It’s a joy supporting our children in a game they’re passionate about. Andrew became a coach because hewanted to bemore involved and I take tournament photographs. It gives children opportunities to learn to be part of a team while experiencing themany emotions that come with winning or losing. Oliver plays full contact U11s rugby and

Oscar plays U7s touch rugby. They learn drills and match plays during training to then incorporate in games. We also experience a roller coaster of emotions as we watch our children grow in confidence and resilience.

There are levels that your child can progress to and challenge themselves to get through, from beginner to advanced (Bronze, Silver and Gold). Importantly, the team supervises classes carefully to ensure children are moving correctly and know how to prevent injuries.
