Welcome to Hove U8’s. Our aim at Hove U8’s is to ensure every player develops their rugby skills and overall confidence whilst having some fun and making some mates.
The team trains on Sundays at Hove Rec between 10:00-12:00. The first session of the new season will be on 3rd September 2017.
This year, as U8’s, it’s still tag rugby (non-contact) so nothing scary, and therefore the perfect time for kids to come and have a try - everyone is welcome (the first couple of weeks of the new season are treated as free try-outs).
Friendlies and festivals are also played on Sunday mornings throughout the season. Once the player has figured the basics skills they’ll be picked to play – the focus is on maximising all player’s involvement, development and enjoyment rather than the score.
So far we’ve enjoyed plenty of success on the field, have a great squad with healthy numbers. Just as importantly we now have a team of six enthusiastic coaches.
Above all, for both player and parent, rugby is a social game where all concerned learn a lot more than just sports skills.
