Welcome to Chobham Rugby u9s
At Chobham, we strive to provide a safe and controlled environment in which our players can develop not only as rugby players but as young people too. Coaches and management are acutely aware that we have a responsibility to help mould our players into rounded individuals and we do so by aligning our coaching with the RFU’s set of core values: Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.
We put real emphasis on enjoyment with training sessions designed to be fun as well as purposeful. With over 75 players registered and 20 coaches regularly making themselves available, there is a strong feeling of togetherness within the group, further strengthened by an active and engaged set of parents. While many of our players have been with the club since U5s we welcome new players throughout the season and regularly monitor their development to ensure a safe integration to the sport. Together our squad has developed a wonderful team spirit, so often on show in recent festivals, and they are beginning to play some quality rugby.
U9s is a key season for the players with the introduction of tackling. Our approach through the season is to lay the foundations that will enable players to become effective tacklers as they grow through the ages. With a number of Level 2 qualified coaches within our ranks, we structure our training sessions to be active, purposeful, enjoyable and safe in order to meet the RFU’s guidelines and to give the players every chance of having long and enjoyable rugby careers.
