IMA_1151.jpg

We have 4 strategic objectives around which we set our goals and objectives:

       CLUB: To provide the highest quality on-field rugby offering and coaching in         Hong Kong.

       COMMUNITY: To have the best club culture amongst players, parents and

       coaches in Hong Kong.

       INDIVIDUAL: To instill the core Rugby values and develop all players as                   individuals.

       SUSTAINABILITY: To be financially independent and in strong health.

PHILOSOPHY

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We welcome boys and girls of all abilities from all corners of Hong Kong.  We aim, firstly, for new players to gain confidence and to increase their contribution to their team.  Our players are encouraged to lead by example on and off the field in the fairest and truest spirit of the game.

It is vital to us that players of every age, gather and improve both the individual skills and the team-work that forms the foundation of the full game of rugby, played under HKRFU laws.  We aim for all our players to reach their potential within the sport and to develop the desire to maintain a lifelong involvement in it.  For our most committed players, that means providing the foundation for progression through Hong Kong National Age Grade levels and eventually into our senior club, Societe Generale Valley RFC.  From there, a cap for Hong Kong is naturally, the ultimate goal!

We ask players, parents and coaches to show sportsmanship and to adopt a competitive but fair attitude and an honest dedication to the Valley Fort Codes of Conduct and to our Valley Fort colours.

HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

Valley Fort RFC is one of the oldest mini and youth rugby clubs in Hong Kong.  The Club was founded in the 1970s through the merger of two of Hong Kong’s oldest and most prestigious rugby clubs, Stanley Fort RFC and Valley RFC.

Our original training ground was Stanley Fort – at the time, the home of the British Garrison on Hong Kong island and now the base of the People’s Liberation Army.  Some of our teams continue to train at the Fort.  However, with over 600 playing members, we are now one of the largest junior clubs in Hong Kong and have added training venues in Tai Tam, Aberdeen and Happy Valley.

TEAMS

TEAMS

In common with other rugby clubs in Hong Kong, our players are initially put into teams according to age.

From U5 – U8, the teams are of mixed ability. At U9, coaches will start to tier players and at U10, streaming starts in earnest.

We welcome boys and girls of all abilities from all corners of Hong Kong.  We aim, firstly, for new players to gain confidence and to increase their contribution to their team.  Our players are encouraged to lead by example on and off the field in the fairest and truest spirit of the game.
