Thank you for visiting our Club website and welcome to our U13s homepage.
We are a large and popular age group that welcomes new players and aim to provide an opportunity for all to take part in and enjoy the game of rugby irrespective of ability. At Newark RUFC we provide excellent coaching through our highly qualified coaching team (we are blessed with 7 coaches within our age group). All our coaches oversee player development and are directed by the teams Head Coach (Alan Staines) providing structure & support.
After seven successful seasons in Mini Rugby we now take the big step into Youth Rugby. We move to 13 players per team, introduction of #8 into the scrum, scrums are allowed to push up to 1 metre and we move to a full sized pitch!
Players are given the opportunity to continually develop their fitness levels through game based rugby activities whilst always having fun in a safe environment. All registered players get the opportunity to represent the club playing regularly for the age group against local clubs.
Of course rugby tours are a must as touring is a great tradition in any Rugby club, let alone Newark!!! Our age group has enjoyed successful tours for the past 5 seasons. The 2018/19 season will be no exception with our planned tour to Dublin, details have already been released and plans are under way.
Touring is a great opportunity to play rugby and have fun. We start the touring ethos in the Minis which transcends Junior and Youth and develops into senior rugby. Rugby is arguably the most social sport in the world and a ‘rugby tour’ provides a great opportunity to bond with your teammates and have a “good laugh”.
Newark prides itself on being a family orientated club, it offers a great social life with many events being run throughout the year which we hope you would become involved with, keep an eye on the Club website for details.
We are always looking to welcome new members to join our successful club so if you are a keen player in school year 8 (Sept 2018), parent/guardian, coach, spectator with skills that can take our club further and are interested in becoming involved at Newark Rugby club either for the first time or you have moved into the area please contact Ann Gooden (our Team Manager) who as always will be more than happy to assist you.
