New to Rugby?

Don't worry if you have never played Rugby before. The most important element is giving it a go. Many others will be in the same position. Simply turn up on Tuesday or Thursday training sessions to give rugby a try for free. See the schedules on the home page for times and locations.

 

If this is your first time then just come dressed ready to run around outdoors. Our practice sessions involve plenty of running so having an outer layer initially that can be removed for after warm up. Secondly if you have cleats (see below) then please bring otherwise initially just use sneakers. If you find you want to continue then you will need to invest in a pair of cleats.

 

Mouth Guard: A mouth guard will be required for any contact drills and we encourage all ages to bring and wear a mouth guard through the entire practice. This is most important at the younger ages as inadvertent collisions can occur and we want the kids to get used to wearing a mouth guard. Mouth guards must not extend outside of  the mouth (blinky style is not allowed and any strap must be cut or removed).

 

Cleats: Cleats must not have a single toe cleat common to football cleats, no baseball cleats, molded rubber soccer style cleats are the best as a start.

 

Dress for the weather: No hoods, however beanies can be worn.  Younger kids can wear football receiver style gloves. Dress for the weather in layers, as we get into the colder months undergarments that cover the legs are allowed in practice.

 

Bring a sports bottle for water.
