    Hello I am 16 years old and I am thinking about playing again… I have 4 years experience and rugby is just my favorite sport

    • admin says:

      Hello Kayla! At the moment, I believe our club would be able to accommodate a player aged 16+! We would love to see you over the Winter season during Touch Rugby if you can make it! We will be posting details soon on our Facebook event page.

    I am 42, a woman, with minimal rugby experience. Thinking of joining, is there an age limit?


    • admin says:

      There is no upper age limit. If you can play, you can play! I’d love to see you at our indoor training session in early march. Here’s the facebook event:

      And don’t worry about rugby experience. Myself, along with a majority of players on our team, joined without ever having played or even seen rugby before. We can teach any new player the fundamentals and the skills necessary. Just come out with us and have fun!

    Hi there.
    I’m interested in joining the team and what I was wondering is if the days listed above for the indoor turf practices are for 2016?

    • admin says:

      Sorry Alex, but no. I will update the page, but we don’t have any solid dates for indoor practice quite yet. The second we do, I’ll post an event on our Facebook page and update this one.

    Hi, i would be intrusted in joining however how old would you have to be to start because i am only a tall 15 year old?! Thanks.

    • admin says:

      I’ve looked into it, and sadly; our club at the moment has not made the commitment to include players under the age of 18. We will look into lowering the age requirement to 16, but for legal reasons, we cannot go lower than that.

      We do hope that your interest in our club remains and perhaps next year, we can see you on the pitch with the Wolves!

  5. Thomas says:

    Is any experience required

  6. Brandon says:

    Is there a team for 13 year old

  7. April says:

    What equipment is required?

    • admin says:

      The only equipment you will need are rugby cleats, training clothes (Regular gym clothing is fine) and a mouth guard. Rugby is a very equipment light game.

  8. Oskar says:

    What is the age limit?

    • admin says:

      Hi Oskar. We don’t have an age limit! We do require parental consent for anyone under the age of 18. but there is no upper bound. If you’re able to play, you can play!
