U8 (2013)

Hi All,

New players are very welcome.

Training is on every Sunday from 9.00-10.00am on the all-weather pitch (Clubhouse end).

We focus on Skill Development, Physical Literacy & most importantly having FUN.  Matches are tip rugby and NON-CONTACT (NO TACKLING) at this age.

Please make sure your child is wearing studded boots (no blades or astros) & a gum shield, see info below.

Any parents who would like to assist with the coaching are very welcome; however they must become a member of the Club under the IRFU Child Welfare Guidelines.

In the meantime if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Rossa Malone
U8’s Head Coach
