# Welcome to U10 Girls!

Welcome to the U10 Girls team! All players eligible for this age group should have been born in either 2010 or 2011.

The U10 Girls team is a combined U9/U10 Girls age group managed and led by parents Ashlee Schroth, Erol Elson and Andrea Plotkin. The core rugby coaching and skill development is run by two of our Valley SocGen RFC professional players, Claudia McMeekin and Samia Saidi. They are also all well supported by a core group of parent volunteer coaches. Click on the coaches bio’s below to find out more about our coaches!

The U10 Girls team trains from September 2019 to April 2020 for the 2019/20 season. They typically train every Sunday morning at Aberdeen Sports Ground on the Southside unless there is a Minis Rugby Festival or it is a key holiday period.  You can find the detailed training and Minis Rugby Festival schedules below.
