Welcome to the Mini Section at Ballymena RFC
We train once a week at the club on a Saturday morning starting at 9:15am for around 90 minutes (sometimes less in the cold.)
We have a large number of coaches and certified first aiders for our set up but we actively encourage parents to get involved, and support those who want to take qualifications, so there are enough for all the players to have a great time.

All children must wear a mouth guard for training and matches. The IRFU has banned players from wearing boots with metal blade type studs, zipped clothing and hooded tops during training or matches as these increase the risk of injury. Parents are asked to ensure that children have the proper boots and wear appropriate clothing. You may also wish to consider a headguard for your child, although care must be taken to ensure it fits properly.
Aims for the Season
We want to see an improvement in the core skills of every player and to create a lasting memory of the fun of mini rugby.
