Mini rugby

It's not the winning but the spirit of fair-play, enjoyment and safety that is paramount.

This aim forms the basis upon which mini rugby is structured in Hong Kong and, indeed, in many countries. A competitive spirit is inevitable in any sport, but with children this should not be allowed to dominate or to detract from the joy of simply playing this game.

Currently there are more than a dozen clubs in Hong Kong offering mini rugby to almost three thousand children! It is arguably the best organised sport for children in Hong Kong featuring multi-club festivals and involvement in the international Hong Kong Rugby Sevens.

The Hong Kong Mini Rugby Union oversees the game for players under 12 and arranges for all players to be insured. All clubs are represented and through this body maintain links with the HKRFU, which provides financial and training support. The last five years has seen a dramatic move from a sport previously dominated by expatriates to one in which all sectors of the community are involved especially the Chinese population.

The rules of mini rugby attempt to maximise the opportunities of each player to become involved in the game, develop skills commensurate with their age, and maintain safety. Details of the basic rules can be found in the either the indiviual team sections or for the various age groups in the Referee section. It is very important that everyone (coaches, players, parents and referees) has read and understood the code of conduct

It was great to see so many kids braving the slightly cooler weather and showing up for training last Sunday. Too bad the bar ran out of hot chocolate so early.

Regular training again this Sunday from 8:30am. Please check with your head coach about the following Sunday (7th). We do have the pitches available and I am aware that a few age groups want to have a run.

weekly update

The Tai Po Dragons mini rugby festival will be held tomorrow at King's Park and I trust all of you are looking forward to some great games.
To celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year of Monkey, Tai Po RFC have arranged a Lion Dance and 財神 will deliver fortunes to all.
 

The HK marathon will be held tomorrow as well and many roads will be closed so make sure you to factor this in and allow for some extra travel time.

Also, it will likely be cold and rainy which is GOOD weather for rugby and no excuse to stay at home. If your little tiger has signed up to play then don't leave your team hanging.
 
 
7s tickets
 
Our ticket allocation looks a bit healthier this season. While we might have to make some tiny cuts to requests for kids tickets, we will be able to cover all requested adult tickets.
We do have a good amount of extra Sunday adult tickets available. If you are interested in any of those please send me an email.
