Dubai Hurricanes Manifesto

Dubai Hurricanes Manifesto

Welcome to the Dubai Hurricanes U16 -15 squad.

The U16-15 Youth format continues to develop the player as they physically grow. Due to numbers we train as separate U16 and U15 squads and only play up any U15 player who wishes to do and who has the capability along with their parents’ consent.

We place a tremendous emphasis on fitness and core strength for the players, as well as a strong sense of teamwork and camaraderie supported by individual skill.  We enter both squads into regional 7s and league competitions which are conducted throughout the season.

From running lines to defensive lines, driving over, bridging, rolling mauls to taking the inside shoulder, all these terms become familiar to the players as we strive to increase their level of rugby and intensity in playing the game. Key focus is around safety when going into contact and around scrummaging. In particular lifting in the line out and phased play from green to red zones are developed.

At the end of the season the goal for the team is to take their learning on tour to either Northern or Southern Hemisphere clubs.
