Thanks to funding from World Rugby and Rugby Canada, this programming will aim to bring a new, fun, and safe sport into Physical Education classes and introduce students to a sport that is offered by local BC Rugby Member Clubs.
The goal of the programming is to create a pathway between the Schools and Clubs, which will help young students take Rugby beyond their PE classes to a local Rugby Club, where they can enjoy regular fun and games with friends.
How Will Programming Work?
Qualified NCCP Level 1 Coaches, with a direct link to a local BC Rugby Club, will deliver non-contact Rookie Rugby programming in local elementary schools for a pre-determined time either in Fall 2022 or Spring 2023. Programming will last between 4-8 weeks.
The Coaches will also work alongside their local Rugby Clubs to run Try Rugby Days to encourage students to register and join the Club’s Fall or Spring U14 programs.
