A significant number of clubs from throughout Northern Ireland participated in a morning of intensive matches. The Ballymena side won all matches apart from their final match, where they drew 3-3 against Bangor.

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.
All our coaches are volunteers and we are always on the look out for coaches/helpers on a Sat morning; no previous experience is required. If you are interested in helping, please speak to your childs coach on a Saturday morning. The coaches follow the IRFU code of ethics and have completed all relevant police checks.

At the end of training the children are given juice; after a match, hot dogs are provided. These require volunteers to help to distribute. Each age group will take this in turn throughout the season. Please try to be available for one Saturday morning during the season, between 10:30 and 11:15 to help.
