About Grasshoppers

Grasshoppers (Year 1 Children) Run, Clap, Tag and Pass!

GRASSHOPPERS is the peak of your child’s RUGGERBUGS journey as they head towards Year 2 at school.

The focus is still 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 where they receive a rugbytastic certificate and sticker – how great would this be for “Show and Tell” at school or to show their new rugby coach?

At the end of each session your Child will receive a weekly Sidney Sticker to collect and stick on their Sidney Sticker Chart.

Please note there are different memberships available which can be discussed on booking.
