NORTHWICH Rugby Club's Superstars programme for youngsters aged three to five will return in September.

Any parent keen for their child to take part can just turn up at the Moss Farm sports complex on Sunday, September 5, for the first session of the new season.

Children should arrive kitted out in time for the 9.45am start.

There are no matches for this age group, but the training sessions are all about fun and skills as the groundwork is laid for playing competitively from the age of six if a child chooses to do so.

Ulitmately the aim is for the club to have a team at every age group from under sixes to under 18s, with three women's sides too.

The first few Superstars taster sessions are free, and then junior single membership costs £4 per month or for a family it is £10 per month.

"It's about teaching them aspects of rugby and it's a good way of them making friends," said coach Richard Dale, who is also in charge of the club's under nines team.

"These sessions are also a good way of releasing any anger as well. It's about having fun and our motto is 'give it a try'."

Skills drills, obstacles and relays races feature in the sessions, which last between 45 and 60 minutes every Sunday until a Christmas break before starting up again in January.

There is a summer camp that is a part of the Superstars programme but for children aged six to 11 being run from August 17 to 20 by under 10s and 11s coach Sam Naylor, too. Email for an application form.
