What age can my son and daughter start playing rugby?

Most clubs in your local area will have a Mini rugby section which starts from U6s or U7s (dependant on the club, and what coaches they have available).

Mini Rugby is traditionally U6s to U9s

Junior Rugby is the U10s to U16s

Clubs then vary here depending on the size of the club. ‘Colts’ usually U17s and U18s combine before going into senior rugby at the age of 18/19.

 

Girls can mix with boys from U6s to U12s.

When they are older squads get merged together. So you have an U13s, U15s, U18’s and Ladies teams.
