Children’s Rugby

Mini and Junior Rugby

At Sale FC we divide our Mini and Junior Rugby division into two distinct groups based on school year age:

Mini’s run from Under 6’s (Year 1) to Under 11’s (Year 6).

When they go to Secondary school the children move into the Junior’s section of the club which has teams from Under 12’s (Year 7) to Under 16’s (Year 11).

If you are interested in joining, you can find individual team contact details on the team page or for any general questions see the contact details below.


Our Minis and Juniors section isn’t just about rugby. We have a healthy social life for both children and their parents!  As well as games there are regular social events at Carrington and Heywood Road, including pre-match hospitality.  Your membership gives you entry to first team home games as well as a discount at the bar!

Mini and Junior team members are encouraged to join a Guard of Honour and wave the teams out onto the pitch.  They can also be Ball Boys and Girls during the game.



More Information


As a general rule our Minis and Juniors all train and play home matches at Carrington on a Sunday Morning. This normally starts at 10am (but please enquire about KO times which might be later).  The Training/Match Schedule can be found on each of the team’s pages.

Junior teams also have training sessions on a Thursday evening.  See the team page for confirmation of this and times.

After training/matches we love to see all teams to go to the club house for some food and a wind down.  The Cafe also serves hot drinks and snacks to parents and supporters.
