Profile: Little Rugby

Catch, weave, chase and run…. they always have lots of fun at the classes across the whole of the Gold Coast and Greater Brisbane region.

The basics of rugby are imparted through specially developed games which fire the children’s imaginations. Rugby specific skills such as throwing, passing and running forwards are interwoven in a unique programme which also encourages the development of more generic skills such as balance, hand-eye co-ordination and physical agility. In addition to this, valuable concepts like sharing, taking turns, teamwork and listening to instructions are incorporated in the activities. Specially developed kit and equipment ensures that the kids who take part can maximise their enjoyment in a safe, age-appropriate environment.  And as it’s non-contact, we can promise there’ll be no rucks, mauls or scrums!

Life as we know is rarely a level playing field, which is why their tailor-made programme seeks to let every child develop at his or her own pace, by playing alongside other kids of similar ages and abilities. In short, the three-tiered approach (Junior, Mighty and Mega Rugby) provides a gently staggered learning environment which allows every child to quickly find his or her feet.

Junior Rugby – 2 years to approx. 3 ½ years
Mighty Rugby – 3 ½ years to 5th birthday
Mega Rugby – 5 years to 7th birthday

The programme has two coaches at every class which means that parents can take time out to relax whilst the kids are well and truly entertained as well as ensuring their health and fitness and confidence with sport are increased.

You can book in for a free trial class at any of the venues across Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
