2018 U5-U7-U9-U11-U13 Mixed
All new players welcome! Rugby! It's for EVERYONE!
Our Beaconsfield Mini Rugby season runs from mid-May to the end of July. Players enjoy one fun practice per week and attend 5 local Jamborees. There is the possibility of attending 1 or 2 more jamborees if time permits. Throughout the season treats pop up at practice- juice boxes, pretzels, freezies are always refreshing after a hot day! We cap off the season with a BBQ and an end of season rugby 'fun' practice including the very popular Beaco obstacle course enjoyed by coaches and players alike! Come join us for a summer of fun!
Practices are held at Beaconsfield High School on Thursday evenings from 6-7:15 pm. First practice May 17th, 2018.
U5: Come join the rugby fun this summer in our U5 introduction to mini rugby playgroup! Our youngest mini's are the highlight of Thursday evening practice! Learning new skills and having fun is what this group is all about! BRFC works to maintain a 1:5 coach to player ratio in order to ensure an organized, safe and absolutely awesome environment for mini rugby fun!
U7& U9: Rugby skills-based training. Using the Rookie Rugby Guidelines for flag rugby, the U7 and U9 age grades will enjoy a summer full of team and skill building activities. A fantastic opportunity to learn the rules of the game while at the same time having a great practice with team mates! Emphasis on having fun and working as a team is key to our success at this level.
U11: Focus on rugby development, includes tackling (below the shoulders) in games. 8 players on the field during match play. Introduction of uncontested scrum 3v3. Tackling is progressively introduced throughout the season according to the Laws of Rugby and Rookie Rugby Guidelines.
U13: New this season! We are looking forward to this dynamic age category! The U13 Rookie Rugby Guidelines outline the natural progression of the game all the while encouraging the individuals development as a player! This new age grade offers the player an opportunity to experience 13 players a side, uncontested scrums 6v6, introduction to the maul and finally introduction of the RED CARD in match play! Exciting transitions from U11! In 2018, Girls will have an opportunity to play teams of 7. Boys and mixed teams will play 13's.
