Brighton Blues Under 12s
WELCOME TO BRIGHTON BLUES UNDER 12s!
(for children born after 1st September 2007 and before 31st August 2008 – Year 7 as of Sept 2019)
One team got to play at Wasps Festival Winners of the Plate Final– November 2014.
At U11s we play contact rugby. This is in line the RFU’s New Rules of Play, a pathway to introduce the game of rugby to young players. There are 3 stages starting with tag rugby for U6/U7/U8s, mini rugby for U9/U10 (Tackling/Scrummaging (uncontested)), and mini rugby for U11/U12s, so that by the U13s the players are ready to play the full 15-a-side game.
We train once a week at Brighton Football Club (Rugby) on Sunday mornings starting at 10:00 am finishing by 12 noon, with festivals and friendlies throughout the year for all teams.
We have a playing group this year for the U11s with over 20 returning registered players of varied ability split into squads that change over the season as players progress. We are very keen to see new faces joining the club throughout the season. With boys and girls from many different schools, Brighton Rugby is a great way to learn new skills, generate new friendships, enhance focus and concentration and build self-esteem and self confidence.
Players are moved within our squad as they learn, progress (and grow!!) at different rates.
We have a number of coaches, first aiders and partially RFU qualified referees for our U8 set up, run by Jon Cawley and Tim Wright. We encourage parents to get involved, and will support those who want to take qualifications, to support the players to have a great time. All first aiders, coaches and referees are DBS checked.
