Welcome to Dorking Youth Rugby section.


Over 60% of Senior 1st XV playing in National Division 2 East (Level 5) came through Youth & Mini Section

International stars George Kruis, Elliot Daly & Kay Wilson started at Dorking as well as Jake Cooper-Wolley - England Saxons and numerous Premiership players.

The sessions vary in length, with u5's to u7's finishing at 11am, u8's to u10's till 1130 and all others till approx 12 / 1230.

We have been running youth rugby for over 35 years and have over 500 youth members.

We are always happy to welcome new members, so why not come down for a Free session.

It doesn't matter whether your child has played before.

We divide into 3 sections:

Kids First Rugby

Kids First Rugby starts from reception school-age for boys and girls and its all about FUN and learning.

Girls Rugby

Y5 Upwards - U11,U13, U15 & U18 - Girls

Girls can continue with mixed rugby through to Y6 but some choice to move to girls rugby at Y5 & Y6 so we now run an U11s section.

Girls Rugby is the fastest growing sport in the UK, Dorking now runs  U11s, U13s, U15s, U18s all girls sections.  Each age group combines two school years so U11s can Y5 & Y6.

We play in a number of Values Festivals organised by Surrey Rugby, as well as their Waterfall Cup competitions. We also enter teams into other club run tournaments/festivals and arrange friendlies/joint training sessions.
