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 between September and April (see timings below). 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.

Training Update & Return to Rugby Roadmap

Parliament has voted in favour of the Government’s national lockdown proposals aimed at curbing the increase in Covid-19 cases in England.

From Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December all community team sports will be suspended. This restriction applies to all club Age Grade and Adult rugby activities below Championship and Premier 15s.

Club rugby activity will return to Stage A on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap for the lockdown period. This means that no competitive or formal rugby activities can be undertaken until at least Wednesday 2 December.

The link below is to RFU Return to Rugby videos which are beneficial to understand the proposed future match formats,  but only when current restrictions are lifted.
