Professional and Fun Children's Rugby    

Rugby development programme for 5 to 7 years

Our children’s rugby activities development programme for 5 to 7 years is based on enhancing and perfecting the technical fundamentals of rugby. At this age we begin to increase skill utilization in the when, where and how what they have learnt is applied. Tackling is not on the cards yet however the basics of tag and the laws of the game are now starting to be introduced.

We aim to teach children about positive attitudes, positive lifestyle choices and to help them develop into a holistic individual. In our activities for kids at this age we encourage other areas of learning such as colours, numbers, visuals and critical thinking.

Physical education develops children’s physical fitness and confidence, and their ability to use these to perform in a number of activities. Rugby promotes a child’s physical skilfulness, development and knowledge of the body in action. At RugbyBugs we provide fun opportunities for kids to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. We pride ourselves on promoting positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.

Playing children’s rugby at this age will help children learn how to think in different ways to suit a wide variety of creative and challenging activities. They will learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to improve their quality and effectiveness. Through the RugbyBugs process kids can discover their aptitudes, abilities and preferences, and make choices about how to get involved lifelong physical activity in a fun and highly enjoyable environment.
