Welcome to Terenure RFC Community Club

Terenure mini and youth rugby is now 23 years old. During this time Terenure have lifted the club to new heights leading the way in this innovative area of club rugby.

Mini rugby opens the sport up to local non rugby playing National community schools and allows this group of players’ easy access to first class coaching and match experience.

Terenure RFC coaches are Garda Vetted; they are also trained and registered by Leinster rugby and continuously attend rugby coaching workshops. Terenure RFC is committed to making sure all players are developed on equal terms and in a fun but informative, responsible and caring environment. Terenure RFC is a community mini rugby academy and we are open to any player from 4 years of age who wishes to play rugby as their main or extra sport.

We develop players to a very high standard which eases their transition into any rugby playing school in first year.

With regard to Secondary Schools which don’t play rugby all of these players can remain playing at Terenure RFC in our youth system and they can continue right through to our junior and senior club teams.

Players who attend rugby playing schools are welcome to join or continue here at youth rugby to enjoy valuable additional high level experienced coaching to enhance their game at an enjoyable pace and in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere.

We regularly supply quality players to St Colmcille’s Knocklyon, Templeogue College, St Marys College, High school Rathgar, Terenure College and Gonzaga to name but a few.

Leinster schools admire and regularly acknowledge the contribution mini and youth rugby now makes to their existing quality player base enhancing their chances of success at competition level.

Leinster Senior Schools now recognise players joining in first year are as advanced as the players already in their schools system and thanks to club mini rugby the schools can continue their player development programmes and not get held back trying to integrate large numbers of novice players into their existing rugby teams.

The need for all schools and rugby clubs to work alongside each other is now greater than ever, first of all in the interest of the players and secondly to ensure players remain in the game through youth rugby and are encouraged by schools to return into the rugby club system after graduation.

Come down on Sunday morning and sample our community Sunday morning rugby. Tea’s and coffee are available every Sunday. Everybody is welcome at Terenure RFC Community club.

Kind Regards

Paul Murphy

Mini and Youth Rugby Chairman.
