Old Albanian Under 13s are a junior rugby team for Year 8 children. Some of our players are now in their 8th season of playing rugby having played tag rugby from the age of 5 and contact rugby last season. Other players are just discovering the joys of rugby… Whatever the skill and experience of a player, everyone is welcome.
With an enthusiastic team of coaches, many with RFU Level 1 Coaching accreditation, we offer child centred approach to everything that we do, with safety and fun at the core, and we encourage the players to play a positive form of the game, in line with the principles of RFUs New Rules of Play.

Goals and objectives
While we have enjoyed success, including at County and National level, our principal purpose remains to encourage as many boys and girls as possible to play and love the game of rugby. Our goals and objectives for this season are that:
- Safety remains our number 1 priority
- The needs of our players are at the centre of all decisions we make
- We continue to develop skills learned previously with the new skills required in Under 11 rugby in a safe, consistent and fun manner
- All players to have an equal opportunity to play, to improve and to shine.
