Coaching, Management & Support
RFU Level 1
School Year 3
During the rugby season the Under 8s meet at FRFC on Sunday
mornings from 10am through until 12pm for coaching (we meet
on the fields behind the clubhouse and through the gates
to Oak Farm.).
Some weeks we visit other local clubs for joint training
and at regular intervals we enter a team into local tournaments;
details of our fixtures for the season can be found on this
website too. So please ring or email and check before coming
All are welcome throughout the season!
is Tag Rugby ?
Tag rugby is a fast-moving, non-contact game suitable for
boys and girls to play together. Its safe, non-contact nature,
combined with the fun and vibrance of the sport, has meant
that mini tag is now the RFU's official version of rugby
for under-7s and under-8s.
If you are interested in becoming a coach, please contact
Chris Collett for an informal chat about the U8s style of
coaching and what we are looking for in a coach.
We have a thriving squad of around 20 players this season
of both boys and girls. We always welcome additional recruits
from children in Year 3 so feel free either to print out
this web page and pass on to friends or Please feel free
to contact primary coach or team manager
Our main focus is on the children having fun, enjoying
ourselves and learning basic rugby skills through tag rugby,
the RFU's agreed modified version of the game for this age
We are a club run entirely by volunteers so we would welcome
help and support from parents in any capacity.
We work on individual skills of:
Evasion - side steps, swerving, change of pace.
Handling skills - ball familiarity, static passing,
Tagging (Tackling) - positioning, awareness.
Decision Making as an individual
And group skills of:
Attack - working together to move forward including
passing, evasion and support.
Defence - keeping a defensive line, reforming a line,
Decision Making as a team.
Learning the rules of tag rugby and most importantly,
Player of the Week
Each week the coaches award a player of the week trophy
to an individual who has put in a lot of effort, listened
and responded well to coaching, supported their team mates
and shown good skill and awareness.
