The Under 6's are for both boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 6 although depending on skills we sometimes take slightly younger ones.
The aims of the Under 6's are
Everything we do is designed to ensure that, first and foremost, all participants have fun and are enthusiastic about their rugby training. Every week we cover a variety of exercises designed to develop basic individual and team skills through play. We engender healthy competition but always with a strong emphasis on sportsmanship and encouragement.
As parents ourselves we treat the safety of your children as paramount when considering our itinerary. Tag rugby at this age level is non-contact in that we do not play to tackle or encourage aggression towards each other. But don't expect any clean shirts because children seem to love the mud!!
Develop good hand-eye coordination, balance and agility. Your child gets "The feel good factor" through exercise, helping towards your child feeling happy and content. Your child is encouraged to play in teams, teaching important social skills, friendship, discipline and team building.
Building for the future
We consider it a great honour to be the people giving your children their first taste of rugby and aim to ensure the healthy behaviours our sport provides helps to develop your children well for their future and keep them coming back for years to come.
If you have any questions contact a member of staff below or feel free to turn up at a training session.
