Under 8

Welcome 2019 / 2020 Ealing Under 8s

Hello and a warm welcome to the U8’s section from Pete Farr (Head Coach), Tom Girdham (Coach and Team Manger) and all the other volunteer coaches who help out on a weekly basis.

Ealing U8s are a welcoming and enthusiastic bunch of girls and boys who enjoy playing their Rugby together in a fun and engaging environment. We very focus our sessions on teamwork and inclusiveness and our aims are always to encourage and give the players the most enjoyable Rugby experience we can.

We train on a Sunday from 12noon until approx 1:15pm and we often participate in the West London League alongside other clubs such as London Welsh, Rosslyn Park and Teddington. We also enter teams into several Minis Festivals over the season which the children love and we will again be going on tour together (alongside other Ealing age groups) to play against other UK clubs in May 2020.

This will be the squad’s last season of tag rugby before they start the transition to contact rugby next year. Our training and matches will therefore focus on handling, tagging, passing, playing as a team, respecting the officials and staying in play.

Every year we welcome new players to the squad, many of whom have never played rugby before and we hope for more new players this year. If you are interested, please contact Tom Girdham through the contact details on this page.
