Welcome to Cambridge Rugby club and the Under 8s team page.
This is the second youngest age group and is the chance for both last years U7 players to continue developing their skills as well as new players who wish to come and try Tag Rugby. It is a great opportunity to meet new people and friends as well as bringing fantastic enjoyment to both parents and family; we want developing rugby players to experience everything Cambridge Rugby Club has to offer. Rugby is a fun game and our principal aim is to encourage children to embrace that fun and teach them the ethos of the game - fair play and respect for your coaches, colleagues and opponents. Girls and boys are both welcome, adding this to the fact that the RFU has recently taken a good look at rugby for this age group and has developed a new, structured approach to introducing the game, we have a brilliant time both on and off the field.An important feature of the training at this age is to develop passing, catching and spatial awareness.
Training and matches usually start at 9.30 on Sunday mornings with the first registration Sunday being on the first Sunday in September. More detailed information and further updates can be obtained from the age group lead coach.
This is also the age group where many parents first become involved with Cambridge Rugby club. The Mini & Youth section is run entirely by parent volunteers and it is extremely rewarding.
If you would like to help coach or become the age group administrator or even get the team's social diary underway, please speak to Lewis Harvey in the first instance.
