About the team

Welcome to the homepage of the CRFC Youth sections

Whether you have been all the way through our cracking mini section or you just want a change of scenery the next step is our Youth section. We run at least 2 teams at every age group from U13 (Y8) up to U16 (Y11).

All our coaches undertake regular CPDs to keep them up to date and the majority have current playing knowledge. Each age group has a head coach, a team manager and you can contact them on the links below.

Coaching takes place on Sundays starting from 11am and mid-week training varies depending on the age group, please aim arrive at least 15mins before the session for a prompt start and to avoid car park congestion. Parking is provided in our spacious car park.

After coaching, we welcome players into the clubhouse main room (straight ahead at the top of the stairs) where you can purchase drinks and food but **** Please remove rugby boots before going upstairs ****

Throughout the season we will be participating in several matches both home and away against other clubs. The duration will be an estimated time of 1 hour with travel typically up to 90 mins for away fixtures.

In addition to matches we’ll participate in several festivals (or tournaments). The duration is typically a full day, with travel up to 2 hours. No food or beverages are provided by CRFC or the hosting club for festivals although onsite catering is provided and often other entertainment for the kids between and after fixtures. Please feel free to bring chairs, blankets, umbrellas, picnic etc.

We try to balance the number of matches and festivals evenly between the squads.

Kit
You will know most of this anyway, but it is important that our players are warm and hopefully as dry as conditions allow. Activities will continue whatever the weather (providing it remains safe).
· Rugby boots or appropriate footwear and Trainers (please note that if your son is being coached / playing a match on an all-weather pitch he / she must wear studded boots – (trainers / bladed boots are not allowed)
· Rugby training kit, to include waterproof top and a hat
· Protective equipment if desired
· Gum shield / mouth guard – correctly fitted
· Change of clothing for wet-weather conditions
· Drinks bottle

During fixtures the club provides players with a match play top which should be returned at the end of the fixture so the club can launder it ready for the next fixture.

Club Shop
Our club shop is open at various times during the week and at weekends – it stocks all our CRFC kit as well as other rugby related merchandise, ideal for the last-minute gift or panic.

Pitchero
Every player (or parents in the case of U16s), supporter, official or anyone interested in our club should go to www.colchesterrugby.co.uk and click the join button in the top right hand corner – it is free to join our website. Follow the prompts to enable you (and your player) on the system. You can opt out of communication from the club although we would rather you did not.
Once members have joined, the club will ensure that you are assigned to the correct role and team, so that you can access the information available about fixtures, coaching, and events. Team Managers will prompt players or parents to select availability for training or matches, results and other information can be uploaded so the club website will become a central hub for everything club related.

Please do come and see our fantastic new facilities and enjoy the best sport in the world.
