Welcome to Rochdale RUFC Junior Girls’ Section! This is an exciting place to be right now – we are growing fast, and have lots of great opportunities for our girls!

We currently have two teams: under-12s (year 6 & 7) and under-14s (year 8 & 9). And all girls from year 5 up to year 11 are welcome to train with us – we have plenty of coaches so we can accommodate a wide range of ages and abilities.

We train every Tuesday 6.30-7.30pm, and on Sundays we either play fixtures or train.

Please contact Rachel (07779 72 92 92) for more details – we are ALWAYS looking for new players, of all levels of experience.

You may have noticed that our fixtures look slightly different to the rest of the minis and juniors section: In order to get as much rugby as possible for the girls, as well as playing matches against individual clubs, we regularly play ‘cluster fixtures’ with teams from multiple clubs in one day.

At Development Days, we meet with other teams and coaches from across the region and receive some skill-specific training. These days end with a match or two, in which the girls can practise the skills they’ve learnt in the session. These Days are great rugby-learning opportunities!
