Welcome to the Under 8s team page at Cambridge Rugby club
This is the second youngest age grouping and will involve those who started at younger ages as well as those new young althetes to come and try Rugby for the first time. It is also the chance for them to bring their families and 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 will be introduced to tag rugby. The RFU has recently taken a good look at rugby for this age group and has developed a new, structure approach to introducing the game.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 31st August. More detailed information and further updates can be obtained from the age group Team Manager.
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 Richard Janes in the first instance.
