Longton Rugby Club – Mini/Junior Section


 Longton Rugby Club adopts wherever possible the following RFU guidelines for the supervision of players within the Mini / Junior Section of the Club.

The RFU recommends a minimum ratio of adult to children of:


Under 7s                         1 adult per 6 children


Under 8s                         1 adult per 8 children


Under 9 – 14s                  1 adult per 12 children


Under 15 – 17s                1 adult per 15 children


Where possible, we will aim to delegate two (2) coaches to each different age group participating in training sessions or per match.

Coaches will have attended appropriate RFU Coaching Courses and will have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to comply with the RFU guidelines for people/volunteers who have regular contact with young people under the age of 18, within a rugby setting.
