Mini & Youth Rugby at KLRUFC – All are welcome!

Mini and  Youth rugby is all about having fun and every Sunday, throughout the season, we have hundreds of children from Under 6 (the Micros) to Under 16 enjoying our wonderful game.

Our coaches, all volunteers, having taken courses to help them deliver fun and engaging sessions, providing coaching which is age specific to help your child get the most out of it.

Helping our coaches we have some of our senior rugby players and coaching staff joining in. At Kirkby Lonsdale our inclusiveness and one club ethos is central to everything we do as are the core values of rugby; Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and sportsmanship; all values that work on and off the pitch.

While the children are playing, parents and guardians have the perfect opportunity to become part of our family, enjoying a hot drink and a bacon roll from our clubhouse, meeting with other parents and, if you want, to get involved with the club helping on or off the pitch. Many a strong friendship has started around the club for players and their families.

We’d like to invite you and your family to come and sample life at the club, to come and watch and take part. For new players of all ages we provide 2 sessions free. If you like it, you can join as a junior player for just £100 per season. The new season starts on the 8th September at 10.30am. If you would like to come and have a go or have any questions please contact who can answer any questions you may have and introduce you to your age groups coaches.
