Welcome to the Under 8's team !
We are a friendly bunch of kids, parents & coaches, currently supporting the children to play tag rugby and develop their rugby skills. This is our last year of non-contact so lots to get through.
The aims of this year will be to build on the game play and skills we started last year, and to increase the children’s understanding of position and space on the pitch and to recognise that they will only be successful if they all work as a team and support each other during play.
Training is on Sunday mornings from 10-11am, and each session is planned in advance by our volunteer coaches, and lead by Head Coach Richard Sisson. Typically sessions will involve a warm up, some skills drills and a game of tag. Then at 11 (by popular demand from the kids!) we always have a fun game of Bulldog for those who wish to stay and have a bit of fun. Training is at Wymondham Rugby Club (currently Tuttles Lane, moving to Barnards Fields late Oct 2018 onwards).
New players are very welcome - please do come along, or contact one of the Coaching team if you would like more information.
During the season we are signed up for various local rugby festivals, where the children get chance to play against other local U8 teams, in a tournament style morning. We share these opportunities out so all children get a fair chance to play.
We aim to deliver training inline with the core values of rugby: Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship
