The Basingstoke RFC U17’s have a large family of registered players (Year 12). However, we are always looking for new players, from those that have played before to complete beginners to join the squad and share in the fun, camaraderie, and spirit of rugby which is in our club’s DNA.
We run a programme of league and friendly fixtures from September to April. We also train on Thursday evenings 18.45pm to 20.30pm at Basingstoke RFC, Down Grange, Basingstoke. On Sundays our matches will take place in the afternoons either at Home or Away at various clubs throughout the season.
We believe that the Basingstoke RFC U17’s are able to offer players, at all standards, a great opportunity to learn and develop their rugby; to play competitive rugby at a level that is suitable for their ability; and to continue to be challenged as their experience and ability develops.
Coaching & Player Development
The U17’s Team are supported by qualified coaches. All coaches are involved in a continuous programme of training and development, supported by Basingstoke RFC and the RFU.
We focus on developing player’s core skills, to enable them to play effectively at several positions. This helps to develop positional skills and to ensure that we retain a strong squad ethos.
You will receive regular feedback and development from our coaching team on your progress. We pride ourselves on delivering fully inclusive sessions based on our and the RFU’s core values to provide ALL players a fun, developing and challenging experience.
Social Activities & Tour
We always aim to organise a number of social events each year for players, outside of rugby training and matches. We also arrange away tours where players get a taste of the true spirit of rugby.
Get in Touch
Please give Basingstoke RFC U17’s a try. We are committed to developing the highest possible rugby skills and techniques and whilst winning is the aim, playing your best, trying hard and have fun are of equal importance.
