Join the Mini & Youth Section
Blandford RFC runs a Junior Section for mini and youth players. This is open to all children, both girls and boys, of all abilities. The emphasis is always being enjoyment and fun. There is also a Bulldogs session which is for younger brothers and sisters not old enough to join a team but who just want to get involved.
Training and matches run during the rugby season which is from the begining of September through to April of the following year. All training and home fixtures are played on the sports pitches, Larksmead.
There is a full fixture list where our teams play other Clubs throughout Dorset and Wilts in friendly matches during the season, check out the fixtures page to see where we go!
If you are interested in bringing your child or children along then just turn up on a Sunday morning during the season and one of our CRB registered coaches will be on hand to offer advice.
If you decide to join you child/children then you will need to talk to the Membership Secretary for details how to register them on the England Rugby GMS system. You will also need to complete the Club Application Form and pay membership fees. This will then ensure your child/children are covered by the RFU insurance scheme and also allows parents social membership of the Club.
There will be other documentation for you to complete which records any medical condition your child suffers from should this require emergency pitch side treatment. There is also the Photographic Permission Form without which your child's image will not be used in any publicity material or appear in photos on our website. Your child's safety and security is of primary importance to us.
This is just the start for our younger players, many have gone on to play Senior Rugby either at University or for our own First and Second XV sides.
