Welcome to the U5 Boys and Girls team!
Our U5 interim Head Coach is Pro Coach Leader for the Minis section, Henry Shiell. Henry will manage the U5 age group until a suitable parent is identified. Henry is well supported by a core group of parent volunteers and our club wide Director of Rugby. See below for their details and how to contact them with any questions about the U5 programme.
The U5 team trains from Sunday 3rd September 2023 to April 2024 for the 2023/24 season. Typically, they train every Sunday morning at Happy Valley Sports Ground from 08:00 – 09:30 unless there is a Minis Rugby Festival or it is a key holiday period.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to email us.
Henry is fromBrighton in England and is coming into his second year at both Valley RFC and Valley Fort RFC. After a stint in Australia playing rugby and a few years back in the UK, Henry moved over to Hong Kong to play. He worked with the contact minis last year and is back again this year taking on a new role as Pro Coach Lead for the Non-Contact Minis as well as coaching the combined U13/U14 Boys squad. He is very excited to be working again with Valley Fort this season and is looking forward to contributing as much as possible in all his roles with the club this season. Henry is on track to be World Rugby Level 2 Qualified by this autumn.
