Kit for Playing and Training

For Training

Before spending any money on kit, wait until your child has completed a trial period and see if they wish to continue playing. During the trial period we suggest the following clothing.

  • Boots - If your child has some football boots that's great otherwise wear some trainers.
  • Tops - A football or rugby shirt is ideal. If you have a track suit top, fleece or a jumper bring them to keep warm. Also in cold weather a woolly hat is a good idea.
  • Bottoms - Football or rugby shorts. In cold weather bring a track suit or jogging bottoms to keep warm.

Kit

Parents often ask what kit and protective clothing should be worn. Below is a guide to the kit requirements:

For Matches:

First impressions are important, especially in team games; this is a standard that we want to maintain. We like all teams to wear the same kit on match days:

  • Club shirt, which is supplied by the club on the day,
  • Black shorts, and
  • Club socks
  • Both socks and shorts are available to buy from the club shop.

Protective Gear:

This is an important area:

  • Shin pads, shoulder pads, scrum caps and grip gloves are optional.
  • Gum shields - When playing contact rugby wearing a gum shield are compulsory.
  • Boots: Football / Rugby boots fitted with kite marked rugby studs are recommended. However moulded studded football boots are acceptable for mini rugby. No bladed boots please.

Finally please bring a towel and a change of clean clothes for a hot shower. Please do not come into the clubhouse with boots or dirty kit.

Please make sure your child's kit has their name on it.

Please no jewellery and keep valuables to a minimum.
