Year 7 & 8 Girls Rugby Festival
at Effingham & Leatherhead RFC
on Wednesday the 27th of February.
The timings for the event are as follows:
– 1pm Arrival
– 1.45pm Matches start
– 3.30pm Food & Drink in the club house
– 4pm Finish
The event will be a combined year 7 & 8 team, giving schools opportunity to have enough players to bring at least 1 team to the festival. Where appropriate we can look to play separate year 7 & 8 fixtures if schools can accommodate.
The focus of this event will be an introduction to rugby, so please don’t worry if you have not had much girls rugby experience as we can manage the conditions of the games to ensure that everyone gets a positive experience. This is with both full contact, semi-contact or even touch rugby.
We will also be able to offer micro coaching sessions in order to support the development of your girls, this is in terms of teaching them the correct technique for tackling, rucking, catching, passing, etc.
