This venture came about after several conversations between coaches of the Minis Section and the several Womens Team Players. Everyone agreed it wasn’t fair to make our Under 11 girls, who had spent years playing rugby at Welsh, go elsewhere to carry on playing - indeed, some girls were deciding to give up rugby if it meant playing elsewhere.
On 17th June all interested parties got together at ODP and the Girls Section was formed. It was decided we would initially focus on building an Under 13 Team, who will train on a Sunday at 11am at Old Deer Park. We may be able to accommodate U15s players at training also. The first training session will take place on 15th September 2019 where the girls will have the opportunity to watch the London Welsh Womens Team play Barnes Ladies after their training session. Also, the club will be holding a Girls Rugby Inner Warrior Taster Session on 22nd September at 11am. This will be run by community coaches from the RFU.
The London Welsh Girls team will be coached by experienced coaches from London Welsh Minis and London Welsh Womens Team who are all DBS Checked.
For any girls under 11 we would encourage you to join our minis section. Although teams are mixed at these age groups we are looking to run some girls sessions and arrange some girls fixtures at younger age groups, to give them an opportunity to showcase their talents and experience girls rugby.
We take players of all abilities and experience, rugby is for everyone regardless of size, shape, fitness and ability. We want to give everyone the opportunity to play the game that we all love. Girls looking for a new challenge for their Physical Section of their Duke of Edinburgh award are welcome, one of the Coaches is a DofE Leader and familiar with the assessor report process.
