Newton Abbot RFC All Whites Girls' Rugby
We are very proud at Newton Abbot to have founded the All Whites girls section in September 2012. We now have a great group of girls between 11 and 18 who play excellent rugby against the best sides in the South West and are gaining excellent experience before they progress to the Senior Women’s side.
We have U13s, U15s and U18s age groups. All the girls train together on a Wednesday evening on the Homers field at Rackerhayes from 6pm til around 7.15pm. The girls learn the basic skills of rugby, which we develop into match situations through playing lots of games. Girls’ matches take place on Sunday afternoons (as do most women’s fixtures).
Girls’ rugby is growing quickly and we have excellent coaches at Newton Abbot to help with progression in the game. Members of the All Whites Women’s squad coach and demonstrate at the girls’ training, and make the transition to Senior rugby easier. We use guest coaches where need extra in-depth knowledge.
If you’ve ever wanted to give rugby a go, played a bit at school, or played as a youngster with the boys and would like to carry on, then come and meet us on a Wednesday night. We are a friendly bunch and really keen to recruit new players. It doesn’t matter how much or little you’ve played before: we can give you the chance to play an exciting, fun game with real team spirit.
