Dursley Rugby Football Club
Registered as a Community Amateur Sports Club CASC since 2004
I would like to thank our members and volunteers for their resilience, support and commitment to the club throughout the fragmented season of 2020/2021. We approach the 2021/2022 season with optimism and an appetite for rugby in all its forms!
Dursley RFC extends a warm welcome to you & your family. With around 350 registered players from age 3 - U18, we have one of the largest M&Y sections 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 and have a developing girls youth section. The club is working alongside the GRFU and other local clubs to build participation in the girls game.
The fruits of the clubs ongoing fundraising efforts are evident in our modern changing room facilities, refurbishment of the clubhouse and professionally run bar and kitchen services.
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 welcome returning and new players at any time but this year we are particularly promoting Pitch Up For Rugby on 5th & 12th September 2021 for anyone new to the game.
Please get in touch with the relevant age group contacts to find out more and for specific information regarding the operation of the club in line with current covid guidance>> https://www.dursleyrfc.co.uk/contact.
