Rugby really is an all inclusive game and at Folkestone Rugby Club we welcome both new and experienced players...
An Under 8 player is a player who is 8 years old before 1st September of that season.
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 8s play tag rugby to develop basic skills before progressing to contact later on. A basic diagram showing the progression of rules at each age group can be found HERE
The Under 8s 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 any 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.
