Welcome to the Minis section at Effingham & Leatherhead RFC, and welcome to what I’m sure is going to be an extremely successful 2014/15 season. Our Minis section is made up of age groups spanning from Under 6s to Under 12s.

Each of our age groups are supported by a dedicated team of coaches and volunteers (made up primarily of parents). The focus of all the coaches is to teach the core skills of rugby in a fun and friendly environment whilst also promoting the RFU core rugby values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.

We train at home on a Sunday morning from 1000 to 1200 at the King George V playing fields, Browns Lane, Effingham. As well as training at home on a Sunday we also enter various local rugby festivals throughout the season and hold joint training sessions with some of our neighbouring clubs around Surrey.

Our club house kitchen is open every Sunday morning during training serving hot drinks and breakfast rolls, as well as burgers and hot dogs. Visiting the club house after training is a great way for the children and parents to enjoy each other’s company away from the pitch whilst also enjoying a hot snack, some well-earned sweets from the tuck shop, or even a refreshing drink from the club bar.

I look forward to very successful and enjoyable season
