Here come the girls!!

Here come the girls!!

We are hugely proud at Grasshoppers of our Girls Section. It has become the fastest growing section within the Club.

We are one of the focus clubs within the RFU Women and Girls Growth strategy combining with Wasps FC, Teddington RFC and Hammersmith & Fulham RFC to form the Middlesex Local Rugby Partnership.

Girls can start playing rugby in the Mini section from U7 up until U11.

At U13 the girls then move into the Girls section where they develop their skills in transition from TAG to Contact.

We also have U15 and U18 girls playing contact rugby.

Our objective is that every girl who joins Grasshoppers will have an enjoyable experience playing the game of rugby in a safe and secure environment. For those that want to progress, we encourage the player pathway into County and Divisional Rugby.

Training is held on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm to 8pm and Sunday mornings from 12 noon to 2pm.

If you would like to come down and get involved please call Leroy Arbouine via or call 07703 316 321.

All our coaches, managers and volunteers are CRB checked and our coaches have a minimum Rugby Ready/Level 1 coaching qualification as well as having referee experience. As part of our commitment to our young players, free physiotherapy is offered on Sunday mornings. The Club adheres to the RFU rules on Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults. All members of the Girls section abide by the Club's Code of Conduct.

Ladies Rugby

Although Grasshoppers don�t run a full 15-aside contact senior side, we do encourage senior players and our mums to give rugby a go. Tag and Touch Rugby are both offered to encourage Ladies to get involved with the sport. For senior players who want to continue into the 15-aside contact game, we have strong links with Wasps Ladies, Harlequin Ladies and Teddington Ladies.

Local Rugby Partnership (LRP)

Grasshoppers are part of the RFU Local Rugby Partnership programme and are committed to the following charter:

"The clubs of the Middlesex Local Rugby Partnership (Grasshoppers, Hammersmith and Fulham, Teddington Ladies and Wasps Ladies) agree to work together in partnership to develop rugby union for women and girls between 2014 and 2017. We will lead the way, share good practice and provide new and different opportunities for women and girls to take part in rugby union whether as a player, volunteer, coach or referee. We are committed to growing the game together, so that more people can play more locally and more often. We will work with the RFU and our local communities around us to achieve this."

We�d like to thank Sport England Inspired Facilities Fund for their funding and support with our new changing facilities.
