Enjoy-a-Ball is a multi sports coaching programme for girls and boys aged between three and nine. All lessons are taught in a caring, positive, fun-filled environment and there are never more than 12 children in a class. Our objective is to make children’s first experiences in a sports coaching environment happy and memorable.
Physi-Ballers (Age 2 – 3) will throw a ball and generally there will not be a lot of movement in the legs and very little rotation of the body. Arm movement is from the back to the front of the body.
Bee-Boppers (Age 3 – 4) will start to rotate their body to get more force into the throw and there is more awareness of where the ball is going (aiming).
Play Ballers (Age 4 -6) will incorporate all the elements of the overhand throw. There is an obvious stride and they use their body rotation and arm speed to increase the velocity of the ball.
Champs (Age 6 – 9) will further enhance and fine-tune their skills so that they can bowl a cricket ball or pitch a baseball

Fun, structured play sessions take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. Deliver a specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement.
“Be prepared to run across the jungle, wade through the quick sand or sprint through Rugbytots Valley avoiding all the smoking boulders.”
Age 2 – 3.5: Youngest classes require full parent participation and offer a fantastic opportunity to spend quality time with your child whilst they learn new skills, meet new friends and have an exciting introduction to Rugby.
Age 3.5 – 5: These classes do not require full parent participation. Your Rugbytot will be part of a dynamic session that will develop their social and physical skills in a positive environment.
Age 5 -7: Older age group classes really start to prepare children for life after Rugbytots. The same structure is followed but these sessions involve advanced team games and ensure that the basic skills of rugby are coached in the right way by maintaining small class numbers.

Sling Swing is a gentle baby wearing exercise class aimed at promoting bonding whilst learning a fun dance routine. Babywearing has so many benefits for both parent and baby. It’s a great workout for you and a great way for your little one to relax and cuddle. I find I can respond to my daughter’s cues quicker, and it even helps with colic.
It’s not just for mums – dads, carers, grandparents are all welcome! Anyone who enjoys having fun with music and movement.
I have attended a Babywearing course and am a qualified Personal Trainer so I do ensure babies are worn correctly and that we warm up and cool down safely. If you don’t have your own sling, don’t worry, I can provide Connectas and I also have one stretchy wrap. You can also borrow slings from the West Yorkshire Sling Library.
Monday -Wetherby Town Hall
Wednesday – Tom Ball Live Studio, Seacroft
From September I will also be offering Junior Sling Swing. These classes focus more on dance routines using Pom poms, scarves and ribbons for 5-7year olds. Please enquire about class details.
