About the Youth Section
The Youth Section runs teams from U7s to U16s, and administer the Colts (U18′s).
The Youth Section committee meets at least once a month and finances itself from membership fees, grants and sponsorship. The Youth Section also benefits from a share of the Chiefs “Match Day Draw” which it runs for the Club at Chiefs home fixtures. The senior Club supports Youth Rugby with use of the Club’s wonderful facilities and amenities.
All teams have a team administrator and coaching staff. The Club is continually striving towards RFU qualifications for all its coaches. First aid training is given to ensure that there is always qualified personnel on hand. The youth section regularly invests in new equipment, which benefits all sections of Exeter Rugby Club.
Most teams play or train on Sunday mornings between 10am and 1pm. Training sessions for the younger teams, Under 7′s – Under 12′s, are run on Wednesday evenings from 6.00 p.m. to 7.15 p.m followed by a session for the U13-Under 15 teams until 9.00 p.m. The Under 16′s train alongside the Colts on Thursday evenings. Evenings sessions are held on the Club’s all weather, floodlit pitch.
Matches are played on both the all-weather pitch and grass mini pitch, whilst our home matches for Under 13 to under 16 teams are played a St Luke’s. After match meals are provided for all at Sandy Park.
The Colts normally play on Saturdays – see the fixture lists on this web site for times.
Players are provided with Chiefs shirts on match days and are provided with food after each fixture in the County or Fly-Be Suites at Sandy Park.
