If you think that Mini and Junior Rugby is the end of the line for girls, then you are wrong. As soon as girls finish playing U13's mixed rugby, there are several clubs throughout the region who host U15's and U18s Girl's sides, there are also various other clubs who are interested in getting started.

Girls who play rugby at club level also have the opportunity to progress and achieve regional honours at Under 18 levels; the Under 18s Regional Competition takes place Post Christmas. Open Training Sessions are held before selection, just so every girl gets the opportunity to show off their skills. Those who are selected have the honour of representing the Blues against other Welsh regions, The Ospreys, The Dragons, The Scarlets and Gogledd Cymru from North Wales.

To help with your development as a new or as a current player, during the months of May-July each year, there are now U13 and U15 development centres popping up throughout the region. There are;

Cynon valley Development Centre (Aberdare RFC)

Venue: Michael Sobell Sports Centre, Playing Fields
