With no rugby experience required from any girls wanting to try out rugby, Dunstablians RUFC and Stockwood Park RFC are offering pitch up and play sessions to girls from age 10 through to 18.
In line with the RFU #innerwarrior and ‘ release your inner warrior’ campaigns to encourage girls to try out contact rugby two of the local rugby clubs in Bedfordshire and on the Hertfordshire border are offering sessions for girls to come and give rugby ‘a go’.
Stockwood Park and Dunstablians have combined their resources to give the best possible exposure and experience to any girls wanting to try rugby with sessions running alternately across the two clubs.
With a mix of female and male coaching staff on hand to run the sessions girls of any experience can come along and take part in the sessions. The sessions will cater for players of absolutely no experience at all to players that have played for years – you will fit right in irrespective of your level of experience!
The sessions will involve a warm-up along with some basic drills and then into a game against other girls of the same skill level. If you are feeling nervous about playing a game, come along, do the warmup and skills and you can the watch the games and jump in at any point if you decide you want to have a go! You can also just watch and make your mind up at a later time.
Some of the pitch and play sessions will be followed by our ladies team playing their next league match, keep an eye out on our website for where these dates overlap.
