Didi Rugby

Get young children active and to teach them new skills while having fun in a safe environment at didi Rugby classes designed by former England Women’s international Vicky Macqueen.

Choose from three age groups...

didi Minis (aged 18 months- 36 months)

This age group will be taught the basic components of fitness in terms of balance, co-ordination, speed and strength using rugby to deliver these skills, with play and fun at the heart of everything we do.

didi Mini is also an educational experience where children focus on learning more about things like colours, numbers and body parts while they are playing.

Children take part in active and fun-filled sessions which encourage positivity, team play, respect and sportsmanship. Instilling these values early on in life has proven to enhance our future sportsmen and women and encourage a life-long participation in physical activity.

At this age group, parents and carers are required to engage with and support their child and to encourage them to take part in activities which will give them a great start to life in the didi family.

didi Juniors (aged 3 - 4 years)
The didi Juniors program fills the gap between toddler play and school-age games.

We will aim to further develop the basic components of fitness in terms of balance, coordination, speed and strength using play and rugby as the tools to deliver these skills.

Alongside the plan to develop the children’s rugby skills, didi Juniors continues to have an educational theme throughout. Kids will be furthering their number learning, sequencing, understanding of rules and starting to understand concepts of play.

They feature skill and game-based sessions that will ultimately lead them to take part in other game activities, some rugby-based, where hand-eye coordination, speed, balance and core skills are required.

At this age group, parents and carers are asked to watch from the side encouraging their child and getting involved if they need support.

didi Seniors (aged 4 - 6 years)
The final stage of the didi rugby experience is based around the idea that when children leave us at the age of six, their all-round understanding of the game is good enough to move seamlessly into club rugby with an under-7s side.

didi Seniors encourages small-sided games that further build on the basic components of fitness, but also enhance the understanding of the basic concepts of rugby.

Small-sided games teach your child to make decisions about where and when to pass, how to play with their team-mates and begin to show and understand that practice is required to improve individual ability.

Children are taught skills and we are also keen to help them understand why and how they use these skills within a game situation. We will use tag rugby belts to enable an easier transition to under-7s rugby.

The didi Senior program is an educational package that teaches rugby skills, while incorporating learning through play.

At this age group, parents and carers are encouraged to stay and sit on the side to watch and support their child in the session.

Whatever their age group, in every session, there are two coaches ensuring that each child receives some one-to-one tuition and to ensure that even the shiest child feels a part of the friendly team.
