Review of 2014 - 15 Season - The Under 8's

This season the RFU introduced new rules for the under 8s which involved an increase in the team size from 4 to 6 a side and playing on larger pitches. The concept was to give each player more playing time with the ball and make the game simple with very few rules. Well it seemed to work the squad scored plenty of tries and most weeks we fielded 2 teams the Panthers and Pumas.

After a slow start to the season the squad started to gain confidence as they approached the Christmas break. After Christmas the momentum was still there and the victories against most clubs was the squads reward. The highlight of the season was the Huddersfield festival the squad winning the trophy.

Under 8's playing record

Review of 2013 - 14 Season - The Under 7's

This season the RFU introduced new rules for the under 7s which involved reducing the team size from 7 to 4 a side and playing on smaller pitches. The concept was to give each player more playing time with the ball and make the game simple with very few rules. Well it seemed to work the squad scored over 600 tries and on each week we fielded 2 teams the Maroons and Whites and occasionaly a 3rd team the Blacks when we had sufficient playwers.

The new rules of play (NROP) however requires more parent involvement due to running 2 games at a time. So we do need regular help from parents to organise the players. The squad had a great season building on the previous season in the micros where learning basic ball handling skills paid off this season as they played their first competitive games. The highlight of the season was the Brodleians festival with the Msroons winning the cup and the Whites winning the plate.

Under 7's playing record
P 69, Won 27, Lost 22, D 20, F 610, A 595
Leading try scorer was Edward Amer 83 tries, followed by Jimbob Brooks 82 tries and Harvey Ambler 80 tries

The Under 7's Awards
Archie Lapsley won the most improved player award.
Cameron Barnes won the coaches award.
Harvey Ambler won the player of the year trophy.

Review of 2012 - 13 Season - The Under 5/6's (The Micros)

The under 6's (The micros) had a very successful and enjoyable season. With new players arriving at the club throughout the year the squad has grown to a very healthy 30 players.

This season Matthew Amer, Alan Powell, Toby Wood and Steve Moore coached the squad. With parents also helping the coaches we were able to split the squad into 2 groups, the under 5's and under 6.

The micros have trained every week and at the end of the season we invited Huddersfield YMCA micros to come down and join in a training session and play tag rugby however the wet weather forced the event to be cancelled. The basis of next seasons under 7 squad is now in place with 2 parents willing to coach the squad. We will look for another 2 parents to help the coaches as we feel this squad needs 4 coaches to develop the players. At the end of the season we held the micros presentation day and the following players won awards

The Micros Awards
Freddie Walters won the under 5's most improved player award.
Joshua Cooke won the under 5's player of the year trophy.
Zac Southwell won the under 6's most improved player award.
Edward Amer won the under 6's player of the year trophy.
Isaac Warrender won the Outstanding Achievement award.
