Welcome to Chobham Rugby u10s
U10’s are a mixed age group and we welcome children in year 5 of all rugby experience. We have an excellent team of coaches and first aiders, who help the children to develop and flourish safely. We concentrate on being player-centric meaning that the focus is on each child’s potential rather than their current ability. Our emphasis is on enjoyment and encouraging a life-long love of rugby and teamwork.
As U10’s we continue playing contact and learn a multitude of new skills. The key elements of the Under 10s Rules of Play are:
• Team numbers: a maximum of 8-a-side
• Maximum pitch size: 60 metres x 35 metres
• Ball Size: 4
• Maximum minutes each half: 15
• Introduction of uncontested scrum
• Nearest 3 players in a scrum (all players trained, late specialisation)
• Contest for the ball (1 player v 1 player)
• Introduction of Maul
• Introduction of Ruck
We follow the RFU’s and Surrey’s Code of Practice and focus as much on team work and discipline as we do on rugby skills and our coaching philosophy is to ensure that all the children develop a passion for the game that will be lifelong. We will never seek to win for the sake of it, only for the feel good factor that comes from having tried your hardest to deliver an outstanding performance for the team.
We aim to have the highest standards when it comes to discipline and respect for the match officials, opponents and team mates. Sundays throughout the Season are varied: our children enjoy a mixture of training sessions at our home ground, triangular fixtures and festivals.
