Welcome to Lichfield's Under 8 Age Group page
Our age group is for boys and girls who are in Year 3 at school 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:
- Put the child first
- Maintain rugby as a game for all shapes and sizes
- Increase enjoyment for all
- Increase involvement for all
- Retain players in the game
We train or play matches on Sundays between 10:30 and 12 noon approximately.
The RFU rules that we play our games around can be downloaded here:
We play mixed ability teams and to give our players lots of opportunity to play rugby, we will usually play 2 different clubs on the same Sunday.
Anyone is welcome to come and try rugby with us. If you would like to find out more about our age group, please contact;
