If your son or daughter starts Year 6 in September 2019, then they are very welcome to join us at the friendliest rugby club in South East London! We welcome players regardless of ability, experience or gender to join the Blue & Gold Family at Beckenham RFC.
At this age teams consist of 9 players and they are introduced to the contested strike, tactical kicking and kicking restarts. They continue with the nearest 3 players forming the scrum while the contest for the ball is now 2 v 2. 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.
The coaching staff take care to ensure that all players are involved in the sessions, irrespective of ability and that everyone will get half a game playing time in each match.
We host and visit a number of local clubs throughout the season, play in a number of festivals as well Kent RFU Cup, before the traditional end of season squad tour.
Training takes place every Sunday between 10:00am and noon 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 child 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 child 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.
Get in touch with Head Coach Steve Benham if you have any additional questions about joining the team. We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly and competitive club.
