Rugby 101 takes off!
Royalians’ grassroots program, Rugby 101 was off to good start! With a value – based approach to the delivery of the program, it was jammed pack with lessons on teamwork, respect & passion. To break the ice with the participants, the coaches used creativity to encourage them to fly like planes and reversing like cars before the general warm. The activity seemed to set the tone for the rest of the 1hr 30min session as the Lead Coach of the session described “the session was really great with lots of laughter from both the coaches and the kids” – Blossom Stewart.
Some rugby skills learnt in the first session was handling, evasion & kicking.
