Dursley Rugby Football Club
As incoming chair, I would like to wish you and your family a very warm welcome to Dursley RFC. With over 500 registered players from age 3 - U18, we are one of the largest M&Y clubs in Gloucestershire.
We operate an inclusive ethos in all age groups, working towards developing every player to their individual potential through the RFU age grade rugby regulations, TREDS (teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline & sportsmanship) & observing the ½ a game principle.
We welcome girls in our mini age groups up to and including U11. The club is working alongside the GRFU and other local clubs to build female participation in mini & youth rugby locally. Our ultimate aim is for a full girls youth section for our mini players to move into at U12/U13.
The fruits of the clubs ongoing fundraising efforts are evident in our modern changing room facilities, refurbishment of the old changing rooms into additional social space & upgraded kitchen facilities. All of this enhances your experience of being a member of this great club. Fundraising efforts continue and are now focused on the planning and installation of an all-weather training facility.
Dursley RFC implement codes of conduct for players, coaches, supporters and child protection. To this end all our coaches and volunteers are all DBS checked. Health and safety of our players is paramount, that is why our age groups have coaches, team managers and first aiders who hold the relevant coaching, safeguarding and first aid qualifications. We take great care to promote safe rugby at Dursley.
Dursley RFC continues to be a successful part of the local community due to the dedication of the individuals who give up their time and share their skills to keep it running in good order. In order to for this to continue we need more people to get involved. Your team manager and coaches will let you know what roles require filling throughout the season, and we will also put out information about this from time to time in our Club Newsletter. Many jobs are small and do not have a significant time commitment but sharing these amongst the wider Dursley RFC membership is really important. Thank you in anticipation of your enthusiasm & engagement with this.
We are looking forward to an exciting season, full of great rugby and hope that players and parents alike get a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure from the season and their association with the club.
