Youth Rugby U19 Squad
Welcome to the Dubai Hurricanes U19 squad.
The U19 Youth format continues to develop the player as they physically grow in preparation for their transition into senior rugby. With change in age grouping by the UAERF players between the age of 17 and U19 training and play together. To ensure the safety of the players we place a tremendous emphasis on fit and core strength for the players, as well as a strong sense of teamwork and camaraderie supported by individual skill.
To prepare the player for adult rugby we encourage members of this squad to train with the Senior Men’s squad where possible. This does not involve full contact unless the coaching believes the player is capable and has parental consent!
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.
Being mindful of commitments to A Levels being a member of the U18 is a great stress release from studying allowing your son to keep not only body fit but also his mind. We have traditionally entered a squad into the World Rugby Dubai 7s tournament held in the first week of December. This becomes the primary training goal for the squad during the first part of the season.
