Touch Rugby at TRC

TRC Touch welcomes all girls and boys that are keen to play Touch Rugby from the age of 6(joining our U8s) all the way up to U19.

At TRC we currently have just over 200 children participating every Sunday at training, which starts at 11:00 am at the Tanglin Rugby pitches. The training sessions are great fun, a brilliant way to make new friends, and you will be coached to the highest standards in order to develop the necessary Touch playing skills to be a Touch Rugby player!

The coaches are the parents of players on the younger teams, which gives TRC Touch its unique family atmosphere, but at each age group we have a minimumof one Technical Coach who has played Touch to a high standard.For the elder age groupswe employ Professional Coaches to provide the necessary expertise for our players and to also provide an additional learning resource for our coaches.In additon, bi-annually we have specialised coaches visit TRC travelling from Australia, the leading Touch nation in the world, for coach-the-coach training, focussing on the latest skills, techniques and strategy. This approach benefits all players at TRC where the knowledge is applied to future training plans for their own age groups.

Our commitment to Touch Rugby in Singapore is demonstrated by the organisation and hosting of the annual Clifford Chance Touch Tournament. We have seen increasing numbers in player particpation and are providing an environment where our players are playing against a more diverse
competition.

Touch Rugby Pathway

U8 and U10

U8and U10 is a fun introduction to Touch, where we start teaching core skills of passing and evasion and when the children are ready they enter into friendly tournaments in their age group.

U12

In the U12 age group, we introduce intermediate techniques, structure and tactics and the girls continue to participate in age group competition.

U14

In the U14 age group the children continue to participate in age group competition but in addition, when a player turns 13 they are allowed to participate in the Touch Singapore (TSG) League, which is an open age competition.If a player feels comfortable and confident we encourage and support this transition into an adult league.Participating in more games at this level provides a player with the opportunity to learn more complex moves and game strategy.
