Teaching Young Children The Very First Skills Of Rugby

Rugby Nippers

Perthshire’s exciting rugby programme for girls and boys from 2 to 7 year old

Rugby Nippers teaches young children the very first skills of rugby in a fun, safe environment.

We use the fundamental ABCs of physical activity – Agility, Balance and Coordination – whilst developing social skills such as listening, teamwork, and following instructions. Our coaches are fully qualified, first aid trained, and experienced, and each class is designed to help your child learn to work as a team, make new friends and develop new skills throughout the course.

Starting at 2 years of age helps your child get a head start in the sport, crucial for establishing an ongoing enjoyment of the game or even a career in the sport!


We are starting classes in Auchterarder and Perth!

Rugby Nippers is running after school sessions in Perthshire, offering children the opportunity to play more rugby helping to supplement their learning in the sport.

We focus on handling, running, team work and continuity of game play, all provided in small groups. These smaller groups allow us to focus on development of all rugby skills. After school classes give parents the opportunity to burn some of their nipper’s energy at the end of the school day ready for home time.

If they are not already involved, Rugby Nippers also partners with local sports clubs to help nippers move on to their next rugby environment.
