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.


Gloucestershire RFU is promoting the following courses; please follow the links to find out more.
