Rugby really is an all inclusive game!!
At Folkestone Rugby Club we welcome both new and experienced players from the Under 6 level upwards. Being an Under 6 means that they must already have reached the age of 5 as of 1st September. Players cannot start playing in competitive games however until the age of 7.
We take a player focused approach to develop teamwork, respect, discipline, technical ability and social skills through RFU approved training techniques developed mainly to ensure that players have fun. All of this is delivered by RFU qualified coaches.
Under 6 and 7s play tag rugby to develop basic skills before progressing to contact later on. A diagram showing the progression of rules at each age group can be found HERE
The Under 6 and 7s train each Sunday from 10am until 12pm between September and May. Contact one of the coaching team or check the fixtures page and drop down when we are training. You can join straight in and we'll be glad to welcome you!!
No specialist kit is required at this level, boots are preferred and make sure that children are wrapped up appropriately for the conditions. The rugby is non-contact but if needed a gum shield along with other kit can be purchased via the club shop.
