Steve Bates and fifth year student coaches have visited three local primary schools to introduce the children to rugby in the form of Partnership Tag Rugby sessions. The Year 5 and 6 pupils have been enthusiastic to take part in the lessons which focus on fundamental skill development such as passing and evasion. They have developed their teamwork skills as they learn to look who to pass to and have become familiar with new equipment. The student coaches have worked hard to help engage the children and make the sessions fun and active. We look forward to working with more schools in the future and plans for a tag rugby festival are in the pipeline.
