SuperValu Minis Under 6-12
- Minis rugby is a cornerstone of Skerries Rugby Club, with 250+ players across Under 6 to Under 12.
- We are an inclusive club, with girls & boys playing together up to U12.
- Child welfare & safety always comes first in our Club.
- Minis rugby is non-competitive, focused on participation & fun.
- We don’t stream our minis teams. We adhere to Irish Rugby (IRFU) guidelines, knowing this helps retain much greater numbers of players in the sport, at the end transitioning them to youths rugby.
- Seasons run from Sept thru to end of the following April. We welcome new players throughout the season. Talk to a team coach.
- Mini teams train & play blitzes on Sunday mornings. We welcome visitors to come down and watch, grab a coffee in our coffee shop. Bring children to watch before trying it out. All play is focused on our magnificent new artificial pitch, which everyone loves.
- Each team has on average 7 coaches, a very strong coach to kids ratio. This enables us to manage players at all levels of confidence & experience.
- Coaches are parents, are Garda vetted & are trained to their team’s level. We invest in our coaches, pay for all coaching training & encourage attendance at workshops & courses through the season.
- Players must be registered to play. Click Here for registration details.
- Players must wear a gumshield from Under 8 and upwards.
- All supporters must follow our Code of Conduct, viewable on this site. Always encourage & support in a positive & constructive manner.
- We encourage parents to volunteer – Be a coach, or volunteer in many other ways – ask a coach.
- Each season we look to travel to Leinster / Ireland matches in Dublin as a group of players, coaches & families. These are great days out for all and the children love them.
- Minis team play as Half-time Heroes at 1st team home league games, getting to experience the big match-day and the crowd at our Senior men’s team club. Mascots get to run out with the senior team for kick-off.
- Any questions or concerns, ask any coach. All discussions confidential.
