Come and join the most vibrant, fun and exciting Juniors Club in East London.

We are a grassroots, particpation-based community club. Whilst we believe the competitive nature of our sport is part of what makes it such a brilliant tool to help develop children and young people, our priority is their development. We take a long term view and create an environment where players can learn the values that Hackney RFC is built on: Inclusion, Respect and Community. Our approach to coaching is underpinned by 2 key ideas: A player centered focus and learning through games not drills.  This will develop their decision making and tactical understanding, creativity and resilience

Joining Process

In line with clubs across the country, Hackney Rugby Football Club uses the England Rugby’s Game Management System (“GMS”) to manage club membership, and player registrations. GMS will allow you to manage the information the club holds about you, register yourself or your child as a player with Hackney Rugby Football Club, and pay for your membership. It enables you and your child to be registered for Insurance and Safeguarding purposes. Setting up accounts and registrations for both parent and child must be done by a parent.

Please follow the guides below to both 1. 'Create an account'  and 2. 'Sport Easy' .

There is no need to do 'Membership Subscriptions' till you have completed your free sessions.
