Social Inclusion Award 2009/10
Winner: Eastleigh Hurricanes
Eastleigh Hurricanes are a new addition to the club which is the first of its type in the south and has been set up so that we can offer 'tag' rugby to children and young adults with special needs and learning difficulties. There has been a great response and this fully-integrated section now has enough players to run two teams. The Hurricanes share all the facilities and continue to train alongside and play against existing squads at the club. The club has also adopted the 'Try Again' program this season, coaching young offenders and children with behavioural issues.
