Over the last term we have been working closely with the RFU and Gloucester Rugby to create a town wide Rugby Coaching Partnership. Students from local secondary schools have been invited to join Harry from Gloucester and Steve from Abingdon at a series of coaching sessions at Tilsley Park. These sessions give both boys and girls the opportunity to play touch rugby and work with students from other schools. The sessions have been well received and will continue this term, students have found them both fun and informative. A real benefit of the sessions is the variety of players who attend, this has led to opportunities for peer to peer support and encouragement. These sessions are part of a drive to provide access to rugby for young people across the community.
