Squad Information.....

During the rugby season the Under 15s meet for coaching at FRUFC, Tile Barn Close, Farnborough, on Sunday mornings from 10am through until 12pm (arrive by 09:45am). Two hours flies by each week. Some weeks we have visiting teams, or we visit other local clubs for “friendlies”. We also play some Hampshire Cup fixtures throughout the season – this year sees us playing in a league for the first time which should be very interesting. Details of our fixtures for the season, which starts on 8th September, can be found on this website (fixtures link above). We also train on a Thursday evening from 7pm to 8pm on the 3G pitch at Samuel Cody Sports College. For new joiners, please ring or email and check were going to be there before coming down.

Whilst we have a competitive squad of over 25 players, we are always keen to encourage new talent and new players are welcome throughout the season. Our squad is a mixture of players who have been with us since they were in Year R and a number who have joined us each year since.

2019 - 2020 Season    
Again, there will be several new challenges for the players and coaches as this year we will be basically playing the full rugby laws (the only difference being that the lineouts are lifted but uncontested for safety reasons). The guys are really looking forward to playing the full game with its greater emphasis on strategic thinking on the pitch.

Our emphasis at the beginning of the season is on refreshing and developing skills rapidly and then focussing on building our teamwork so that we are ready to compete. This season will see us continuing to focus the players into specific positions and we anticipate some strong competition for key roles. We are aiming to maintain a highly competitive team for formal fixtures - this will rely on a strong turnout in the squad and we use the friendly fixtures to develop players to get into the competitive team.

As well as general fitness, agility, balance and co-ordination, we work on individual skills of:

  • Evasion   - finding space, swerving, changing pace, avoiding the tackle;

  • Handling   - passing and catching;

  • Tackling   - positioning, awareness, execution, release;

  • Rucking, Mauling and Scrummaging - working as a team in contact situations;

  • Kicking   - spot kicks and tactical kicks in open play.

and team skills of:

  • Attack   - working together to move forward including passing, evasion and support;

  • Defence   - keeping a defensive line, reforming a line, coordinating positions;

  • Tactics - strategy, decision making and communication.

We obviously focus on learning the laws of the game, but rugby is also a great game for physical fitness & development, personal & social development and confidence building. We do focus on discipline, respect and fair play too - all of which are important elements of the modern game. Whilst we play a lot of rugby and undertake training drills, we also play a variety of training games designed to practice skills whilst having fun.

Join In 
If you are in secondary school Year 10 in September 2019 and would like to give rugby a go, we’d love to see you at training.

Safety and comfort are primary concerns so players will need a gum shield (mandatory for contact rugby), boots with suitable aluminium or plastic (not composite) studs (ideally not blades), a drink and snack and appropriate clothes for the weather (no zips or hard buttons please). Please make sure you’re happy for them to get muddy! For beginners, don’t worry too much about having all the right kit - come along and see how you get on for a couple of weeks before splashing out (note you must have a gum shield from the off).

If you are interested in assisting in coaching, please contact Neil for an informal chat about the U15s style of coaching and what we are looking for in a coaching assistant. Whilst we have a strong coaching team, as the boys get older, there is room for more coaches. We’re always happy to have people willing to referee too and we need to be able to field a ref for competitive games so please make contact if you are interested in this.

We are a team run entirely by volunteers so we would welcome help and support from parents in any capacity. There are always many things to do to ensure things run smoothly throughout the season and this year will be another busy one from the off. We are a very sociable group with lots of events for kids and parents throughout the season.

This season we will again be making full use of the refurbished bar in the clubhouse after training where we will be practicing our social and communications skills focussing heavily on left arm muscular development in training for tour.  With all that on offer, I’m sure my phone will be ringing off the hook!
