There has never been a better time to introduce your child to rugby. Kids First Rugby is a new approach to the way mini rugby is played at rugby clubs across England. It is a programme of coaching and playing that puts the child at the centre and moves on at the child’s own pace and development, enabling more children to experience success.

The new rules for playing rugby under the Kids First Rugby approach are now mandatory at all rugby clubs in England at Under 7s, Under 8s and Under 9s age groups. New rules for U10s, U11s and U12s are also currently being trialled.

Rugby for your child is safe, teaches them terrific life skills and values, and above all is great fun. You can find out more by downloading the below online resources:
