LittleLions-Rugby Toddler Sessions at Thorner Parish Hall

The LittleLions-Rugby ‘Toddler Only’  sessions can be found at the Parish Hall, Thorner. Our sessions run from 11.30am – 12.30pm on a Thursday. What’s interesting is that our sessions run immediately after the Thorner Toddler Group. This means parents/Carers can either join the Playgroup at 10.00am and then stay on for our Toddler Class, or just come at 11.30am, just for the LittleLions-Rugby session.

Don’t be put off by the word ‘rugby’. Our sessions are more like a multi-sports session where we have included a rugby ball at every opportunity because of our love for the game. No experience or knowledge of the game is needed. All your child needs (girl or boy) is the capacity to have ‘FUN!’

We offer a full and exciting morning for the children which they all thoroughly enjoy, not to mention it gives the parents/carers a time to relax before taking up the reins again for the rest of the day.

TIME:                   11.30am – 12.20pm
