Our Rugby school was established over 10 years ago, with the objective of providing a safe and fun environment for learning to play rugby, right in the heart of Brussels.
We field teams in all age grades from under 6 all the way through to under 18s, with the players transitioning to our Youth Development section from U16.
Up to the U12s the teams compete in regular tournaments with clubs from all over Belgium, while the U14s, 16s and 18s participate in national leagues. We also regularly host touring international sides.
Our players come from all corners of the world, with many from the Celtic nations, the UK, Belgium, France, Italy and the Netherlands, but also representatives from North America, South Africa, Japan, Australia and more. We train our players primarily in English though Dutch and French are also used as soon as a few frowns of incomprehension appear on the faces of our many non-Anglophone club members.
We play on a state of the art pitch on the VUB campus in Ixelles, found in front of the tram stop VUB. Generally speaking the teams up to U12 train at the VUB every Saturday, from 10 to 12, while participating in tournaments approximately once a month.
The U14 to U18 teams complete in national leagues and play a match most weekends. All teams from U10 and older have training on Wednesday evening at the VUB, from 6 to 8pm.
These are the age categories and corresponding coaches for the rugby school teams.
