Under 12

At Sale U12 we run a small, but enthusiastic and developing squad. This ensures ALL get maximum playing time without the need for “A and B” teams. So if your child has tried rugby for the first time at secondary school and wants to play on a Sunday as well, or is stuck on the side-lines at clubs with bigger squads, why not get in touch and secure some regular rugby here at Sale?

Since the start of the season we have nearly doubled our squad size with many new players playing rugby for the first time. Several of the more experienced players have been in the club since they were 7 years old, and played tag rugby in 6 a side games where they were not allowed to “go to ground” to score a try…

Rugby is a great sport that facilitates players of all ages, shapes and sizes to truly learn the benefits of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship. At Under 12 they play five in a contested but non pushing scrum, they run, pass, tackle, kick, ruck, maul and hand off but do not have lineouts. There is a lot to learn and do.

The coaching team of five is committed to developing each player to achieve their personal best, we have three fully qualified level 1 coaches, a qualified referee and all coaches have completed the DBS registration.

It’s not all about rugby though: We have been on tours to the Lakes, Scarborough and North Wales. We hold a players social dinner each year, and often head to the club days at Heywood Road to watch the Sale FC first team. A highlight of the year is the end of year awards and family fun day at Heywood Road.

The coaches warmly welcome you to get in touch and bring your player down to join us for a training session at Carrington.

Please contact Nick Baker either by text or email for more information.

Social Events

Here is a write up from our recent under 12’s social event

Our U12 team enjoyed a social evening at Vao, Sale Waterside last night.

In between courses the coaches spoke to each player individually to give them a personal rugby objective for the rest of the season. They have been given a small laminated card to stick inside their gum shield box.

They of course had some typical rugby fun with the Jalepeno Challenge, right thumb down, left hand drinking, and the grand finale After Eight Challenge all overseen by a Judge. The lads were well behaved, and we hope the evening has helped them bind together as a squad.

If you know of any Year 7 lads who have tried rugby for the first time at school, or are stuck on the sidelines at another club and want to join a developing squad with plenty of game time please contact Nick Baker on 07944 531500
