The Rugrats Rugby programme has been identified by the Stars of both codes of the game as an excellent way to develop your child's skills. Check out their comments below:
Darren Fearn, Bedford Blues, former Newcastle Falcons
“A fantastic programme and concept to get young children involved in sport in a fun and energetic environment. An excellent way for children to develop skills and it gets my full support.”
John Bentley former dual code and British & Irish Lions International:
"Rugby promotes the qualities in life, that are fundamental to being a good person. Discipline, attitude, self belief, intelligence, teamwork, sportsmanship, manners and behaviour. Messages that parents also see as priorities when guiding young people through the challenge of life".
Ryan McGoldrick, Salford City Reds & USA International:
"Rugrats Rugby is a fantastic scheme aimed at young children that encourages them to get involved in sport. Not only does it develop skills it also provides physical activity and a social environment in which young people can benefit. I wish programmes like this had been around when I was a kid".
Leroy Cudjoe, Huddersfield Giants & England RL:
"Rugrats Rugby is a great idea to get children socialising together and playing sport from such a young age. It teaches children discipline and encourages them to exercise as well as learning to play together"
Adrian Vowles, Man of Steel winner ex- Castleford, Leeds and Wakefield:
"Rugrats Rugby is a truly great concept that teaches young children to develop their gross motor skills. This gets them active as well as benefiting them in life. I have always encouraged my children from a young age to do similar things as this fantastic programme does and I encourage you to do the same with your children".
Michael Mcilorum, Wigan Warriors & England RL:
"An excellent idea to get young children playing sport, having fun, socialising and learning skills. I believe the Rugrats Rugby programme is an excellent way to develop the future generation of players making our grassroots game stronger as children will have a stronger understanding of the fundamental skills when joining a club. This programme has my full backing".
Keegan Smith, Sydney Roosters, Head of Strength, Conditioning & Nutrition (www.keegansh.com)
”In a world of increasing childhood diebetes and obesity helping kids be active and learn about how to treat their bodies is prehaps the greatest present a child could receive. Rugrats Rugby is a great way for kids to learn how to use their bodies and have fun!”
Chris Thorman, Assistant Coach Huddersfield Giants former player with London, Parramatta, Huddersfield & Hull
"Rugrats Rugby is a great way to improve a child's core motor skills, but at the same time teach them the fundamentals of rugby while interacting in a social situation. Learning new things and most importantly having fun is part and parcel of Rugrats Rugby and can only enhance the development of a child. I fully endorse the great work they do!"
