JUNIOR TAG

Unfortunately our JUNIOR TAG programme is currently not running due to Covid-19 Government restrictions.  As soon as we know when we can resume playing in DLR Monkstown, we will let you know.  If your child (boys & girls aged 8 - 12 yrs) is interested.  Please email simon.bewley@tagrugby.ie or call (m) 086-3972822 to put their name down.

The Irish Tag Rugby Association (ITRA) have been pioneering Tag since we first introduced the sport twenty one years ago to Ireland in the summer of 2000.

Junior Tag is a fun, non-contact sport for 8 – 12 year old boys & girls to play. The emphasis is on running, passing and tagging.(Removing a Velcro Tag replaces the "tackle").  There will be separate Boys / Girls Tag for this term.

We are launching Junior Tag coaching for 8 - 12 year old boys and girls to experience and learn the joys of Junior Tag. These coaching sessions all commence from Wed 16th Sept and Thursday 17th Sept and will run for an initial 12 week term until Wed 9th Dec and Thursday 10th December 2020 at the special introductory price of €6 per session (€72 for 12 weeks payable in advance). There will be no Junior Tag over the October mid-term break.

Your child will need to bring the correct footwear; runners, astro shoes or moulded rubber boots are all fine. NO PLASTIC or METAL STUDDED BOOTS permitted! They will also need a bottle of water for hydration.

Your child does not need any previous Tag experience and we welcome boys and girls of all abilities. They will be coached the basics of how to play Tag, rules, skills, and finish with fun matches.  

The Tag coaching will have 1 adult coach to 14 players in line with Gov sporting regulations.That group will not mix with anybody else.The session will last for 55 min, to allow 5min for players to leave / arrive and balls will be sprayed down and new tags replaced after each session.

Parents may stay to watch their child play, so long as they remain outside the perimeter fencing of the pitch and maintain the 2m social distancing guidelines.

We hope to see your children booked in and playing Junior Tag and making new friends.
