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.
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.
