Welcome to Dorking Youth Rugby section.
"WHERE WE DEVELOP OUR RUGBY STARS OF THE FUTURE"
Over 60% of Senior 1st XV playing in National Division 2 East (Level 5) came through Youth & Mini Section
International stars George Kruis, Elliot Daly & Kay Wilson started at Dorking as well as Jake Cooper-Wolley - England Saxons and numerous Premiership players.
Rugby is at the Big Field, Brockham, RH3 7LZ from 10am on Sundays.
The sessions vary in length, with u5's to u7's finishing at 11am, u8's to u10's till 1130 and all others till approx 12 / 1230.
We have been running youth rugby for over 35 years and have over 500 youth members.
We are always happy to welcome new members, so why not come down for a Free session.
It doesn't matter whether your child has played before.
We divide into 3 sections:
Kids First Rugby
Reception to Y6 Boys & Girls (U5-U11)
Kids First Rugby starts from reception school-age for boys and girls and its all about FUN and learning. TAG Rugby (non-contact) is played through to U8s with a graduated introduction to contact starting at U9s. The sessions take place from 10am on Sundays and vary in length, with u5's to u7's finishing at 11am, u8's to u10's till 1130 and u11's till 1145. All Kids welcome.

Y5 Upwards - U11,U13, U15 & U18 - Girls
Girls can continue with mixed rugby through to Y6 but some choice to move to girls rugby at Y5 & Y6 so we now run an U11s section.
Girls Rugby is the fastest growing sport in the UK, Dorking now runs U11s, U13s, U15s, U18s all girls sections. Each age group combines two school years so U11s can Y5 & Y6.
We play in a number of Values Festivals organised by Surrey Rugby, as well as their Waterfall Cup competitions. We also enter teams into other club run tournaments/festivals and arrange friendlies/joint training sessions.
There is a summer programme on Wednesday evenings for the U14's, U16's & U18s - fitness/strength & conditioning until 20 July and then pre-season training until the start of the new season.
During the rugby season:
- Girls train from 10 am to 12 noon on Sundays and from 6.15 - 7.30 pm on Wednesday evenings.
- The U14 and U16 girls can attend the YDP (Youth Development Programme) on Tuesday evenings.
