Bude RFC very proud of our Age Grade rugby section providing the opportunity for young people from the local community and surrounding areas to participate in regular physical activity and to learn the core values of rugby within a safe, positive and enjoyable environment.

We have an extensive, well qualified and enthusiastic team of coaches, assistants and parent volunteers who by following the RFU format at various ages ensure that young players play the right rugby at the right time. These formats are supported by the regulations of the Age Grade game and have been developed by scientific research and studies on player development in sport.

The principle behind the Rules of Play is to provide a playing format with building blocks to the 15-a-side game that allows players time to get to grips with the basics of running and catching the ball before contact and specialism is gradually introduced – which positively impacts on player safety.
