And what a year ! New Clubhouse and the Clubs 40th Anniversary 1973 - 2013.
Letterkenny RFC Mini Section started 7 years ago and has grown massively as the popularity of rugby has increased in the country. We now field teams at all levels from Under 7 to Under 12 with full squads and a full panel of volunteer coaches. Our focus for all players is fun, participation, life skills and sporting development. We follow the IRFU guidelines in the Long Term Player Development pathway in attempting to give our players the very best start in their rugby careers and as much fun as possible in a safe environment. New players are invited to join our club to make new friends and to enjoy the great sport of Rugby Union.
What do you need
The ethos and discipline of rugby is repected worldwide, but safety is always of the highest importance. To allow your child to enjoy and partake in all aspects of training there are a few essentials that they require. Pleas Note:
- It is a winter sport. Rugby Players are at home in the mud, rain and cold. Ensure your mini player is dressed accordingly. Layer their clothes to allow them to add or remove items during the session. Make sure they have dry clothes to change into after the session.
- It is a Collision Sport. Contact is introduced at U8s. Therefore gumshields are essential and mandatory. Please ensure they are correctly fitted. Other protective gear is optional at this time.
- Show Respect. As a rugby player you "just get on with with it"..... Respect for team mates, opposition, coaches and referees is the backbone of any rugby club. Bad Language, back-chat and Off-ball is not tolerated.
