Lordswood R.F.C. Mini’s

Under 9’s Squad


The Lordswood RFC U9 squad comprises of mixed teams of boys and girls entering school year 4 at the start of the season, the team size for a game is 7 players on a pitch size of 60m x 30m.

We train on Sunday mornings at 10am and run through to around 11.30am, the focus remains firmly on Fun and Friendship whilst delivering both the core values of Rugby Union and Lordswood RFC :

Loyalty, Obligation, Respect, Discipline and Sportsmanship (LORDS).

We coach in line with the RFU’s Age Grade Rugby, which is based on the principles of player centred, development driven and competition supported. The wants and needs of young people will be at its heart. It will put player enjoyment above all else to keep more young people enjoying the game for longer and into their adult years.


Under 9s start learning more about tackling and move away from tag rugby this means it is important that your child brings a gum shield to training sessions and tournaments.

Please make sure your child has suitable boots for the ground conditions, suitable clothes to train and play in and refreshments with them during the sessions.
