Pathway development

Our Mini-rugby development pathway follows those that have been structured, tried and tested by unions around the world. The pathway is designed to introduce 5 to 12 year olds to the skills and technical aspects of Rugby Union in a controlled and graduated environment. Playing the game at Centaurs ensures the child’s development and progression to the 15-a-side game (at U13s) is smooth and safe.

Before they begin developing their game we run a U5s squad, for 3 and 4 year olds. This group is all about motor-skill development with a rugby theme, focusing on playing games and having fun.

U10s and above are involved with competitive leagues. We enter teams at each of the U10s to U17s age groups for the JRCS league.

U13s to U17s are taught and play the full 15-a-side game to World Rugby U19s Laws.
