Bournemouth U10



Age Range:

9 Only


Welcome to the team page for Bournemouth Rugby's U10's - Developing great players who love to play rugby. We follow the RFU principles so that as children get older they move away from non-contact tag rugby and into the contact game, so that by the time they finish at under 12's they are ready to progress to a full size pitch and 15 a side games. Mini rugby is a mixture of exercise, skills, team work and personal development to bring out the best in children in an enjoyable environment.

The Coaches

We have 2 Level 1 trained coaches as part of our coaching team, plus 8 other dedicated parent/coaches who have completed Rugby Ready CPD, Tag to Touch CPD, Safeguarding CPD and all are DBS checked. The RFU Continual Professional Development of our coaches is the firm basis on which we have built our successful minis team.

Training Details

At Under 10 (School Year 5) children play in 7 a-side teams, moving away from tag rugby and into contact including grip and low tackling. We have a busy fixtures diary, visiting local clubs and travelling to rugby festivals and tournaments. Through physical engagement players develop decision making skills and individual responsibility for themselves and others.

Get Involved

We want our players, parents and coaches to remain lovers of rugby for the rest of their lives and give back to the sport what they have gained over the years. The Club is a volunteer club. All the officers, coaches, managers and parents who help out every Sunday do so on a completely voluntary basis, without them there would be no club. If you are able to support in any capacity then contact Grant, team manager either at training or email through the website.
