Our club complies with the rules and regulations set out for amateur clubs by the English RFU.
All players are required to complete the following:

RFU Young player registration form

Taster sessions (the first 2 sessions) are free

The RFU+family association annual fees are:
Minis (Under 7/8s) - £60 per year
Minis (Under 9/10s) - £90 per year
Youth (Under 11/12 and upward) - £120 per year

All payments include a £20 mandatory payment to become members of the Anchorians Association. This allows players & family access to the building, toilets, cafe & bar. There is one charge per family per year.

Siblings - for this season we are waiving fees for younger brothers or sisters, only the eldest player will pay subs. This may need to be reviewed next year - but we hope to encourage more families to play by making it more affordable.
