The U12 Boys team trains from September 2020 to April 2021 for the 2020/21 season. They typically train every Sunday morning at Happy Valley Recreation Ground in Happy Valley unless there is a Richard Hawkes Cup Tournament or it is a key holiday period. You can find the detailed training and Minis Rugby Festival schedules below.
Allan has coached with Valley Fort for the past three years and has boys playing in the U12 and U13 age groups this season. Having played for clubs and university in the cold and wet West of Ireland, Allan’s love for the game was rekindled by the enthusiasm and support of the Valley Fort community and the parent and pro-coaches that train the kids each week. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Allan tries his hand at refereeing and has completed HKRU First Aid in Sports courses.
