Doncaster Rugby Football Club have thriving Mini/Junior section with several hundred young rugby players playing out of Castle Park every weekend. We run age groups from Under 7s through to Senior Colts [U19s] and are always to welcome new members into our beloved game. The Mini/Junior section, whilst striving to achieve the best form each age group, closely adheres to Rugby Union's Core Values as underlined below by our Mini/Junior Chairman, John Steadman.
The club aims to ensure that players, coaches, parents, spectators and volunteers uphold the Core Values of rugby union, Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship. These values will stand our young people in good stead both on and off the rugby pitch and are reflected in the RFU’s Code of Rugby.
Last season Doncaster RFC managed to both win with dignity and lose with grace and we are proud that our young teams are renowned for their fair play as for their successes. We are also proud of our RFU Accreditation status, which recognises our achievement in reaching and maintaining the standard of a club committed to providing a quality rugby union experience for young players.
Doncaster RFC is a local club at the heart of our community, with links with local schools. We are delighted by the number of players who progress up the age levels and into senior teams. Keeping players involved throughout their school days and beyond means that they benefit from being part of the rugby family and from the friendships and health benefits that our sport offers.
The credit for our success as a club is due to the commitment of our young players, the endeavours of the club’s qualified and enthusiastic coaches, our many marvellous volunteers, our players’ parents and supporters and our sponsors. We would like to thank you all and look forward to your continued support.
With a full fixture programme and a full programmed of social events coming up, we would be delighted to see our new players and their parents and families fully involved. We are always glad to have help, so please talk about volunteer roles with our volunteer coordinator, coaches, managers or myself.
Registration day is always tremendously busy, so I would ask for your patience and understanding as there are many tasks to perform to ensure that the club lives up to its high standards so that your children are properly registered and cared for in the coming season. I would also ask for registration to be paid within four weeks of registration so that we can handle the finances to everyones benefit. However, if any parent or guardian has a particular financial need this can be discussed in confidence with myself or our Community Rugby Manager Lisa Davis.
