Jed-Forest Mini Rugby is open to both boys and girls from Primary one to seven. We train at Riverside Park from 10am until 11am on Sunday mornings. The season runs from August until November where we take a break until February. The season then runs into the middle of May and finishes for summer. We play against other clubs from the Borders in friendly matches and tournaments. Our own tournament occurs every year in September.
Every two years our Primary sixes and sevens go on a tour which is greatly enjoyed by everybody! This comprises of a tour around Murrayfield where the children are allowed to see the pitch and the changing rooms. After that they stay at Gulabin Lodge at Glenshee and take part in an adventure day where they get to participate in activities such as archery, shooting and rope activities. The trip is concluded with a rugby match against Kinross.
Rugby is a terrific sport. It is fun as well as a great way to make friends, learn respect and other values like team bonding. Please come down and give it a try. Everybody is welcome!
