Micro Rugby at Deeside RFC includes players, both boys and girls, in Primary 1 through to Primary 3. Micro Rugby is all about fun, lots of running and catching whilst most of the time holding and throwing a rugby ball.
Micro Rugby is non-contact. We use tags attached to belts by Velcro for any games. Removing a tag is like tackling.
We use size 3 balls, which are specifically made for children under the age of 8.
Training sessions are generally held at the Woodend pitches, Banchory on Saturday mornings starting at 9:30am and finishing at 10:45am. If the weather is good we sometimes run over as the kids (and coaches!) are having so much fun and like wise if the weather is poor we may finish early.
