The focus in Minis rugby (U6, U8, U10 & U12) is on developing the basic skills of run, pass, catch while gaining an understanding of the game including the spirit of rugby in a fun and inclusive environment.
The U6 and U8 divisions are non-contact Rookie Rugby (flag rugby), so all you need to play is some comfy clothes, a water bottle and either a pair of running shoes or cleats (soccer cleats will do!).
Contact is introduced at U12. We begin introducing contact to the game in a very controlled and safe environment with an emphasis on technique and safety. At Rapids we understand that children can have very different comfort levels with contact and so we help them develop their contact skills at a rate that is comfortable and safe for them.
