Located in the heart of Belmont, CIYMS R.F.C. was formed 1922, the past near-century seeing some twelve members gain International Caps, three of whom played on Lions Tours.  A great many others have represented and captained both Senior and Junior Ulster. CIYMS R.F.C. Mini Rugby Club is a thriving grass roots club, providing entirely voluntary coaching to over 180 children from the local community and further afield, in year groups P2 to P7.

Each spring sees the P7 year group embark on the pinnacle of their Mini Rugby careers. This year in early April, twenty-five intrepid 10 and 11 year olds will head off to The Bournemouth Festival in the South of England. The Bournemouth Festival is one of the largest and best established of its kind in the UK and last year had over 120 Mini teams and more than 40 Junior teams in age groups between U7 and U16. With over 10,000 players the event promises to be a great end to playing for CIYMS Minis.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our P7 boys in their quest for glory on what, for most, will be their ‘First Tour’, a truly exciting time and one we hope will be their ‘First’ of many in their careers of ongoing enjoyment and development in this great game.
