Mission Statement


To help Rugby Clubs, Schools and Colleges within the Gloucestershire CB, to provide the opportunity to play Rugby in a sustainable and friendly environment to every child who wants it.

Gloucestershire RFU supports an all-inclusive policy in rugby and encourages children of ALL abilities and from ALL demographics to come and try this great game.

As Mini & Youth Sector Head for Gloucestershire RFU, it is my great privilege and passion to promote a good and friendly atmosphere when visiting clubs within the county.  I am always available to give advice or assistance on any issues that you may have whether you are an individual or a club.

We would ask all members of the rugby family (players, referees, coaches, supporters, and parents) to RESPECT each other before, during and after each game or training session.
