Our “Tigers” squad has over 180 boys and girls, aged 5 (year 1) to 17/18 years of age. Each team has its own dedicated team of coaches, who will follow them through their rugby journey. This approach leads to strong leadership and great teamwork between players and coaches. All our coaches are DBS checked and regularly take part in Gloucestershire RFU and England RFU training courses to further develop their knowledge and skills.
Tewkesbury RFC is an accredited England RFU and Gloucestershire RFU club and operates within the RFU’s age-grade rugby programme, which is based on the principles of player-centered, development driven, and competition supported. The wants and needs of our young players are our priority, and we will put their enjoyment above all else.
Boys and girls can play mixed rugby from 5 (year 1) and will continue up to and including U11 (year 6). From U12 boys (Year 7) and girls will follow their own developmental path. The RFU defines a child’s age group by the child’s age at midnight on 1 September.
Tewkesbury Tigers are sponsored by BPS Building & Plumbing Supplies
