The aim of our mini rugby training is to provide an inclusive and safe environment for boys and girls to develop a love of the game of rugby and of team sport. Our training sessions are designed to be fun and engaging, as well as competitive, with children of all abilities welcomed and supported. It is hugely rewarding as a coach to see children of initially limited confidence and ability, later grow into very capable players.
TCRC have a great relationship with the Hong Kong Scottish RFC premiership rugby club. They provide coaches every week to lead and train our children and help develop our parent coaches. From warm-up bear walks to fun passing drills and practice games, the kids learn to pay attention, have fun and develop their skills for the game.
TCRC encourage all parents to be involved with their children’s mini rugby experience. This can be through coaching, managing, refereeing, volunteering at tournaments &/or providing administrative support. Both you and your child will have an even more rewarding mini rugby experience as a result.
The HK Rugby Union (HKRFU) offer a variety of programs for anyone interested in coaching; from a complete novice to someone who has been coaching and wants to deepen their understanding of the game and progress through the different certifications available. TCRC will support our parent coach education by subsidising HKRFU training courses.
