Rugby really is an all inclusive game for all and at Folkestone Rugby Club we welcome both new and experienced players!!
An under 9 player is a player who has reached the age of 8 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.
The Under 9 age group is the first introduction to contact in which players start to tackle including holding the player. A diagram showing the progression of rules at each age group can be found HERE
Under 9s 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!!
Boots are required and make sure that children must be wrapped up appropriately for the conditions. The rugby contact and gum shields along with other kit can be purchased via the club shop.
