The U13 program is the first age grade level and signifys the end of "minis", as the girls stream "off" at 12. Because of the different levles of play, special attention is given to new players who may be joining experienced youngsters who have had 2/3 years with the game.
This crucial juncture before boys move into a more competition focussed league will be expertly guided by Coach Pete Robb and Coach John Humphries. Both men have a keen appreciation for the role of community sport in a young athlete’s life and cite the lessons they themselves learned on the Windsor Park field as one of the main reasons they now want to give back to the community. As positional play starts to become more relevant to this group Pete (backs) and John (forwards) assist players in mastering the core skills of their position(s) and their vital role in the structure of the team game.
Confidence in contact is also critical at this age level and much attention is given to this component. Games become much more structured however all of the rugby components are still not included. Teams play in Jamborees hosted by clubs and sometimes this necessitates travel up Island or to Vancouver as players become exposed to competition and some of the social aspects unique to rugby. At CW we believe we have given players a good base on which to move on to age grade rugby, after our Mini Rugby program.
