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

weekly update

It's the Tai Po RFC Mini Rugby Festival this Sunday at Kings Park and I hope everyone is ready to go into battle. Please check with your head coaches for details and the schedule.
U12s boys and girls will be playing their cup games at Happy Valley.


Premiership

The Tigers will be playing Football Club at the lovely HKFC on Saturday (17th). All premiership games will be at the same venue throughout the afternoon, so it's gonna be a great day of rugby. Tigers kick off at 18:30.
We had some 100 DeA supporters there for the game earlier in the season and it would be nice to see many of you again. Dress the kids in our kit!


7s ticket update

We have received our allocation and it's even worse than expected. We are severely short of both, adult and kids tickets.
Therefore we will have to introduce some painful measures to allow a fair allocation.

Since U6s won't be playing at the 7s showcase, they were not included in the ticket allocation by the HKRFU. Therefor, unfortunately, they will be on the bottom of the queue.

To ensure transparency in the process, the priority order for ticket allocation is based on the following:

1. Committee members, former chairs, persons active in the administration and running of the club and their registered playing children at minis
2. General Age Group Head Coaches, Managers and their registered playing children at minis
3. Assistant Coaches and their registered playing children at minis

Training Update

Back to regular training for everyone at Kings Park tomorrow (Sun)! Just one session before next week's Tai Po RFC festival so I would like to see a large turnout.

Premiership game tonight at 6pm at KP: Tigers vs HK Scottish (last chance for tokens before 7s ticket allocation)

 

Go Tigers!

weekly update

Hope y'all had a great Christmas an got what you asked for from Santa.

A few bits below for your reference, please read and store to memory accordingly.

Congrats to those U12 Tigers who have been selected to play for the Peninsula Dragons at tomorrow's Prudential New Year's Day Tournament. Our club is immensely proud of you and we wish you great games against the Island sides.

For all of you who want to witness some of HK's finest mini and youth players in action please make your way to the HKFC tomorrow. Games will be played from 10am to 7 pm. Considering the date "hair of the dog" cures shall be readily available.

 

Since we only have the KGV ground available it is very likely that ONLY CONTACT AGE GROUPS will train on Sunday, January 4th, (please keep an eye on your inbox for any updates/changes from your head coaches!!!) while U6, U7 and U8 will have another week of rest.

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone back in the New Year and here's to a Happy one for us all!

 

Go Tigers!
