- With many of our HKIS families located on the south side of the island we have partnered with Valley Fort rugby club who offer programs in this area.
The Valley Fort Rugby Football Club welcomes all children, girls and boys, ages 4 to 18 to enjoy the spirit and learn the principles of rugby in a respectful, fun and safe environment, preparing them for a lifetime of enjoyment as players, team mates, competitors, spectators, and later in their life, as parents or coaches perpetuating the traditions of rugby. We are one of the largest Mini and Colts rugby clubs in Hong Kong and on average around 800 players are registered with Valley Fort Rugby Football Club each year. Coaching is provided by volunteers parents at the younger age groups (U5 to U8) before the players receive additional specialist support from our professional coaches from U9 to U19. These Professional Coaches play for the Valley premier sides and many also represent Hong Kong at Sevens and/or the 15's.
This season the Colts will start on 27th August and the Minis will commence on 3 September, 2017 and will continue until the end of April.
Mini rugby practices on Sunday mornings in Stanley as well as Friday evenings for the mini-contact players (U9 to U12). During the season the players also participate in festivals as well as at the annual Hong Kong Sevens tournament where they compete against other Mini Rugby Clubs from across Hong Kong in a showcase of Mini Rugby.
Beyond 12 years old players progress to Colts Rugby which is organised into four age groups at Under 13, Under 14, Under 16 and Under 19 levels (for both Boys and Girls). Our Colts players train at Happy Valley on Thursday evenings and play games, or train, on Sundays.
The club also organizes tours including a regular visit to Kuala Lumpur (in March each year) to participate in the KL Saracens International 10s competition.
Please refer to the Valley Fort website for registration and kit ordering from June 1, 2017 onwards.
