Youth Section

Bridgwater and Albion Rugby Union Football Club Youth Section is an open club for anyone aged 5 to 18 wishing to play Rugby Union in the Bridgwater area.

Originally founded in 1875, the club has continued to grow and now runs Mini, Junior and Girl teams in addition to Senior sides.

The Mini section caters for boys and girls from the age of 5-12 who learn a scaled-down version of the game. Players from 13 years up play Junior rugby in boy or girl teams. We generally play or train on a Sunday morning from 10am to 12noon between September and April. You are welcome to come down to the club on a Sunday, see how we operate, meet the Coaches and Team Managers. Alternatively make enquiries in advance directly to the team manager for your child’s age group.
