Minis & Juniors at ORFC

Welcome to Oakham Rugby Club!

 

Oakham Rugby Club was founded in 1923 and moved to its current site at the start of the 2014/15 season. The club house and grounds are a great facility (and available for hire too!)

 

Training and fixtures 

Mini and junior training and matches take place every Sunday morning from 10.30am – 12.00 mid-day. Junior fixtures (U13’s – U18’s) normally kick off at 11.00am.

The season begins on the first Sunday in September and runs to the first weekend in May when we celebrate the end of the season with our presidents’ weekend

There are a number of matches for all ages throughout the season. These include a number of friendlies (both home and away) and county cup and other competitions.

In addition, U0’s – U12’s organise a (collective) tour each season. Junior teams (U13’s upwards) often organise their own tours too

 

 

Information for each age group will be issued by the relevant coaching/admin team at the start of each week

Playing Policy 

It is club policy that ALL players will get to play in friendly fixtures irrespective of ability.

For competitive fixtures (such as county cup matches) coaches will select a side and your child may not be involved. We ask parents to respect the coaches’ decision

Please always be punctual for both fixtures and training, home or away

The club provides all players a snack (very often a hot dog) after each Sunday session. This is included within the membership subscription

 

Membership and fees – VERY IMPORTANT!

Every mini, junior (and senior) must become a member of the club.

The parent/guardian for every mini and junior must also have a family membership. If you have more than one child you only require 1 family membership or senior membership

 

Annual fees are as follows:

U6’s = £25 + £30 family membership = £55 total

U7’s – U12’s = £40 + £30 family membership = £70 total

U13’s – U18’s = £50 + £30 family membership = £80 total

 

Your year group admin rep will be able to help you through the membership process, but payment is made by accessing the web site and clicking on the tab marked “Register for subs”

Payment MUST be completed by the end of September at the very latest.

 

RFU Registration 

In addition to club membership, all M&J players will need to be RFU registered

A couple of passport photos of the player are required.

Team admin reps will complete this process for you, but will require certain details from you

 

 

Codes of conduct – players, parents, spectators and coaches

Rugby should be played for fun and by the rules. It is a team game and not an individual sport.

Players should never be forced to play against their will and should be encouraged for good performances not just results

Referees, officials and coaches should be respected. They do make mistakes and are volunteers.

Further details on the code of conduct is available on the website.

 

Home teams should ensure that their changing room is left in a clean and tidy condition, along with that of their opponents

 

Kit

Players should always wear official Oakham shirts, shorts and socks which are available from the club shop. Team shirts are available for junior matches (U13-18’s)

Players should always wear rugby boots (but never in the clubhouse).

Players from U9’s upwards should always wear mouth guards. These are available from sports shops, online, dentists, and even from behind the bar if you forget on a Sunday!

Players should also be equipped with tracksuits, wet weather tops, etc.

All kit should be clearly marked with the player’s name.

 

Being a member of ORFC 

We encourage all parents and players to take an active role in the club.

The clubhouse is there for both players and their parents to socialise.

As well as both junior and senior rugby, there are a number of social events that take place at the club throughout the year.

There are always opportunities for volunteers so please let your age group team know if you can help!

Courses are available for injury, first aid and safeguarding, in addition to coaching and refereeing qualifications too

 

Dogs 

For health and safety reasons, dogs are not permitted anywhere on the rugby club’s grounds.
