About Us

Rugby Active is for everyone to enjoy, whether you attend our In School Coaching, After School Clubs or Holiday Clubs.

Our Clubs provide a safe, welcoming and enjoyable environment for your child, where they will mix with loads of other children, get active but most importantly have fun. During our sessions your child will be kept busy and active with a huge variety of activities based around rugby and other sports.

The programme is open to all children and all abilities are welcome. So if your child has never played rugby before or if they are experienced at the game, we cater our coaching to all levels of ability - to ensure all children benefit at the appropriate level.

We ensure your child has fun, meets new friends, whilst learning the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle. The programme helps your child improve their communication skills, build self-confidence, develop valuable social skills and be able to express themselves through rugby and sport. Rugby Union is one of England’s fastest growing team sports, bringing in new challenges and a need to promote the sports strengths.

The RFU Rugby "Core Skills"

All of our sessions are based on The RFU Rugby "Core Skills", which are; Running, Evasion, Handling, Kicking and Tackling. The RFU Rugby "principles of play" are; Communication, Go Forward, Support, Continuity, Pressure and Contest Possession. This is delivered in interactive skill zones, Game play, one to one coaching and also bringing in other activities to give your child the opportunity to learn, develop and achieve!

Due to the varying levels of experience and ability, all rugby games are based on 'Touch' rugby and is therefore non-contact. The Tackle essentials and 'The Safe Tackle' are taught in a separate skill zone using pads and equipment.

The APES Principles

All sessions are based and delivered on APES Principles: ACTIVE, PURPOSEFUL, ENJOYABLE and SAFE. We introduce all children to the RFU Core Values and embed these into delivery in all of our sessions. We discuss these Values in a two way forum asking the children to engage and explain what they are and what they mean to them. During the active sessions our coaches highlight any short comings in the RFU Core Values, with an explanation, direction and feedback points for improvement. These Values are highly regarded and upheld in Rugby Union and are key transferable values on and off the pitch for all children, in all sports.

Children are rewarded for upholding the RFU Core Values with the presentation of a certificate at the end of each day.

Our feedback from children and parents speaks for itself:
