 at the start of the season, which runs September 2019 to April 2020 inclusive.

This season the Under 9’s will continue their rugby progression through the age grade rugby syllabus, training and playing in line with the RFU Core Values, and  increasing the pitch size and number of players on a team…. The most exciting thing for the kids is they can now begin contact rugby, with this year learning the art of the tackle.

In addition to weekly home training, we attend local tournaments and visit other clubs for joint training sessions.  Our first festival of the season will be our own, held on Sunday 13th October.  Matches at U9 consist of teams with 7 players and two substitutes.  Each player being able to play a minimum of 50% of the game.

We have a fantastic group of volunteer coaches with several of us RFU Qualified for coaching and refereeing.  If you would like to joint the coaching team, please have a chat with us after a session.

If you would like to know more about a taster session, how to join up, become a coach, or more about the club please contact Simon Hughes, Head Coach (via telephone 07917520599 or via email:  sgh.twrfc@gmail.com) or Matt George,  Team Manager (via telephone 07957 688246 or via email matthewgeorge@gmail.com)
