Guildfordians Minis Festival 10th March 2024
Saturday 30th Mar 24

One of our teams after an enjoyable day

This year’s season has been noted for its wet weather but a little rain on the morning of the 10th March did little to dampen the excitement as Guildfordians Rugby Football Cub welcomed over 1000 children from around the south of England to their Minis Rugby Festival at the Stoke Park, Guildford ground....
 
 
 
The Minis’ section of Guildfordians Rugby Club is its beating heart.

We start at the age of 3 in Micros and run right through to Under 11’s. We train on Sunday mornings between 10 and 12, with some ages running a one hour session and some running sessions up to 2 hours.

A child’s age group is determined by their age at midnight on 31st August so, for example, a child who at midnight on 31st August is aged 7 would enter the Under 8s (U8s).

In Micros things start in a relatively simple way – even getting the children to run in a straight line is an accomplishment! We introduce ball skills and team games, learning to have your tag taken without the need for floods of tears is an important aim. Sometimes this takes rather a long time! Don’t worry! The players are not thrown into full contact rugby.

Throughout all the Minis age groups we try to give the children confidence, while instilling some discipline, but it’s most important to have fun. Children learn best through fun.

To find out more about our Rugby Values please see our About page.



Moving on from the Micros, the ‘tag game’ is played at under 7’s and under 8’s. Contact Rugby is not permitted until under 9’s. Further aspects of the full 15 a side game are introduced gradually following the RFUs guidelines.

Great highlights of our year are our the festivals, we aim to host 2 Mini festivals a year - one in the Autumn and one in Spring. Our under 7’s to under 11’s play in the festivals against teams from all over the South East, some coming from as far away as Guernsey.

In between the festivals, there will be home training and opportunities for joint training sessions and matches with other local clubs. These sessions give our players a chance to hone their skills and interact with players outside of their club.

We are a very friendly, volunteer run club, with social events throughout the year and a fantastic family rugby tour each May,

We actively encourage parental participation and most of our coaches simply started off as willing parent helpers.

So, what’s stopping you and your Mini? A warm welcome awaits you all at Guildfordians Rugby Club whatever age your child is.

Training areas and times are at the bottom of this page.


The 2023-24 season starts on Sunday 3rd September come along and Pitch Up for Rugby with the Minis.

We are looking forward to seeing you at Stoke Park.
