About Beetles/Grasshoppers

A combined age class covering the motor skill development of the BEETLES & GRASSHOPPER classes.

During the session the trained coaches will follow the RUGGERBUGS programme ensuring that your child participates in age-appropriate activities.

This normally involves dividing the children into different age groups.

Your Child will now be developing “buckets” of confidence and self-esteem and will be autonomous in completing the rugby inspired activities on their own or as part of a group with the support and guidance of trained coaches.

Parents can now take a well-earned rest on the side-lines but always on hand to provide a bit of support and encouragement when needed.

For Year R children basic motor skills are now enhanced with more demanding rugby inspired skills, drills and games sequences further developing your / a child’s co-ordination, body awareness, controlled movement, and spatial awareness.

The basics of Tag Rugby and core values of rugby are now gently introduced with the emphasis of FUN still very much at the heart of the session.

For Year 1 children the focus is very much on FUN with more exacting skills, drills, and games to benefit the maturing child and bring together all the elements of the programme and their learning before they GRADUATE.

Your child will continue to build on their physical, social, and cognitive development and gain more understanding of the basic concepts of rugby through evasion games where they and learn how to TAG and play as part of a small team.

They continue to apply what they have learnt to perform activities through planning and evaluation of their actions to understand and improve their performance in order that they can move into U7’s mini rugby with ease and put into practice what they have learnt.

At the end of July (final session) your child’s achievements are celebrated with a GRADUATION ceremony.
