Sidney Skills Awards ™
RUGGERBUGS recognises that children develop at their own rate, some faster than others, some not so fast as their immediate peer group.
Whilst some children will be developed in the physical attributes (i.e. they can run, jump, catch and throw) they also need to be developed in the social skills and understand taking turns etc.
The purpose of the Sidney Skills Awards ™ are three-fold:
1. To give you the opportunity to see how your child is developing and progressing.
2. To identify with the Coaches when your child may be ready to move up into the next level.
3. To provide your child with a FUN and memorable record of their time at RUGGERBUGS.
As your child progresses through the programme, their individual skills and development will be assessed by their Coaches. Development will be monitored during each regularly attended session, culminating in an award around their up and coming birthday
The Skills are split into four levels:
Conversion: this is aimed at children who are 2 years old (points for a Conversion) and progressing towards their 3rd Birthday (No more than 4 months prior to their 3rd Birthday).
Drop Goal: this is aimed at children who are 3 years old (points for a Drop Goal) and progressing towards their 4th Birthday (No more than 4 months prior to their 4th Birthday).
Try : this is aimed at children who are progressing towards their 5th Birthday (points for a Try) (No more than 4 months prior to their 5th Birthday).
Converted Try: this is aimed at children who are 6 years old and going into School Year 2 in September (they will be progressing towards their 7th Birthday)(points for a Converted Try). Upon receipt of this award they will “Graduate” from RUGGERBUGS to join their local Rugby Club (U7’s) Mini-Section.
