Welcome to the Under 13 Saints
Junior Saints u13 are a squad of 11 at the moment with a mix of Year 7s and 8s, we train on Wednesday evenings and train or play matches on Sunday afternoons.
So far this season, we have played a few friendly matches with local clubs and have won the majority of these but at this age group, the focus is on developing skills and a love of rugby.
We are very keen to recruit new players, if you or your daughter is interested, please contact Craig Ihlenfeldt or just come down to one of our sessions.
About OA’s Junior Saints
Our Junior Saints programme isn’t just about Rugby, it’s about life lessons and allowing our girls to develop, within our Junior Saints Philosophy and Core Values;
Giving them the Self-Confidence to deal with situations on and off the field, while stretching their abilities to achieve their highest level, being Honourable, Accountable and to have Self-Worth,
Remembering that;” It’s first about the player next to “me” and “knowing that I can be Counted on”
“Coaching and Preparing them to be the best that they can be, and the result will take care of itself and amongst all have fun.”
At OA’s Junior Saints girls rugby, we cover 4 age groups, based on age as at 01/09/2019:
Under 11 (ages 9 & 10), Under 13 (ages 11 &12), Under 15 (ages 13 & 14) and Under 18 (ages 15-17)
The numbers in the girls and women’s game is growing at a phenomenal rate, The Junior Saints have again seen very good growth, from 14 players (8x U15 & 6x U18’s) in 2012 to 69 players across (U11- U18’s) last season; and with this in mind,
we would very much like to encourage your girls to come and be part of this and try club rugby at the most successful club in Hertfordshire.
