Mini Rugby runs the following mixed age groups U5/U6, U7, U8, U9, U10,U11, U12, with an additional two girls only age groups of U9/10 & U11/U12. Girls can play in the mixed teams or girls only teams. Space is always limited and for the combined age group of U5/U6 preference will be to the older children before accepting the youngest of our Pirates.
We run training on a Sunday at various locations: U5-U9 on the Discovery College Pitch, U10 through U12 on our North Plaza pitch (behind the Community Centre). For U10’s and above there is usually an additional training session during the week. Occasionally we also train on the beach.
DB pirates participate in 6 Mini festivals each year competing against 19 other clubs and these are generally run on a Sunday. U12 Mixed and U12G compete for the Richard Hawkes Cup and Kim Lam Cup respectively and these are awarded at the final festival at Football Club in March. The culmination of playing season is the Hong Kong Sevens festival with our Minis playing before the international teams. Currently this tournament is open only to U7 to U12 players and as numbers grow this could be further restricted.
The season is then wrapped up with an Awards and Fun Day, with the players who have contributed most awarded for their efforts. Age group awards vary from Players Player, Coaches Player, Pirate of the Year, Most Improved and Rookie of the Year. All coaches and support staff are volunteers and we are always on the look out for more
