Thank you for visiting our Club website and welcome to our U12s 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 8 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 three successful seasons of contact rugby, we will be continuing at U12 with new skills and techniques. We move to 12 players per team, introduction of the 5 player scrum (still no pushing), handoffs are allowed below the armpits and an extra centre in the backs.
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 4 seasons. The 2017/18 season will be no exception, details of this season’s tour will be released in due course, keep an eye on our homepage for further information.
Touring a great opportunity to play rugby, do exciting outdoor activities and have great 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.
