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
