ARFC Under 9's
Welcome to the U9's page
We have a fabulous group of boys and girls here who have fun each Sunday morning taking part in the world's greatest team game - RUGBY!
Sean and I have been coaching rugby at ARFC since our sons were 6 years old (now nearly 9yrs they like to tell us) with many of the boys and girls continuing through the age groups with us. I am RFU Level 1(Coach) certified with many years of playing experience (in the dim and increasingly distant past). The aim at this age is to teach to the children the core values we adhere to in rugby (teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship). We do this through training and fixtures/competitions with local clubs. At this age we also start to introduce the first element of contact into gameplay which is the tackle and to do it in a safe and enjoyable way.
Come and join in ;-)
