On Saturday 27th January the Minis attended the Minis Lunch.
Welcome to the Minis Section at Effingham & Leatherhead RFC. The Minis section is made up of age groups spanning from Under 6s to Under 11s.
We welcome girls and boys of all ages and skill levels in the teams and can accommodate parents and volunteers who would like to get involved. We may add names to waiting lists as the teams fill-up but hope to be able to welcome everyone.
Training is each Sunday from 10:00 to 12:00 at Browns Field
Winter season start Sunday 3rd September 10:00
Winter season end Sunday 10th December 10:00
Spring season start Sunday 7th January 10:00

U6s encompass 4-6 year olds, with subsequent years tracking academic age groups. The u6s train each week at home and some invitational away sessions, or will host local clubs at Browns Lane.
Once in the u7s, training is complementary to the frequent Surrey festivals the kids are invited to. Each year, ELRFC hosts the very successful Minis Festival in Effingham, with the 2018 festival being held 18th March 2018.
There are different levels of membership available, from social to family. We welcome guests and players wanting to try taster sessions, with membership subs to be paid within the first month of playing. Each playing member needs to be registered with the RFU to be able to attend and play in festivals.
Training & volunteering
Each of our age groups are supported by a dedicated team of volunteer coaches, assistants and helpers. The focus of all the coaches is to teach the core skills of rugby in a fun and friendly environment whilst also promoting the RFU core rugby values;
Each team is managed by a Year Group Manager, with a group of volunteer co-ordinators looking at section-wide elements such as Training, Membership, Business, Sponsorships etc. We welcome interest from any parents or guardians looking to get involved in any part of the set-up, on a voluntary or professional basis.
The clubhouse kitchen is open every Sunday morning during training 10:00-14:00, serving hot drinks and breakfast rolls, burgers and hotdogs. Visiting the club house after training is a great way for the children and parents to enjoy each other’s company away from the pitch whilst also enjoying a hot snack, some well-earned sweets from the tuck shop, or even a refreshing drink from the club bar.
The clubhouse hosts the club kitshop for new rugby kit for all ages; kit can be ordered from the club.
