The mini & Junior section of the club is open to both boys and girls from 4 to 16 years old. Children can join at any age and no previous rugby experience is necessary. Youth rugby is governed by the rules laid out by the English RFU, in a document called the rugby continuum.

If the age group of your child is training at home (see below for age group help), you can just show up, ready to play (mouth guard obligatory from U9s and older). You can find this information under fixtures. If you are unsure (fields may be flooded or frozen for example), please contact the Admin of your age group or e-mail the mini/junior club administrator. Please bear in mind that all admins are volunteers with other day jobs, so please don’t expect an immediate answer.

For more information, see below under RFU registration.

New members:

  1. Your child can try three consecutive sessions before you need to commit, however, it means your child cannot participate in any matches or friendlies outside of the Hithercroft sports grounds during that time for insurance reasons.
  2. Click here to create an account in GMS, the RFU’s database. Fill in the details and purchase a membership. For U6, make sure to select the cheaper U6 start rugby one (no tournament fees to pay).
  3. If you forget your password, you can reset it here: http://www.englandrugby.com/user/password-recovery/
  4. If you can’t remember your username or have a question e-mail the youth admin.

A player cannot play matches for Wallingford until they are RFU registered and paid their membership fees, as they will not be covered by the RFU insurance.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact our Mini/Junior Membership Registrar


Start Rugby
Once a child is 4 they can join our Start Rugby group. They play tag rugby with an emphasis on fun and friendship. Competitive fixtures are not played at this age.


Mini Rugby
From the 1st September after their 6th birthday the children join the Under 7 section. From this age group onwards, the squads play friendly fixtures against other local clubs and attend festivals and tournaments. Each year they then move up through the age group. The Under 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 11, and 12s together are known as the “Minis” and generally play their fixtures against the same clubs on the same Sunday. Both boys and girls play mini rugby together.


Junior Rugby – Boys Only
From school year 8 (the 1st September after their 12th birthday), boys and girls are no longer allowed to play on the same team. At this age, the boys join the Junior section, which consists of the U13s, U14s, U15s and U16s.  The girls play in the Maidens.  (See the next section).


Training
Under 6 to Under 16s training takes place on a Sunday morning, with the under 6s & under 7s starting at 10.30am and most other groups starting at 10am. The Maidens train on a Sunday afternoon. The Junior age groups also on a mid week evening. (See individual age groups for more information).
