WELCOME TO YOUTH RUGBY IN OLD WESLEY
A warm welcome for the 2019/20 season.
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 are currently running teams from U13s (Born 2007) up to U17’s (Born 2002). We offer a 2 week trial period for new members after which registration must be completed. This is done by completion of a Registration Form where your details will be forwarded to the office. We operate a Smartclub membership system whereby you will receive an email regarding the set-up of your member’s account and payment of the registration fee online.
To comply with insurance and Leinster Branch requirements, all players are required to play within their designated age grade. This is determined by their year of birth (e.g. Born in 2006 – calendar year 1st January – eligible to play at U14’s for this season).
All registered mini and youth players who have their yearly subscriptions paid, are covered by the IRFU Group Scheme for Clubs. This insurance policy covers major incidents and is limited in its cover. There is €100 policy excess. It is recommended that parents have addition private health insurance in place to cover their children.
Training is every Sunday morning during the playing season which runs from beginning of September to the start of May – in either Ballycorus or Donnybrook. There will be a break from training/fixtures at Christmas, Mid-term school breaks and Easter.
11.00am to 12.00pm – For Teams from Under 13 upwards.
There is mid-week training, usually either Wednesday or Thursday from 7 – 8pm for U13’s in Ballycorus. Parents and players should check with their coach regarding this as it is at the discretion of the Coach.
Matches are played either at home or away according to Fixtures and details will be sent to each parent.
Details of Training times and venue are sent by non reply text message. Each coach may have their own additional method of communication with their team.
Our Club strip is navy playing shorts, blue socks and a red/navy/white playing jersey. These can be purchased any Sunday in Ballycorus.
