MINIS

The Minis are an inclusive section providing a positive experience for every player and parent.
The kids have fun through training and matches, feeling part of a team, and improving and developing as players at their own pace.
Parents are an important part of our section and are encouraged to contribute to the running of the club should they wish. All our volunteer coaches focus on providing a positive environment for the children focusing on Teamwork, Respect and Fun.

In our Rascals to P3 groups, the focus is on fun games that encourage ball-handling skills and non-contact ‘touch rugby’ games.

From P4 to U12, the boys train and develop their skills as they progress introducing safe contact rugby.

Throughout the season, we regularly host teams and visit other clubs throughout Northern Ireland. All kids have an equal opportunity to play.

Mini Rugby is governed by a generic set of Rules & Regulations set out by the IRFU. All players must also adhere to the Code of Conduct set out by the IRFU.
You can read the official IRFU Rules & Regulations here.
