About Lordswood RFC Youth Rugby

At Lordswood Rugby Club, we are passionate about rugby and building a strong community around this thrilling sport. Our ethos is simple – rugby for all ages should be fun, but in particular, for young players, we want to instil in them the core values of rugby and hopefully nurture a lifelong love of the game.

All are welcomed

All our coaches are fully qualified, and DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) is checked to ensure your child gets maximum benefit and enjoyment in a safe environment.
