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.
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.
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.
