About Ladybirds/Beetles/Grasshoppers

A combined age class covering the motor skill development of the LADYBIRDS, 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 appropriate-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.

Children 3.6 years to school age basic motor skills are now enhanced with more challenging rugby inspired skills, drills, and games and your child is given will continue to further develop their “skills4life” communication and listening skills when completing the activities based around balance, agility and co-ordination, speed, and strength.

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.

As your child progress through the RUGGERBUGS “Head Start” Programme they will achieve “SIDNEY SKILL AWARDS” in line with the programme structure and criteria.

These will be assessed and monitored at the end of each term and allow a smooth transition into the next class when your child is ready.

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

Children coming to the end of school Year 1 will GRADUATE at end of July (final session) with a ceremony celebrating their achievements.
