If your son or daughter starts Year 5 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, the team consists of 8 players. The players are introduced to uncontested scrums with the three nearest players to the dead ball forming the scrum, contest for the ball 1 v 1, introduction of ruck, introduction of maul. 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 gets 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 the Kent RFU Cup, before the traditional end of season squad tour.
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.
