Mini & Youth
Blackrock mini and youth teams can be found almost every Sunday (except for away matches!) at Stradbrook Road, Blackrock where we have 3 full size rugby pitches. Each age group participates in Leinster Metro fixtures which typically provide 10-14 matches per season, as well as rugby festivals and tours in the older age groups.
New players (boys and girls) are welcome in any age group at any time during the season.
For queries regarding a specific age group, please see our contact us page, otherwise for general enquiries please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
