Welcome to GHK Junior Rugby
GHK RFC Junior Rugby Announcement for Season 2018-19
GHK RFC is delighted to announce the return of Midi rugby to their club structure. GHK will now provide rugby training and fixtures for S1, S2 & S3 year groups. The Midis will join our well established and vibrant Minis (P2/3 to P7) to form an expanded Junior rugby section for the start of season 2018-19. GHK aim to provide an opportunity for all players to learn new skills and develop their playing and understanding of the game. Coaching will continue to focus on providing a structured environment for players in all attributes of the game. Any parents/guardians who are interested in coaching or helping with the support activities are very welcome to join our existing group of volunteers. Our Coaches regularly attend SRU courses and are RugbyReady qualified with many progressing to UKCC certification. A key feature for the Junior rugby coaching environment will be the increased linkage with our senior players and coaches who will be invited to join sessions on a regular basis.
Planning for the new season is well underway and we are building a fixtures list that will include local and regional games on a home and away basis for all junior age groups mixed with a training schedule to encourage player development on and off the rugby pitch.
The new season will commence on Sunday 19th August with session times shown below. Initial sessions will be based on training before playing several friendly fixtures during the season.

GHK Midi Rugby Convenor
Crow Road Glasgow
We are an open club actively recruiting boys and girls in years Primary 3 to Primary 7 and boys from S1 to S3 from all local schools. At presnt we don not ycater for girls’ rugby at secondary school level. 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.
