RUGGERBUGS is a fun and exciting pre-school sports development programme inspired by non-contatc rugby for boys and girls aged 18 months to 6 years. It is designed to promote a fun and positive attitude to sport and fitness.
Established in early 2007 RUGGERBUGS continues as a family run business and was innovative in developing this toddler activity and is now one of the leading companies in this field and the first to establish close associations with local rugby clubs to ensure that children can move into mini / junior rugby with ease.
Fully accredited by the Children's Activities Association, RUGGERBUGS not only gives young children a fun, and non-competitive indoor environment to enjoy a weekly activity, make new friends and develop a love of sport but parents peace of mind that the activity is safe and age appropriate
The unique RUGGERBUGS ‘Head Start’™ programme assists with a child’s Early Years Foundation Stage Development and centres on developing basic motor skills through running, jumping, catching and throwing games. Social interaction is also a key concept giving young children confidence and self-esteem.
RUGGERBUGS is different from other organisations because it agrees with the RFU that rugby is a late developing sport, and so does not teach children how to play rugby (that’s what your local club is for) but gives children a “Head Start”™ in developing skills which they can later go on and develop at club or school level.
RUGGERBUGS actively promotes grass roots rugby for boys and girls and its results are amazing but it also recognises that rugby may not be for everyone so the physical and social skills it promotes also transfer into sports such as Netball, Cricket, Football Hockey, Tennis and many more.
Give RUGGERBUGS a TRY – it will make you smile!
CLASSES HELD AT Mark Hall Sports Centre on Sunday mornings.
