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!

Rugby Nippers Update

Unfortunately we are still unable to run our 2-5 year old sessions as almost all the community halls aren't open. They are all voluntary organisations and they seem to be a bit more apprehensive around the current situation which is understandable.
We can, however, start running our after school programme (P1 and P2) from the 10th Perthshire Scout Hut Perth Academy this will be on a Friday at 3.30 to 4.15 and potentially 4.15 to 5pm depending on demand....Woohoo! We'll make the blocks shorter so if there is another lockdown on sport programmes there isn't a lot of money outstanding. This will start after the October break.
