Welcome to Ashford Rugby Under 12s (Raptors)
Welcome to Ashford Rugby Under 12s (Raptors)
Our Team is For Those in Year 7 at School


Head Coach: John Heaver Coaches: Ian, Neil and Tom
New players are always welcome! We train on a Sunday morning from 10am - 12pm between the 1st and 3rd team pitches.
The Under 12’s will be playing games and concentrating in drills around contact Rugby, being taught how to tackle and be tackled and the start of scrummaging, rucks and mauls. Because of this contact, a gum shield is an essential item of equipment. These can be purchased in the clubhouse from behind the bar or in the club shop. Also, they can be purchased at sports shops and online. No gumshield, no contact! New players will be given some one on one training time with a coach to ensure they gain a standard to keep their wellbeing and safety at the very top of our priorities. Our aim is to teach the young players how to play rugby as safely as possible whilst instilling the core RFU principals of: Teamwork – Respect – Enjoyment – Discipline – Sportsmanship
To participate in training and games players should have the correct kit:
  • Sports Tops (no hoods/zips)
  • Shorts/Joggers
  • Trainers (studded boots in the wet)

  • Gumshield!
