Usually Rugby boots should be worn for matches but at the start of the season when the ground can be hard and dry still your coach will tell you if trainers are more appropriate. Children should try and avoid putting on any Rugby boots until they get to the ground, so studs don’t get scratched up. Festivals always seem to be muddy! Wellies or waterproof boots for adults and kids are a good idea, or crocs if it’s a bit milder.
