Girls' Rugby has launched for the first time at London Welsh with a training session that took place on 15th September.
Almost a dozen girls – some of whom were experienced players and others who were new to the game – enjoyed a stimulating session coached by Paula “Coops” Cooper, Chair of Women’s and Girls’ Rugby at London Welsh, and her team of helpers.
Girls' rugby is played in two-year age brackets and the youngsters on the pitch last weekend were currently either U12 or U13. We are seeking to recruit more girls in their first two years of secondary school (years 7 and 8).
On Sunday, 22nd September at 11am the club will be hosting a Girls' Rugby Inner Warrior Taster session run by community coaches from the RFU. The session promises to be a fun-packed, commitment-free way for girls to get out and experience the dynamic, exhilarating sport of rugby for the first time.
The Inner Warrior session offers the perfect opportunity to introduce some new faces with no obligation to join.
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.
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 - come and join us on Sunday!
