Wimbledon Rugby Minis & Youth new season arrangements - season starts Sunday 5th September 2021

Back to rugby - back to normal!

After what seems like a very long time we are looking forward to welcoming all players, old and new, back to Wimbledon Rugby Club from Sunday 5th September 2021.

As well as being back to training we are back to training all together as a club with one session for most age groups starting at 9.30am and running for somewhere between 90 minutes and 2 hours (weather and coaching plans depending). The U14s and U15s will train from 10.30am. Three squads - the girls U18s and the boys U16s and Colts (U17-U18) will train from 11.30 onwards.

Parents for those starting after 9.30 are reminded to park away from the club as all parking and public road parking places will be full. Please park off Copse Hill.

We welcome all kids, regardless of experience or ability. Those new-to-rugby are particularly welcome. If you are new to our club we have a long-established minis and youth division with over 100 well-trained coaches. Our aim is to help all our kids enjoy this great sport, and unlike some clubs, we don't run waiting lists nor do we only pick the most-able kids. For more information on what we do read about us here.

We have tag rugby squads at under 6 (reception and school year 1), under 7 and under 8. Then we gradually introduce contact rugby with the under 9s (school year 4) and build up skills through under 10s and under 11s. Then kids leave the 'minis' and become 'youth' players at under 12s and run through to the colts (combined under 17 & 18 squad).

Girls can choose to play in mixed squads up to U11 or select our new all-girls U11 group, which combines years 4 and 5. At secondary school age, all squads are girls-only: U13 (school years 7 and 8), U15 (years 9 and 10) and U18 (years 11 to 13).

We also offer a Tag-only squad to introduce rugby to older new-to-rugby kids and an Inclusive squad for kids with SENs.
