If your son or daughter starts Year 4 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 children are introduced to contact rugby, there are no rucks, mauls, lineout's or scrums. 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.
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. As the weather cools down please make sure your child has a couple of layers of thermal / compression undershirts 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.
After training, everyone is welcome to join the coaching staff in the clubhouse for a bite to eat and drink.
Contact Jim Hogan, the U9 Head Coach if you have any additional questions about joining the team. We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly and competitive club.
