Cambridge Under 9’s
Welcome to the home page of the U9’s, we offer mini rugby to boys and girls who are in school Year 4.
At Cambridge Rugby we believe rugby is a fantastic sport! Built around the RFU’s Core Values of; teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship and our goal is to teach players the core techniques and skills of rugby in a fun and inclusive environment. We aim to play fast free-flowing rugby which keeps the ball in play and as such training primarily revolves around running, passing and support play. Age Grade Rugby is used to gradually introduce the rules of the game. At u9’s we dispense with tags and contact is introduced, but the emphasis remains on evasive running, passing, catching and spatial awareness.
The rugby season starts on the first Sunday in September and finishes in April. Training takes place at Grantchester Rd, Cambridge, CB3 9ED on Sunday mornings between 0930 – 1030. Free parking is available at the ground and please arrive approximately 15mins beforehand to ensure a prompt start.
The Mini & Youth section is not just about the players, but the whole family and their engagement with the wider club community. If you would like more information, bring a new player along or help out, please get in touch.
