Last update Sunday 1st March 2015

S1, S2 & U15 Training Cancelled today Sunday 01/03/2015

Pitches waterlogged & horrible weather.

Next activity will hopefully be Wednesday.

"Nearly there, but not quite yet..."

Folks, our calendar suggests we should be looking to start back this weekend - "weather permitting".

Having consulted with our coaches, we've come to the conclusion that with the weather deteriorating and forecast to be poor on Sunday and with the pitches being very, very wet and very, very muddy - that we should defer the Sunday start back of the Minisi.e. (P1-P7) until at least the following Sunday, 8th March.

P7s & P6s, Scott Douglas has posted on Facebook re starting back on Wednesday or Thursday of next week, please view and reply.

S1, S2, U15s

If weather worsens we will let people know on the day via this webpage, Facebook and Twitter ( @carthakids ). Unless you hear otherwise, assume training is on.

Under 15s
- We don't have a game this Sundayas Allan Glen's need to play a rearranged Cup match, but as Monty stated on Wednesday, we want to take the opportunity to have a 'Match' with the full Under 15 squad and with the S2s. We will mix up and match up. This will give us the opportunity to 'trial' a few players in different positions and to try a couple of different team combinations. 12.45 for 1pm start.

Under 16s
Check the usual places with Pat et al on Facebook
( and, no,n ojokes about who this Al is???)

Thanks, Stephen

CarthaKids Rugby

Our website
We're rugby people, not web people.We've put the site together ourselves to provide basic info & details for Mums & Dads, Guardians, Carers of our Minis & Midis sections. It's not perfect, but it does the job. We endeavour to keep the basic info up to date and we like trying to make it look better .... so it's possible its look will change over the next week or two .. before "settling down" for the season.

If you have any info you want to see on the site email Stephen Running with your suggestions and we'll see what we can do.

*NEW* Fixture links

This season's fixtures are nowavailable by clicking the appropriate link below.

Minis (P1-P7)

S1 & S2

Under 15

Under 16


'New Parents' - please read our Parents Handbook - it needs updating but it has some very useful info re kit

"Parents Handbook'

Our Parents'
handbook can be downloaded here, with info on CarthaKids and some useful suggestions on how to prepare and get your child ready for rugby on Sundays at Cartha.



With over 100 kids in the Minis section, phoning & even texting everyone is almost impossible. As such we have a "Comms Strategy" which goes as follows

Weekly happenings
are posted on frontpage of website & updated...even on a Sunday morning, if need be.

2. Emails
- we send emails each week, confirming what is on the website. With kids joining at different times of the year, email groups can be hard to keep up to date, so if you're not getting one, email me using minisconvenor@carthakids.com with your name, your kids name and Primary group & it will be added.

3. The CarthaKidsRugby Facebook Page
we have a facebook page and many of us visit daily...Game day plans, changes, lift requests etc - FB provides a very quick way of getting inof out. I'd urge you to join

4. Twitter
Instant way of getting info out - I tweet under the name @Carthakids - usually all about rugby so follow and instant updates will appear.


A note to remind you of our "boot exchange" programme. Kids grow quickly, they outgrow their boots. We try to make it easier by encouraging parents to hand in any boots that the kids have outgrown and then to see if there is a pair in the pool that they can swap them for - don't buy a pair without checking with us first..... don't forget to hand them in too! ALSO - rugby strips.....we're always looking for small strips, particularly for the new tinies.
