Fun in the mud!
Welcome to Barnet & Elizabethans RFC U12's team page.
U12 is for Boys & Girls who are 11 years old at the beginning of September, i.e. in the first year of secondary school or year 7 of prep school.
We've got a squad of 27+/- players who regularly turn up to play. We offer structured rugby skills training, as well as fixtures against other teams in Hertfordshire, Essex, Middlesex & Bedfordshire (minis' league). In addition, we also enter County and National competitions generally culminating with an end of season tour to some far off, exotic land!
We cater for children of all abilities - whether they have been playing to a high standard with lots of ability and experience, right the way through to those who have never picked up a rugby ball before. Our ethos is Fun, Fun, Fun - there's plenty of time for them to develop into the next International, rugby superstar of the future!
Training & Playing
We usually train and play every Sunday morning. All 'home games' are played at our ground at the bottom of Byng Road and training starts at 9.45am. When we have away fixtures, we advise parents in advance (most games are reasonably local), communicating through this Pitchero website. You can see all our fixtures under 'Fixtures & results'. We usually play a match against the opposition and then look to run some mixed training, to ensure skills are developing throughout the playing season.
We also offer training on Wednesday evenings, starting at 5.30pm. This is just for one hour as we know the children have homework. Before Christmas, Wednesday training is at Byng Road and at Allianz Park (on their 4G pitch which is superb) after Christmas.
Please ensure your child has some rugby boots and a mouth guard.
If you would like your child to play fun rugby with a great bunch of players (and coaches!), you are very welcome to join us. You can just turn up on Sunday morning (or Wednesday evening) and give it a go. There is absolutely no pressure. They can join in for the first few weeks (at the start or at any time during the season) to see if they like it.
For the U12's this season, the New Rules of Play have been published and some changes from last years rules have been added, so it's a great time for players to join and develop their new found skills
If you have any questions at all, or would like to give us advance notice that you are coming, please contact Martin, Nigel or Scott (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We'd be delighted to see you at the club.
