DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

‘I firmly believe that introducing children to sport at a young age can go a long way to help with confidence and self-esteem building. The Ruggerbugs classes seem a really fun way for kids to experience the joy of being part of a team as well as introducing them to core character building skills for the future including resilience and respect.”

Richard Wigglesworth, Saracens & England (Dec 2018)

I just wanted to let you know that our son is now going to move onto the Rugby club, so as to continue the great work that you and your team have done over the past 4 years.

Andy Parent

“ I had been aware of these kinds of events and classes taking place around the country, but I’m thrilled to have been able to get hands-on in a Ruggerbugs class and meet one of the teams behind the incredible fundraising that took place during Children’s Activities Week. Being from Australia I should know all about rugby and so it has been great fun getting involved with the kids and seeing just how happy and active everyone is! It’s wonderful to see the children making new friends and burning off energy – something parents will love too as the kids are sure to fall asleep after all the fun! RUGGERBUGS are the best!

“Every weekend groups of children aged 18 months to 5 years pick up a ball and take part in RUGGERBUGS.
 
The ground-breaking initiative was created to get more youngsters involved in sport and has produced astonishing results.”
RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE (October 2008),

“I wouldn’t just define success of Ruggerbugs on how the kids are getting on with rugby now, Ruggerbugs gave the kids a great opportunity to re-enforce school learning and to try out rugby. We all know rugby isn’t going to be everyone’s sport but it opens their mind to other sports and that is also incredible enlightening for them, there’s a massive push on the kids to play football, but sport isn’t just football, so if they aren’t good or into football that doesn’t mean they cannot enjoy other sports.”

Paul

“Every parent should hear about Ruggerbugs! What a great way for kids to burn off energy, whilst instilling invaluable life lessons in teamwork and camaraderie. The inclusive class format means that girls and boys of all abilities can get involved in a safe and friendly environment and enjoy everything that is so great about our sport!”

“My son started at Ruggerbugs aged around 18 months. He went almost every Sunday and progressed through the various age bands, eventually ‘graduating’ around the age of 6! He enjoyed his time immensely. His co-ordination skills improved dramatically and very quickly. He also learnt at an early stage the value of teamwork and friendship. A few members of his Ruggerbugs group moved up to the local rugby club minis and have played together in successive ages groups from under 7s to their present team in the under 12s. My son is now a valued member of his club team as well as an integral cog of his school A year 7 side. Next stop Scotland in the Six Nations!!”
