Welcome to Moseley RFC Under 8s.


Our new season will commence on Sunday 03rd September 2016 and run through to the end of April 2017 when we will all go on tour!


We are based on the Moseley RFC all-weather pitch behind the new main stand. Training sessions take place on Sunday mornings, are 1½ hours long and start promptly at 10.30am to ensure everyone stays warm through the winter months.


Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately. Boots or trainers and regular sports kit are fine. Billesley Common can feel very exposed in winter though, so it is vital to be wrapped up warm and plenty of layers are useful. Rugby sticky mitts keep small fingers warm and really help with ball handling skills when it is cold and damp. Please bring a drink for your child.


We do not operate any form of pre-registration or waiting list. It is simply a matter of attending for a few weeks to see if your child enjoys the sessions and wants to be part of our Under 8s group. The subscription for the Under 8s is £60 for the full season (£40 for additional children from the same family). If you have any difficulties with paying the subscription then please speak to one of the team or any member of the Junior Committee.


New players, both boys and girls alike, are very welcome and will be accommodated into our sessions. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch, with email usually being the easiest way to get hold of us. Our details are shown above.


We really need the help of parents to get involved in whatever capacity, but especially supporting in the running of our sessions. The more parents who support the quicker and safer the games become, leading to greater enjoyment for our young players. Please do not feel that you need to have prior rugby experience and it is a great way to keep warm in January. If you wish to get more involved then Moseley RFC Junior Section will support you and pay for suitable RFU training courses.


Our coaching philosophy follows that of the RFU - fully inclusive - and our priority is having fun. The ‘Core Values’ of rugby union are teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship. The Under 8s fall into the Fundamental Stage for ages 6-9 which aims to develop the ABCS of athleticism – Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed. We recognise that we really win when everyone has had a great time and made new friends.


We look forward to seeing you at Billesley soon
