Rugby Tots – North Leeds

**FREE Taster sessions available, please email james@rugbytots.co.uk for locations and times and to book on.

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.

The Stage 2 course gives 14-30 month olds, and their families, the opportunity to enjoy more complex topics, with more physical exertion! More animals to encounter, colours to explore, and lots of weather conditions to experience over the 10 weeks! As children develop speech, having the support of a physical gesture alongside emerging words, makes it much less frustrating for everyone!
