Mini

We currently have over 50 clubs with mini sections within Kent County.  This is a great achievement and we, at Kent County RFU, would like to thank all involved that make mini rugby an enjoyable and successful sport that so many children enjoy.

Many mini rugby players go on to become youth and senior players in their own clubs or even progress further afield. The smiles on the children’s faces show the enjoyment they have for the sport that they play.  KCRFU encourages the acceptance of Rugby Union values at every level. Minis rugby is widely recognised as the building blocks of the 15-a-side game and without these, the quality we see in our youth, senior and representative games would not be realised.

The Kent Mini Committee promotes the efficient and effective development of mini rugby through the organisation of appropriate, formally approved and organised county events from U7 to U11 age levels. They liaise with clubs and disseminate relevant RFU information and guidance to key personnel in club mini sections.


If your club wishes to run a youth rugby festival or tournament you must first seek permission from KCRFU Mini Chairperson at least three months prior to the festival date.  You can access our online application form below.  You will need to add attachments to the online form to include your event rules and format and your festival risk assessment for the day. Once a Club’s Mini Festival is approved it will appear on the Kent Website in our Diary events.

Please contact our Kent County RFU Mini Chair or Youth Chair for more specific help.
