Rugbytots and Premier Rugby have agreed a 12 month pilot to roll out the Rugbytots programme - and at Worcester Warriors we are already showing what can be done with exciting new classes.
Rugbytots is a weekly play session for children between the ages of two and five years. It combines the multiple skills used in rugby with a fun, energetic and structured play programme designed to enhance your child's social and physical skills.
A session was recently held at Sixways Stadium to show coaches what could be done - and as you can see from this picture the youngsters involved clearly enjoyed themselves. The UK's first rugby specific play programme for young children is also running weekly at RGS The Grange in Claines, Worcester.
"We're delighted to be able to join forces with Worcester Warriors and offer Springfield as a regional base for this exciting new UK play programme," commented Marion Lloyd, Headmistress of Springfield. "To be one of the first to host this activity in the county is a real honour for the school and tribute to how highly respected our Early Year's initiatives are. I urge families of Worcester to come along, join in and enjoy a truly unique children's activity."
It is Rugbytots fundamental belief that the game of rugby promotes such a wide range and varied number of skills which are transferable into the majority of sports and walks of life. The Rugbytots programme has been designed to develop your child's physical, psychological and social attributes, as well as gently encouraging rugby specific skills such as running with the ball, finding space, kicking, catching, scoring a try and much more.
