About the Minis and Juniors

Welcome all players and parents to Old Yardleians Minis & Junior Section.

Our Minis & Juniors Section caters for young players from the ages of 6 up to 17, organised into year groups based on school year. Both girls and boys are welcome and train & play together until U12s level (inclusive). All groups are looked after by qualified coaches and all sessions are geared towards enjoyment and the development of young players to their potential.

Age groups fall into categories of Rugby as prescribed in the RFU continuum:

  • Under 6 to under 8 Mini tag rugby (non contact) 7 a side
  • Under 9 & Under 10 Full Contact 9 a side
  • Under 11 Full Contact 12 a side
  • Under 12 Full Contact 13 a side
  • Under 13 - Under 17 years Full Contact 15 a-side

Coaching sessions are held on Sunday mornings (10:30am - 12:30) with games arranged throughout the year according to the structured season.

For further details check out the Minis and Juniors Contacts page on this website and contact any of the committee members or coaches.

The section continues to thrive by means of its volunteers. We benefit from some extremely committed people who help to keep things running throughout the season, but we are always in need of additional support. If you would like to help out and can spare a little time each week I would be pleased to hear from you, the reward does come in seeing a thriving club with more than 100 children enjoying their rugby both on and off the pitch.
