Welcome to Blackheath U9s.
We are an “Open” Club and as such will happily accept all who wish to come along and give rugby a try.
Our age group currently consists of almost fifty players, some of whom are relatively new to the sport and some of whom have been playing rugby for up to three years.
We currently have four teams and aim to give every player an opportunity to play in as many games and festivals as possible depending upon their ability.
Our players are supported by around 8 coaches some of whom are UKCC Level 1 qualified. All coaches have current DBS Enhanced Certificates and we have numerous first aiders across our group.
We train on a Sunday morning from 10am until 12pm at our Well Hall training ground and participate in fixtures and festivals throughout the season both at our home ground and all over Kent, London and the Home Counties including competitions arranged by Saracens at their home ground, Allianz Park.
Our objective as a group is for all participants (parents, coaches and players) to thoroughly enjoy the experience of being involved in rugby at Blackheath FC while we collectively develop the children’s skills to the maximum of their ability. At the heart of everything we do is trying to instil the core values of rugby, namely Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.
