Welcome to GHK Minis
We are an open club actively recruiting boys and girls in years Primary 3 to Primary 7 from all local schools. We meet on Sundays at Old Anniesland, where we are privileged to have the use of excellent playing facilities. We play regular home and away matches as well as taking part in tournaments.
The season starts at the end of August and runs through to the end of May. Early weeks are based on training before friendly matches. During December and January we train at Scotstoun on the 4G pitch. The latter half of the season is focused on numerous tournaments.
We have a philosophy of being all inclusive to all who want to learn and be involved in one of the best team sports that is the great game of rugby. We appreciate that all children develop mentally and physically at different rates and learn the numerous skills and develop their abilities at differing times. All boys and girls are given an equal opportunity wherever possible.
GHK Fixtures 2017-18
We play every Sunday: Training and home matches start at 10.00 am sharp. Away match times vary – the age group coach will confirm.
Our club playing kit is available online from PSL Team Sports.
PSL: Unit 12, Kelvin Gate, 58 Kelvin Avenue, Hillington G52 4GA
Full playing kit is required for matches but not at training. Age group coaches will assist in advising what is expected.
A gumshield is essential and players will not be allowed to take part without one.
The coaches are volunteers – generally they are parents of minis who are former rugby players themselves. We are fortunate the GHK senior team often provide current players to assist with coaching keeping training fresh with new ideas. If you are interested in coaching please let us know.
Coaches attend regular SRU courses and majority complete basic refereeing specifically for minis.
