Due to the current crisis it is with regret that we cannot accept new players under the GIVE RUGBY A TRY scheme. New players are welcome subject to age group quotas in line with Covid Risk Assessment.
All new players will need to allow approx. 1 week for the registration process to be completed. If you require more information please contact the Team Manager of the age group you will be joining.
Bedford Junior Blues U13: (Year 8 from 1st Sep 2021)
The Junior Blues Under 13s provide quality rugby in an enjoyable and structured environment supported by a team of RFU qualified volunteers. In keeping with all Bedfordshire and East Midlands rugby clubs, we play under the RFU's 'Age Grade Rugby' - a deliberately child-centric approach to the game. Through this phased approach to learning, we introduce children to the rugby skills that they will then use for the rest of their playing days (and the social skills and friendships that will help them throughout life).
We are passionate about what we do, but we are not about winning matches at all costs. The core values of rugby – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Sportsmanship – are at the heart of what we do and our goal is to allow all our players to experience the fellowship, fun and excitement that rugby offers.
All our coaches are also age group parents who are highly qualified and passionate about developing the group to be the best they can, whilst ensuring it is always fun and enjoyable.
We train at Bedford Athletic RFU's ground on Wentworth Drive from 10 am to 11:30 am on a Sunday morning and 6pm - 7.30 pm on Thursday evenings. Please arrive from 15 minutes prior to start time to ensure a prompt start.
