The Leeds Rugby Foundation works in partnership with the Leeds & Hunslet Schools to deliver a 6 week program in over 60 Primary Schools per year. This involves a rugby festival, a 4 week coaching block and also an assembly based on 'Creating a Winning Team' or 'Healthy Lifestyles'.
The coaching programme gives the children the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of rugby, grow in confidence and have fun! At the end of the 4 week coaching program the schools are then invited to play in a festival against fellow schools at an amateur club setting. This is a great way to see the students showcase their skills they have learnt and also for them to see how they might progress to an amateur club.
Each year over 1,800 children participate in this coaching program and over 18,000 pupils take part in the extremely popular assemblies that involve a very close friend of the Leeds Rugby Foundation - Ronnie the Rhino.
