We routinely train either at home in Cams Alders or occasionally away at other local clubs, from 1000 - 1130 every Sunday and participate in regional tournaments during the better weather of Autumn and Spring. The Under 10s format is full contact where tackling, rucking and mauling are part of matchplay. Other technical disciplines are incrementally introduced in subsequent age groups. Please don't be put off - we welcome all and steadily introduce those new players to allow them to join in with a safe and enjoyable team sport.

The coaching team aim to continue the development from previous age grades, by refining ball handling skills, teamwork and some of the rules and tactics used in Rugby Union, but the primary aim is to have fun. we welcome all new players throughout the season and our selection criteria for tournaments is based on participation and attendance at training sessions.
We are inclusive and do not select squads based on ability. Please do contact us by email or feel free to just come along and join us on a Sunday morning. all are welcome. As player safety underpins everything, we do insist on mouthguards before players get involved in the contact elements of training/matchplay.
