Juniors & Minis

Eccles’ Junior and Mini section continues to go from strength to strength. This season we have teams from U7s all the way up to U15s for boys as well as  U15s and U18s girls. We welcome players at five years of age onwards, with the emphasis on fun. We play tag rugby at U7s and U8s before we introduce more contact and a bigger playing area until eventually progressing to full rugby through the RFU’s Age Grade Rugby.

All of our coaches are DBS checked and we have an independent Club Safeguarding Officer, Heather Thorpe, who ensures that your child’s wellbeing is paramount. Coaches have taken the appropriate RFU courses to ensure that the players are developed in the right environment.
