Long Description :
RUGGERBUGS is a fun and exciting pre-school sports development programme based around non-contact rugby for girls and boys, aged 18 months to Six years. It is designed to promote a fun and positive attitude to sport and fitness from an early age.
Established in early 2007 RUGGERBUGS 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.
Over the past 7 years, RUGGERBUGS has grown from one class to 40 with over 650+ children attending 16 centres across Herts, Essex, Kent, and London each weekend, as well as week day sessions in local Pre-Schools, PPA cover and After-School Clubs.
An informal yet professional programme, RUGGERBUGS gives young children a fun, safe and non-competitive indoor environment to enjoy a weekly activity, make new friends and develop a love of sport.
RUGGERBUGS is different from other organisations because because it agrees with the RFU that rugby is a late developing sport, it does not teach children how to play rugby but promotes the game at grass roots level and gives children a “Head Start” in developing skills which they can later go on and develop at club or school level.
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, throwing and catching games. Valuable life skills are gently introduced and developed throughout the programme ensuring children not only benefit from increased stamina but also confidence and self-esteem all of which is vital for a healthy lifestyle.
RUGGERBUGS delivers it’s informal yet professional programme through the use of a rugby ball. Rugby is fun and RUGGERBUGS provides a ‘Head Start’™ into the wonderful game by not only equipping children with basic skills they can go onto develop at school or club level but also evoking a great sense of discipline and camaraderie.
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.
RUGGERBUGS is an innovative and unique family business working closely with parents to ensure that their little ones receive the best playing experience.
