Minis Division

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

USRC Tigers Mini Rugby Season 2014/15: First day of training on 7 September!

Congrats to our Hong Kong 7s men's team, including debutant and USRC Tiger Jack Capon, on winning the first leg of the ARFU Sevens Series last weekend at the HKFC.
Great stuff also from the Women's squad who won silver after sensationally beating Japan in the semis but then losing to China in a hard fought final.
It was very nice to see so many of our little tigers in the stadium.

Just to reconfirm: our official season start will be on Sunday, 7 September. A couple of age groups will start a week earlier on pitch 3. Those will be contacted by their respective head coaches.

USRC Tigers Minis - New Season Registration now open

I trust you all have had a great summer so far and are eagerly looking forward to another season of awesome rugger.

As you are probably aware, the pitches at Kings Park are in the process of getting some much needed TLC. Therefor, as things look like at the moment, it is unlikely that we can start our season on the previously anticipated August 24.
Instead, Sunday September 7th looks like a more probable date.

We might have KP pitch 3 available earlier and there might also be a chance to use KGV for a couple of Sundays but non of those options will allow us to have a proper season start with all age groups.
Therefor if we do make use of those alternatives the head coaches of your age group will let you know in a separate mail.

During the summer the club went through a lot of changes, most notably linking up with the USRC, making us now officially the USRC Tigers. I will go into more details on what that means for our club and it's members in a later email.

SSP Festival and A5N

I hope all of you had some relaxing Easter holidays.

  

SSP Festival on Sunday

Last festival of the season this Sunday (for those who have signed up) at the Shatin Sports Ground. Check with your head coaches for details.



Asian 5 Nations


Hong Kong will be facing the Philippine Volcanoes today (Saturday) in their first game of this years A5N tournament. This year, finishing 1st (fat chance) will get you an automatic berth at next years rugby World Cup, while finishing second (now we're talking) will lead into a playoff with Uruguay, the winner of which will qualify as well.

Kick off is at 6pm at the HKFC.
The place fills up very quickly so get there early. Lots of curtain raiser games will be played beforehand to keep you entertained.

 

Go Tigers!
