U11 Mixed - Partial-Contact

Welcome to Calgary Hornets Rugby! Our U11 team is a mixed boy/girl team dedicated to providing a safe and fun environment for your child to learn and develop their rugby skills. Our experienced coaches are passionate about rugby and are committed to helping your child improve their skills while emphasizing the importance of teamwork, respect, and sportsmanship.

Introduction to Contact

At the U11 level, your child will be introduced to contact rugby. Our coaches are experienced in teaching the proper techniques for tackling, rucking, and mauling while ensuring that safety is always the top priority. We understand that contact can be intimidating for some children, and our coaches take the time to build trust and confidence with each player.

Partial-Contact Games

As your child learns the fundamentals of contact rugby, we introduce partial-contact games where they can apply their new skills in a game setting. Partial-contact games allow children to develop their contact skills while still ensuring their safety. Our coaches provide guidance and support to ensure that every player feels confident and comfortable on the field.

Experienced Coaches

Our U11 team is coached by experienced and qualified coaches who have a passion for teaching rugby to young children. Our coaches understand that every child develops at their own pace, and they tailor their training sessions to challenge and improve each player’s skills. We also believe that having fun is an essential part of the learning process, and our coaches ensure that every training session is engaging and enjoyable.

Teamwork and Sportsmanship

At Calgary Hornets Rugby, we believe that rugby is more than just a sport; it is a way of life. We emphasize the values of teamwork, respect, and sportsmanship on and off the field. We believe that these values are essential for your child’s personal and social development and will stay with them long after their rugby days are over.

Parental Involvement

As parents, we encourage you to get involved in your child’s rugby experience. We welcome your support at training sessions and matches, and we believe that your involvement can have a positive impact on your child’s development. We also encourage you to help your child practice their rugby skills at home, as this can help reinforce what they learn during training.
