Youth Rugby Begins!

Dear Players & Parents,

The new rugby season is upon us, and the Millwall Lions youth section
are looking forward to getting onto the pictch, starting this Sunday!


Thanks to all those players and parents who turned up to our first
ever registration day on Sunday. I'm sure you'll agree it was a great
success. Without a ball being kicked or a tackle being made, we
already have over 50 members signed up for the new season.

If you weren't able to attend on registration day, all paid up members
received a special "goodie" bag, full of posters, stickers and other
cool "members only" stuff.

We still have *some* bags left....so, if you want to get your hands on
one, be sure to attend training this wednesday and come armed with
your �10 annual membership fee (�15 for Colts).

For information about training, visit here:



Our brand new Colts (u19s) have their first match of the season this
Sunday, up the road at Barking RFC. I'm sure there will be no love
lost between these two teams. If you're in the area drop on down to
Barking RFC and show your support:

Are you interested in getting into coaching but don't know where to

We are looking for coaches for our Mini's section (ages 7-9) to help
them grasp the basics of touch rugby before they graduate onto to
contact rugby.

If you are interested and are available on Wednesdays from 6pm and
Sunday mornings from 10am, please email youth@millwallrugby.com

The club will send you on a touch rugby coaching course and the IRB
'Rugby Ready' qualification to help get your started.


The Head Coaches of our three youth teams, U12s, U15s and Colts are
currently seeking assistant coaches to help them shape their teams for
the new season.

If you are interested and are available on Wednesdays from 6pm and
Sunday mornings from 10am, please email youth@millwallrugby.com

After you've completed a few sessions with the team, the club will
send you on a RFU Level 1 coaching course to help you become a
qualified coach.


Now that youth training and matches will be happening every Sunday
morning, I'm looking for parents and volunteers to help run the
'Canteen' (the kitchen in the clubhouse) to serve coffee/tea, as well
as potentially other snacks and food.

The coaches and team managers at Millwall Lions, parents themselves
already put in loads of hours for the club so I don't expect them to
do this.

If you have some time to spare on a Sunday morning and are keen to
help the club offer this new service and bring in some much needed
income, please email youth@millwallrugby.com

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Let's go to work!
