Welcome to Cambridge Rugby club and the Under 8s team page.
This is the youngest age grouping and is the chance for budding young althetes to come and try Rugby. 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 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.
