Welcome to Bedford Junior Blues U8s: (Year 3 from 1st Sep)

We aim to provide quality rugby in a fun and structured environment supported by a team of RFU qualified volunteers. New players are always warmly welcome to come and join us.
We train down at Bedford Athletic RFC's ground at Wentworth Drive on a Sunday morning and offer trial lessons during September, so you can give rugby a go before fully joining.

The U8s provide quality rugby in an enjoyable and structured environment supported by a team of RFU qualified volunteers. In keeping with all Bedfordshire rugby clubs, we play under the RFU's 'Age Grade Rugby' - a deliberately child-centric approach to the game. Through this we introduce children to rugby though a phased approach to learning the skills they will then use for the rest of their playing days (and the social skills and friendships that will help them throughout life).

We are passionate about what we do, but what we are not about is winning matches at all costs. The core values of rugby – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Sportsmanship – are at the heart of what we do and our goal is to allow all our players to experience the fellowship, fun and excitement that rugby offers.
