Heath Age Grade Rugby


Welcome to the Heath RUFC Age Grade Rugby.  On here you’ll find some useful information about our teams, the coaches and how to get involved.

Age Grade Rugby ensures that every player is able to enjoy rugby in a safe environment where they can develop their personal and social skills as well as a wide array of transferable multi-sports skills. This results in their holistic development as well as their life long involvement in rugby and other sports.

Age Grade Rugby is the game for all players aged 6 – 18 in clubs and within the representative pathway and it incorporates the rules of play, regulation, competition formats and the structure of the season.

It is based on the principles of player centred, development driven and competition supported with the wants and needs of young people at its heart.

At Heath RUFC we are proud to run the following age grades:

-    Under 8s (tag)
-    Under 9s
-    Under 10s
-    Under 11s  

-    Under 12s
-    Under 14s
-    Under 16s

As players progress through the age grades more laws of the game are introduced to support player development.  More details of this can be found on here .

The 2021/22 Season

After a difficult 18 months Heath RUFC are looking forward to a busy 2021/22 season.  The fixture list is getting full, although there are still slots that can be filled.

More importantly we are looking to recruit new players.  If you know of boys or girls (girls are able to play mixed rugby to u11s), then please get in touch with Alistair Gordon (contacts page here).  We intend to start pre-season mid August with training on Sundays (all age groups) and Wednesdays (u14s & 16s only).

We will also be taking the opportunity to hold some curtain raisers when the 1st XV are hosting local derby games.

Finally if anyone is keen to get involved with coaching don’t hesitate to get in touch, also, with Alistair Gordon.


Age Grade Rugby - an Update from Alistair.

The season is upon us and training is underway for the minis including an entertaining curtain raiser for U12s recently v The Old Brods.

We are getting good numbers at the minis - the U14s and U16s will be starting back up mid September.

At Heath, we have a great opportunity for kids who either want to give Rugby Union a go for the first time, or simply want a change.  The Club offers the best facilities around, alongside dedicated Coaches and a busy fixture list for 2021/22.

However, we always need more players.  So, if you have a friend or relative who may be interested - Heath is the place to give it a go.  Mixed rugby from U8s to U11s, boys at U12, U14s and U16s.

At £30 for a single Junior Member per season, OR, £40 for Family Membership (inc 2 Juniors) the subs are very reasonable and this includes Club shorts and socks for players!  We will be placing an order for Heath training gear (off field jerseys / t-shirts) in the next fortnight, for players who want to buy any Club gear.

Let’s build up the age grade section for years to come!
