Hove Rugby Football Club Junior Section is split into three:-
Hove Rugby Football Club is the club with the largest number of RFU-registered Junior players in Sussex. Over 400 children enjoy rugby union on Sundays (and, where applicable, during weekday evening sessions) at our club.
Rugby is a great sport in which to get your child involved - improving fitness, and learning the value of teamwork and respect. Please contact us if you are interested in joining.

Annual membership is due in September. The cost for a family is £120 (family - £50; first playing child - £70). The membership covers all members of the family, not only the playing child. If siblings wish to play, there is an additional charge of £20 per sibling.
This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.
We've been going to HRFC for about 4 years now and I can't recommend it highly enough. When we first went, as a single parent, I was looking for male role models for my son, as he didn't have many male teachers, and we were welcomed with open arms. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, and we have become more and more involved in the Club. Lots of Mums are involved and it is very different to the stereotypical view of a male dominated environment. My son is naturally sporty and receives a fantastic level of coaching, and has developed a huge loyalty to the club - he never has to be persuaded to get up and go on a Sunday morning. There is a huge team spirit within the club. We have also been on tour with the club for the last four years. Communication within the club had been slightly sporadic previously but there has been a massive push to improve on this within the last year.
We've been going to Hove Rugby Football Club (HRFC) for about 6 years now - the boys go every Sunday morning and we are off on tour to Bournemouth with them this weekend! I think it's a brilliant activity for the children to do outside of school and meet new friends. The Coaches are fantastic - they are all unpaid and provide the service as they love rugby and want to pass this and rugby skills on to others. Its fantastic exercise for the kids too! Children under 8 play tag rugby and my younger son cannot wait until he is 8 and can start tackling! There is a great family atmosphere there and I can't praise it highly enough.
I play at HRFC and both my children have been going there for 8 or 9 years. The club is great - it is very family orientated and manages to involve everyone, definitely not a "win at all costs" kind of club. There is great food available ranging from bacon sandwiches through to full Sunday Roasts. You get the general sense that everyone is happy with the Club, which is borne out by us all turning up in the cold and rain
Hove RFC is a fantastic club with a great, inclusive and friendly approach to newcomers. Everyone is so enthusiastic that anyone coming by and wanting to join up or try it out will be pointed in the right direction within seconds. Our two boys have been involved for a number of years now and they love it. The success their sections have had is infectious and down to the quality of the coaching and the attitudes of respect and fair play this engenders in the children. And it doesn't stop there for the game is played in the right spirit by all the competition we come across locally. Onwards and upwards for the future Lions!
Fantastic club with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. All kids that want to be can be fully involved in fun training sessions to develop their confidence and skills and play friendlies against other clubs and tournaments across Sussex and even tours along the south coast. My son and my daughter have benefitted hugely from the talented, committed, and supportive volunteer coaches. As long as you have a robust washing machine I highly recommend it.

I joined Hove RFC in 2003 along with my two sons. I had played rugby at school and university, but the boys were new to the game. A season after they both started, I took up the game again and still attempt to play on Saturday afternoons. Both boys still play - the younger one for Hove Colts and the older one for his university, and for Hove RFC 1sts when he is back on holiday. Both have been very successful at Hove. The older boy was captain of the all-conquering Colts team of 2010-11, while the younger was part of the U14, U15 and U16 team that were Sussex champions at both A and B team levels. Though success has come to boys in their years at the club, I like to think that their life education has been greatly enhanced by being part of a rugby club, where they have learned the values of respect, teamwork and discipline, values that are driven hard by the RFU itself. On a personal level, my journey through Hove RFC started when I was asked to produce a monthly newsletter to keep coaches, parents and children up-to-date with developments at the club. I then took on more and more responsibilities - safeguarding, managing one of the age groups and other general administrative tasks. In 2008, I successfully took the club through its RFU Seal of Approval process, during which the RFU examines a club's structures, plans and policies, particularly with regard to young people. Between 2010 and 2012, I was Manager at the club, before becoming Secretary in June 2012.
