Bedford Junior Blues U16: (Year 11 from 1st Sep)
A very warm welcome to the Bedford Junior Blues U16 Homepage, The squad is lead by myself, Ash Haley. I am a qualified RFU Level 2 coach, I'm DBS cleared and first aid trained, I have been coaching rugby to boys and girls for around 15 years and have gained a lot of experience along the way. I'm joined by a fantastic team of highly motivated coaches that strive to provide the boys with the best experience whilst their a part of the BJB and we aim to provide quality rugby in a fun and structured environment
Rugby is and always will be a tough game so first and foremost it's really important the boys enjoy it. We promote the RFU core values throughout the club, are Teamwork - Enjoyment - Respect - Discipline - Sportsmanship, with these in mind we have set the squad and our coaching, playing and club sights for this season with the enjoyment of playing rugby, and teamwork for the boys.
We are very much looking forward to starting the new 2020/21 rugby season. 2019/20 was an outstanding season despite the abrupt end we still enjoyed a lot of success our highlight was winning the East Midlands plate on our final game of the season coming back from 31-7 to win 33-31...
All our players must be registered prior to training or playing in a fixture (to ensure all players are covered by the club's insurance). This season the club will allow 4 free weeks to allow your child to get a feel for the game and decide whether they want to continue. Your child will NOT be allowed to play in any fixtures until full membership fees have been paid. These free weeks are conditional that you register with your child's age group, to cover your child while they play.
New players are always welcome.
