Mini Warrior Session: Sunday 1st November 2020 10am- 11am

The Eccles RFC 'Mini Warrior' session will be a whole-club engagement event to celebrate our junior female players and give them an opportunity to engage and connect with their peers from other age groups. Our aim is to demonstrate to girls and parents, the progression pathway we have in place for junior players to develop at the club, promoting the goal of representing Eccles RFC in the Senior Women’s squad. 

The inclusive event will be similar in structure to the Senior Ladies RFU Inner Warrior initiative and the sessions will prioritise the enjoyment of rugby and the empowerment of female players. We hope it will help to build a larger profile for the Women & Girls community within the club and encourage recruitment at all levels. We hope this first pilot session will inspire our girls to become Eccles Rugby Ambassadors in their schools. A second session is planned for the end of November. 

Session 1

When: Sunday 1st November, 10am-11am.

Where: Eccles RFC, 1XV pitch.



On arrival, players will be categorised into three groups to participate in a tailored session with a coach, supported by a member of the Senior Ladies Team.  

Group 1: U5s, U6s, U7s.  Group 2: U8s, U9s, U10s. Group 3: U11s, U12s, U13s.

The three groups will use a separated space on the 1XV team pitch, with their own sanitising station and down time area. There will be no mixing of bubbles once the session begins and all participants will be required to complete a unique “Girls Rugby” proactive online declaration form in advance, to gain admittance to the session. 

All sessions will be in line with RFU age-grade regulations and led by a DBS certified RFU qualified Coach.  A touch rugby format will be adopted. There will be No Contact tackling.
