Douglas run a Mini and Junior Section, which is the oldest of its kind on the Isle of Man. Our results speak for themselves - Cheshire Cup winners and various placements at County level in all age groups.
We run an annual Tournament for all junior age groups and visiting teams are always encouraged to come along and participate. We aim to take our playing members away to the UK each season to watch Premiership rugby and play against English opposition.
The club runs coaching groups for all ages from tag (non-contact) at U7 age through to full contact 15-a-side games in the older age groups, up to U17 age.
In addition to playing in Isle of Man tournaments, the club has entered three teams (U13s, U15s and U16s) in the Cheshire Cup. This gives the players great experience, touring with a team and playing against clubs from off-Island.
This year the club hopes to build on the first XV’s success last year; they were promoted the South Lancashire & Cheshire League One for the first time in the club’s history and are currently the highest placed league team in the Isle of Man. At the Junior level the club had a number of players who represented Cheshire at county level.
In addition to its success on the pitch, the club has started the upgrade of its facilities this summer with extensive building work to the clubhouse which will provide a new function room and kitchen facilities with two new changing rooms being added.
