Cambridge U13s are embarking on a new season which will involve the transition from Mini/Midi rugby to Youth rugby. The game will now reflect the game we all know and love, played on a full size pitch with a team of 15.
We have a enthusiastic squad of around 40 boys that has been developing into a strong unit and improving every season. We welcome new players of all standards, whether new to the game or experienced from school, our coaches will try to engage new players with the game and introduce them to the existing members of the squad.
We now train at the later time starting 11.00am (meet at 10.45.am) every Sunday from September to May at Volac Park, Granchester Road, unless we are engaged in inter-club matches when timings and venues vary. Our pitch is the first on the left as you enter the ground.
We have moved to the full 15-a-side variation of Rugby with scrum and lineout both contested but no lifting. All other laws apply with positive play being rewarded. Gum shields are compulsory and Headgear is advisory due to the physical nature of the game. These are precautionary measures to make sure the children enjoy the game without risk.
Rugby is a game that provides discipline, structure and develops team spirit. We encourage good behaviour from both Children and Parents, especially when entertaining other teams or visiting other clubs for matches. The past couple of seasons have seen the squad tour to Ireland and Wales. Rugby tours help the boys experience different cultures, improve their game and develop their social skills.
Please feel free to come and try out with us. Either contact us below or join us at the club for a training session. Players of all shapes, sizes and standards are welcome as we are able to run 2 teams every week, the 1st team and a development team. Parents are also welcome to help with Coaching, Organisation and Admin.
