MINI AND YOUTH rugby is actively promoted at Wimborne and we celebrated 25 years of M&Y rugby at the Club seven years ago (2003/2004). Excellent coaching standards and management attracts in excess of 300 junior players to the Club and it is arguably a role model for the Dorset and Wilts region. Aims and objectives focus on encouraging boys and girls of all ages and abilities to participate in a team game for the fun and enjoyment of the game itself. Rugby is a game where values are as important as playing. The values of sportsmanship and fair play are taught as an endemic part of the game, alongside playing skills.
If you, or your child, would like to find out what it's all about, then contact any of the Officers in the Mini and Youth section, or turn up at the Clubhouse on a Sunday morning between 9:30am and midday. You will be made most welcome.
