About the team

If your son starts Year 13 in September 2022, then they are very welcome to join us at the friendliest rugby club in South East London! We welcome players regardless of ability, experience, size or fitness to join the Blue & Gold Family at Beckenham RFC.

At this age group the team consists of 15 players. A player may be lifted or supported in the uncontested lineout, there is no turnover law in the scrum and time in the Sin Bin is now 7 minutes.

At Beckenham RFC we aim to promote your child's rugby development by creating an environment that encourages fun, learning, confidence building, teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.

We have a series of fixtures for this season against local and further afield clubs. We will play in the Kent RFU Cup, before the traditional end of season squad tour. We have plenty of coaches and other parents who help out – so we can provide great small group sessions and individualised/tailored support in our coaching.

The coaching staff take care to ensure that all players are involved in the sessions, irrespective of ability and they get half a game playing time in each game.



Training

Training takes place every Sunday between 12.30 and 2pm and every Thursday between 5:45pm and 7:00pm during the September – April rugby season. Please look at the fixtures and results button to see where we are on any given weekend. After training, everyone is welcome to join the coaching staff in the clubhouse for a bite to eat and drink.

The only essential equipment your son will need is a moulded gum shield and a head-guard is recommended though not compulsory. As the weather cools down please make sure your son has a couple of thermal / compression base layers on. They can take them off if they get hot, but you can't put them on to warm up if you don't have them with you in the first place. Rugby gloves are also OK to use.
