Welcome to the Junior Section
We have an experienced coaching staff who meet regulalry and are encouraged to strive for various RFU qualifications.
Matches are played every Sunday morning from September to April. We seek friendly fixtures against other local clubs and occasionally take part in larger tournaments (festivals) involving several clubs. Training takes place on Wednesday evenings.
Our players come from near and far – not just Torquay!
Our emphasis is on having fun and staying safe. We believe that children will not develop unless they are enjoying themselves. Not only is the rugby fun, playing for the Tics gives the children the chance to make new friends.
Up to Under 8s, all children play “tag” rugby – a non-contact game in which the emphasis is on basic co-ordination and handling (catching and passing). At Under 9 and above, the children are introduced to contact rugby (this means they can tackle their opponent). Some children take to this immediately. Many others are less certain and we completely understand this. No child is forced to do anything he or she does not want to do.
