The minis section at Wimbleonian Warriors welcomes girls and boys from school reception age upwards (and earlier if they enjoy it). We are a fully inclusive club and seek to engage all youngsters whatever their abilities are. Our emphasis is on participation and fun, with equality of opportunities for all players. Our ethos is to foster and nurture all children. We operate to the RFU/Sport England child protection guidelines in the "Welfare of Young People in Rugby Union" and our coaches, administrators and team managers are CRB cleared.
We play every Sunday morning from September to April. We often have friendly fixtures against other local clubs and take part in larger tournaments (festivals) involving several clubs. All age groups train at our clubhouse on Coombe Lane.
Up to Under 8s, all children play tag rugby – a non-contact game in which the emphasis is on basic co-ordination and handling (catching and passing). U9's and U10's progress towards building a 3 "man" scrum and introducing tackling skills, in a safe and controlled way. U11s and U12s progress to the next phase which develops the four core skills and prepares them for the 15-a-side game at U13.
Not only is the rugby fun, playing for the Warriors gives the children the chance to enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of being part of a team.
