Welcome to Bolton U7s Team Page.
The U7s play tag rugby where a tackle is made by removing one of the tags hanging from a velcro belt around the waist of the ball carrier. This is a non contact form of rugby; there are no scrums, rucks, mauls, line outs or kicks of any kind.
The training emphasis is on the players developing their agility, balance and co-ordination within small sided fun games. In matches the emphasis is on personal competitive performance rather than outcome, with fun and participation for all the players a key factor as they develop their rugby skills.
To be eligible for the U7s players must be aged 6 on 31 August 2015, usually Year 2 at school; both boys and girls are welcome.
As we know the demands on parents and children are high, U7 training is limited to 30 mins before any match (usually 10.30am – 11am at the venue of the match) and an 1 hr to a max 1hr 30 mins on those Sundays where no game is scheduled (starting at 10.30am).
Please feel free to come down and meet the coaches and team!
