Dragons Rugby Club - Under 8's Years Old



(Training: Saturday 4.00pm - 5.15pm)

[Head Coach: Ian]
[Team Manager: Samantha]


As coaches our most important job is to make sure that the U8's have FUN!
This is the transition year where we move from touch rugby to contact rugby and this will be done incrementally with plenty of guidance and encouragement. Some boys and girls are really keen to learn to tackle, others are a little more hesitant and we will support and guide our U8s every step of the way.We keep things simple and repetitive with progression on certain skills as we move through the year. The U8s will be playing both friendly matches and competitive tournaments over the season so please do ensure they have a well-fitting mouthguard and headgear (if they wish) for every training session. The kids also learn good life skills, such as listening, working as a team to achieve goals together, hand-eye coordination and agility.

One word of advice, if you are a keen rugby parent, your enthusiasm may sometimes overshadow that of your son or daughter, we know ours did at the start! Give them time to get used to the environment, they can simply observe if they feel comfortable for the first couple of weeks or doing half the activities. We have kids of all backgrounds, shapes, sizes and skills levels. We welcome anyone to come down to training to have a run and see how they go. The Dragons are a family oriented club, all the coaches are volunteer Mums or Dads and we sometimes get participation from parents in our sessions which we actively encourage. The kids love it when the parents join in!

We look forward to seeing you and your son or daughter at training one of these days.
