Core Values

At Bournemouth Rugby we put children at the heart of everything we do and all the decisions we make. We encourage fun on the pitch, through equal opportunity and realistic expectations of our children. We develop children’s confidence and character as players and as people, challenging any behaviour that conflicts with this. In addition, we build the skills of our coaches to provide a safe, healthy, respectful and enjoyable environment for children.

We are also committed to providing equality of opportunity for all of our squad. This means that 'ALL squad members' will get a chance to play matches in mixed ability teams, despite their level of experience - and not just an A-Team.
