SuperValu Minis Under 6-12
- Minis rugby is a cornerstone of Skerries Rugby Football Club. We have 250+ players every season, from Under 6 to Under 12. This number increases year on year, in what is a truly inclusive setting & sport, with girls & boys playing together up to U12.
- The welfare & safety of the children will always be put first at Skerries Rugby Football Club.
- Minis rugby is non-competitive, with the focus on participation & fun.
- The season runs from 1st weekend in September thru to final weekend of following April. Registration takes place each August, but we encourage new players throughout the season. Talk to a team coach.
- Each team has on average 7 coaches, = ratio of approx 1:5, coach to kids. This enables ease of managing all levels of kids confidence & experience. It also helps introducing kids who join mid-season.
- All coaches are parents & volunteers, are Garda vetted & have the official coaching badges for their age grade. The club actively invest in coaches, paying costs of all coaching training. Coaches are encouraged to attend Club & Leinster run workshops & courses through the season.
- Players must be registered to train and play, for insurance purposes.
- Players must wear a gumshield, bring water and be suitably attired. Talk to coaches if any queries.
- We do not stream in mini rugby at Skerries RFC. We adhere to Irish Rugby (IRFU) guidelines, believing that by not streaming, we retain much greater numbers of our players & help them develop onward into youth rugby.
- All parents & supporters must follow our Club codes of conduct for parents & supporters. These are available on this website. Please always encourage & support in a positive & constructive manner.
- Parents are invited to help. Volunteer to be a coach, or volunteer in any way during the season – ask a coach. This can be helping with post-game food / clean-up on Sunday mornings; A key part of the inclusivity in our club.
- We join together as a group of kids, coaches & parents at various times in the season; For Leinster / Ireland matches, and when each minis team play as Half-time-Heroes at our senior 1st team AIL home games.
- Any questions or concerns, ask any coach. All discussions are treated as confidential.
