U8’s (2022-23)

 

WELCOME

Welcome to the U8’s team at Worthing RFC, also known as The Worthing Rhinos!  The U8’s is for children in Year 3 at school (ages 7-8).

Whether your child has never played rugby before or has been playing for years, we welcome you to come along and give it a try.  We play nearly every Sunday morning from September to Apr and all you have to do is turn up!  Your first four sessions are free, so you can ensure your child enjoys rugby with us before becoming a member of the club.

Our primary focus is on the children having fun whilst being active enjoying the fresh air!  This age group plays tag rugby, with training weekly and friendly festivals throughout the season where multiple clubs come together to play each other.  We also incorporate England Rugby’s core values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship through the sessions.
