TOUCH RUGBY at TRC
TRC Touch welcomes all girls and boys that are keen to play Touch Rugby from the age of 6 (joining our U8s) all the way up to U19.
At TRC we currently have just over 200 children participating every Sunday at training, which starts at 11:00 am at the Tanglin Rugby pitches. The training sessions are great fun, a brilliant way to make new friends, and you will be coached to the highest standards in order to develop the necessary Touch playing skills to be a Touch Rugby player!
We provide access to Touch in a fun and safe environment, where children can just enjoy a team sport or for those keen to play at a higher international level.
The coaches are the parents of players on the younger teams, which gives TRC Touch its unique family atmosphere, but at each age group we have a minimum of one Technical Coach who has played Touch to a high standard. For the elder age groups we employ Professional Coaches to provide the necessary expertise for our players and to also provide an additional learning resource for our coaches. In additon, bi-annually we have specialised coaches visit TRC travelling from Australia, the leading Touch nation in the world, for coach-the-coach training, focussing on the latest skills, techniques and strategy. This approach benefits all players at TRC where the knowledge is applied to future training plans for their own age groups.
Our commitment to Touch Rugby in Singapore is demonstrated by the organisation and hosting of the annual Clifford Chance Touch Tournament. We have seen increasing numbers in player particpation and are providing an environment where our players are playing against a more diverse competition.

Touch Rugby Pathway
U8 and U10
U8 and U10 is a fun introduction to Touch, where we start teaching core skills of passing and evasion and when the children are ready they enter into friendly tournaments in their age group.
In the U12 age group, we introduce intermediate techniques, structure and tactics and the girls continue to participate in age group competition.
In the U14 age group the children continue to participate in age group competition but in addition, when a player turns 13 they are allowed to participate in the Touch Singapore (TSG) League, which is an open age competition. If a player feels comfortable and confident we encourage and support this transition into an adult league. Participating in more games at this level provides a player with the opportunity to learn more complex moves and game strategy.
AT TRC we have U14 teams playing in the TSG (previously TAS) League:
Eagles - Women's C Grade runners up 2017
Falcons – Women’s D Grade runners up 2017
U16 - U19
The U16 and U19 age group are where our eldest players hone their skills. TRC has had a number of girls go onto gain junior and open age international honours for a number of countries.
