Welcome to the Bergen Rugbyklubb junior team. Following on from the ethos originally planted in the Minis we also have the same principles of rugby, camaraderie, fair play, respect and teamwork. These principles, whilst are evident throughout our Junior team, are continued to be taught as building blocks before entering into Senior team play.
Bergen Rugbyklubb identified a need to promote new and younger players to evolve into good players extending themselves through knowledge and skills to then join the Senior team and so, the Junior Team was established.
During the season, we currently train twice a week and play matches on the weekends. Our matches are played in Bergen and around Norway. Last season the Juniors went on tour to England and we are hopeful of a tour to Poland and Sweden in the near future. We have a great coaching team who have been certified through the IRB Get into rugby program Upto Rugby Educator level and through our organized rugby training programme players learn skills to enjoy this great game including scrummaging, tackling and scoring all with safety as paramount.
The Juniors pride themselves on friendship, a great sense of humor and fun and a strong work ethic whilst playing the game they love – rugby. Many of our Juniors have played for the Bergen Rugbyklubb Seniors and also the National Junior Team against other countries and Bergen hosted the National Junior Championships in September this year which the Bergen Junior Team won.
If you would like to come and try the Juniors and you are aged between 11 to 19 come and meet us at Krohnsminde (next to Danmarksplass) on Tuesdays 19.30 to 20.45 and Thursdays from 18.45 to 20.00. Junior training takes place all year round.
We look forward to meeting you.
