Girls Rugby at Derby RFC starts 2nd Sep’18

This year we are starting girls rugby at Derby RFC.  As you know girls can play mixed rugby up to end of U11 then girls must move to U13 rugby.  We want to encourage all girls – whether they have played rugby before or not from Year 7 to Year 13.

We will be training on a Sunday initially (and we may then also have training on a Wednesday evening too depending on numbers). Training will be at Derby Rugby Club, Haslams Lane from 9am to 10am. We will aim to extend this to 10.30am.

The girls need to wear comfortable sports clothes, bring water to drink and if they enjoy it, they need to have studs and a gum shield after a couple of weeks.  If they have them already even better.

We will start registration on Sunday 2nd September 2018 and again the following Sunday.

All teams need to start somewhere…. so I’d be grateful if your daughter/ niece can encourage more people to come and try.  We will introduce those new to rugby in gradually so really nothing to be worried about.

Please contact me if you have any questions – if not I look forward to seeing you on Sunday 2nd September 2018 at 9am.
