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

I hope everyone had a relaxing summer and you are ready for another exciting rugby season. We will have our first training session on Sunday, September 4th so please don't hesitate and register with the rgeatest club in town at www.usrctigersminirugby.com.
For all newcomers: if you want to try out first, there is no need to pay yet. Just come to King's Park on Sept 4th and let your kids have a run.

For those who do pay, please hang on to proof of payment which will be needed to receive your kit for the season.


I'm looking forward to see all of you soon!

 

Go Tigers!

Thanks to everyone who brought some food last Sunday and to those who gave the U12s boys and girls a fitting send-off. We wish all graduates all the best for their future careers in Tigers youth rugby.

Our rugby season has come to an end and a big thanks goes to all volunteers that helped make it a successful one. The 2016/17 season will start in late August and registration will open around July. Watch your mailbox for any updates throughout the summer.

 

Get well soon Celine!

weekly update

We will have our last training of the season and the U12s graduation this Sunday. As in previous years it would be nice if everyone could bring a plate of food to share.

The HK XV Women National team will have a training session on KP1 from 9:30 so we will have to vacate that pitch and might start opening the buffet a bit earlier than usual.

On Saturday many of our Tiger Lillies will play at the All Girls Tournament at KP. If you are in the neighbourhood please come down and cheer them on!
Also on Saturday there will be a match between Hong Kong and the visiting Chiefs Development squad at Hong Kong Football Club as part of HKFCs Taipan Day. KO is at 15:45pm.

Just as reminder: A-Hau's summer course will commence on April 28th and then run every Thursday from 6 - 7:30pm at KP until June 23rd.
Check with your head coaches or email Hau (hau1638@yahoo.com.hk) or simply show up on the day and register.

Go Tigers!

  I hope that by now everyone has recovered from the HK Sevens weekend.

We have one more regular training session this Sunday, April 17th, before our season ending fun day next week.

If the end of the season comes too early for you don’t fret: The legendary Hau will again start his summer course right after our season has finished.  Check with your head coaches for details.

 

 

Go Tigers!
