The enjoyment, safety and education of children in rugby union is vital to the sustainability of the game. 

Finding the most appropriate introduction for young players into rugby union is the most important issue, and the RFU is committed to helping this happen.

Sampling rugby in a safe environment is the first step so this section of the site can help you find out more about rugby in schools, help you discover your nearest club with a dedicated mini and youth structure, and allow you to see the RFU’s commitment to safeguarding children.

As a young player’s interest develops there is information on learning the rules and values of rugby and how to join the RFU’s Junior Supporters Club.
