Age Range:

16 Only

Welcome to Lichfield's Under 17 Age Group page

 

Our age group is for boys who are in Sixth Form at school or at College and anyone is welcome to come and join us.  No rugby experience is necessary, as our focus is on developing players’ skills throughout the season.

 

Rugby uses a ‘building block’ approach and aims to equip players with the skills they need as they build towards the XV-a-side game.  Season by season players learn new aspects of the game – you can find out more about this by clicking the link below and visiting the RFU’s website;

The focus we follow is:

 

  1. Put the child first
  2. Maintain rugby as a game for all shapes and sizes
  3. Increase enjoyment for all
  4. Increase involvement for all
  5. Retain players in the game

 

We train or play matches on Sundays and we also train during the week.  We have close links to Lichfield's senior Men's section and a pathway exists into adult rugby for those who wish to follow this, with opportunities to train with the seniors and on occassion play up as allowed under the RFU's regulations.

 

The RFU rules that we play our games around can be downloaded here:
