Dudley Kingswinford Rugby Football Club

Youth Section

Welcome to
DKRFC Youth Section

Welcome to a another season of youth rugby at Dudley Kingswinford Rugby Football Club, where we are rightly proud of the achievements and the excellent attitude of our young players.

The club aims to ensure that players, coaches, parents, spectators and volunteers uphold the Core Values of rugby union, Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship. These values will stand our young people in good stead both on and off the rugby pitch and are reflected in the RFU’s Code of Rugby. Dudley Kingswinford RFC supports its aims that we:

  • Play to win - but not at all cost
  • Win with dignity, lose with grace
  • Observe the Laws and regulations of the game
  • Respect opponents, referees and participants
  • Reject cheating, racism, violence and drugs
  • Value volunteers and paid officials alike
  • Enjoy the game

We run mixed gender teams from Under 6 to Under 11, Boys from Under 12 to Under 17 and Girls Under 12 to Under 18
