NEW PLAYERS
To ensure the continued success of the mini and youth set up at the club it is important that we continue to get new players to join the club. As such we would ask you to try and encourage friends of your children to come down and try out mini rugby.

WE WANT YOU TO GET MORE INVOLVED
We are always in need of additional people to get involved in our club. We have excellent facilities in a location that is second to none. We would encourage you and your family to make the most of the facilities that the club has to offer, and we would ask you to consider getting more involved in the club. Let you manager/coach know if you would be willing to coach, manage a team, help with fundraising or act as a parent liaison officer.

 Players must turn up for training and matches with the proper kit and protection.
No gum shield No rugby.
We look forward to welcoming you and your children to the club, and we hope that they continue to enjoy their time at the club
