Bridgwater & Albion Rugby Football Club by virtue of its history, status, style and renown, is one of the prized features of Bridgwater life.
They field three senior teams in various leagues and have an active Youth & Colts section encouraging children from 5 to 18 to get active in Rugby Football.
They also run a successful Ladies team
Tag Rugby is played by 5 to 8 year olds on a small pitch. It is non-contact so players wear tags attached with Velcro that need to be pulled off by another player instead of being tackled. When a tag is removed, the ball should be passed. This allows the young players to concentrate on improving their ball handling skills and team play whilst also retaining the excitement and agility of the full game. We generally play one or two matches every other week – with the actual game lasting no more than 10 minutes each way.
Midi Rugby is designed to be a progressive and controlled method of teaching basic Rugby skills so that by the age of 13, players are ready for the full 15-a-side game. Players are organized into four age groups – Under 9 to Under 12. In line with the latest English RFU continuum, the emphasis is on safety and tackling is not introduced until Under 9 level. Matches against other clubs take place roughly every other week, but the emphasis is very much on development of skills and enjoyment rather than purely results
At 13 years of age, players move up to junior rugby playing 15-a-side games on a full size pitch. Juniors play up to under 17’s when they can move into our Colts or Senior sides. The County run Junior sides from under 14’s on-wards and players can be put forward for training and selection for County age groups.
