This demonstrates to parents, sponsors and the public that we are well organised, safe and offer opportunities for all. We have FA qualified coaches as standard, adhere to FA respect policies and prioritise child welfare.

We run junior boys and girls teams for 6 – 16 year olds as well as two senior teams. We have our own ground and modern clubhouse facilities at Castle Drive. Our teams start playing here in the youngest teams and hopefully end up back here with the seniors. In between we make use of training facilities and pitches across the town including the new 3G facility at Kendal Rugby Club, Millennium Fields and Jubilee Fields. We jointly run the Millenium Fields with Ibis.
