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 are really excited to be running another Summer camp for nippers in Perthshire, half days and full days available! Taking place on the last week of July  (Monday 29 th July to Friday 2nd August ) to keep your nippers active and entertained!

All boys and girls 4 to 7 years old are welcome.

We play a variety of fun based rugby games throughout the day over a 5 day Summer camp of rugby madness.

Incorporating key skills including passing and catching, tag rugby and tag games, continuity of play, agility, coordination and team work. Our session will also include instruction of another form of sport as, we believe, different sports develop individual key skills for an 'all rounded' approach to fitness and sport appreciation.
