WELCOME TO MINI & YOUTH RUGBY IN OLD WESLEY

Welcome

A warm welcome for the 2021/22 season and to the vibrant Mini & Youth section of our club.

Mini & Youth Rugby in Old Wesley

Our aim is to provide a safe, non competitive, enjoyable environment through activities which ensure progressive skill development for all participants in line with the IRFU Long Term Development (LTPD) pathway, Child Welfare Policy and Traditions of Rugby Union.  You can visit www.irishrugby.ie to view these policies to which Old Wesley RFC adhere to.  All our Coaches and Volunteers are Garda Vetted and have age appropriate accreditation of coaching skills.

We welcome all from 6 years to 6 Nations and many of our former Minis players have gone onto great things, most recently Andrew Porter, of Leinster & Ireland, being picked for the initial British & Irish Lions Squad to South Africa this year and Ryan Baird receiving the first of many Senior Caps.

We have current Youths players who recently represented Leinster Metro U15s and very recently Tom Larke, who was in that group, has now been selected for the Irish Clubs U18s.

We are currently running Minis teams from U6/U7s (Born in 2015/16) to U12s (Born in 2010) and Youths teams from U13 (Born in 2009) to U18.5 (Born in 2004/03). We are also very proud to have started a Girls’ Section for U8s upwards during the summer this year. It must be noted that we also welcome all to play in the Minis section no matter the gender as the teams are combined through U12s.

We train and play between three venues:

  • Ballycorus, Kilternan, Co. Dublin,
  • Energia Stadium Donnybrook, Dublin 4, and
  • Wesley College, Ballinteer, Dublin 16.
