Welcome to McLaren RFC
We're back! See the Covid Response page for full details.
We are an inclusive, family friendly rugby club.
We have thriving a mini section for children and young people aged 5yrs- 12yrs (P1-P7).
Midis and youths train and play in collaboration with McLaren High School.
Senior rugby is currently informal touch games and 'pop up' games, our aim is that we reinstate a senior rugby team in the future.
No experience necessary! We support any new players throughout the first few sessions to enable a smooth transition to existing groups. There is no obligation to sign up to membership until the children know they want to continue.
P1 –P3 provides coordination, fitness and the essential building blocks of non-contact rugby.
P4 Introduces and develops good contact and tackling technique.
P5 – P7 builds on these skills and introduces further key aspects of the game like line-out and scrummaging.
All players are encouraged to take part in a full calendar of fixtures throughout the season.
Training sessions are run per year group by PVG certified, RugbyRight qualified coaches.
Rugby teaches children teamwork, responsibility and communication. It offers an opportunity to get outdoors, get muddy, make friends with kids from local schools, play in competitions and most of all be active and have fun!
