Well-established links with schools in Fareham and Gosport are maintained through regular visits by our Schools Liaison Officer.
We have a strong relationship with the professional club London Irish Regular trips and training events are arranged with the Irish every season. We host a London Irish Summer Camp and February half term camp. Book here.
Youth rugby follows the nationally Age Grade Rugby which aims to "further the sport and love of the game so that it is enjoyed in the right spirit, promoting self-control, teamwork and discipline" - all in a safety-conscious environment.
There are over 300 registered youngsters playing rugby at Gosport and Fareham RFC and the Mini Youth section has a social membership of over 400 - parents who are very much involved with the running of the Club. 100+ Volunteers are the life blood opf our MY Section.
Qualified coaches operate to a strict player/coach ratio and development of our volunteer coaches is supported by our Club Coaching Coordinator.
We also play regularly at age group tournaments in the South of England and host touring sides.
The Mini/Youth section operates a 'Child Protection Policy' - details are on the main notice board in the Clubhouse and in the Members' handbook.
