About the Youth Section
For team news, reports and much more see the Youth Section Web Site by clicking HERE
The Youth Section runs teams from U7s to U16s, and the Colts (U18’s).
The Youth Section board meets at least once a month and finances itself from membership fees, grants and sponsorship. The Youth Section also benefits from a share of the Chiefs “Match Day Draw” which it runs for the Club at Chiefs home fixtures. The senior Club supports Youth Rugby with use of the Club’s facilities and amenities. The Youth Section has now acquired a long lease at nearby Oil Mill Lane. Oil Mill Lane is a 13 acre site which will house 3 full sized pitches, car parking and plans for youth club house and changing facilities. Work commenced on pitch provision in April 2014.
All teams have a team administrator and coaching staff. The Club is continually striving towards RFU qualifications for all its coaches. First aid training is given to ensure that there is always qualified personnel on hand. The youth section regularly invests in new equipment, which benefits all teams of Exeter Youth Rugby Club.
Most teams play or train on Sunday mornings between 10am and 1pm. Training sessions are held on Thursday and Friday evenings on the Club’s all weather, floodlit pitch at Sandy Park.
Matches are played at Oil Mill Lane for the younger age groups whilst our home matches for Under 13 to under 18 teams are currently played a Wessex RFC, but are planned to be moved to the new youth ground at Oil Mill Lane when space becomes available..
The Colts normally play on Saturdays.
Players are provided with Chiefs shirts on match days and are provided with food after each fixture.
Supporting the Chiefs
You will regularly see players from the section on first team match days, either playing “curtain raiser” games or carrying out the duties of ball boys. The club is very keen to promote a close family atmosphere and offer rugby to all children, whatever their ability.
