TryRugby Kids Pathway – U6 to U12

Aim and philosophy of the TryRugby Kids Pathway

The aim of the TryRugby Kids Pathway for U6 to U12 players is to provide a series of age-specific modified rugby games. These modified rugby games progressively develop the individual skills, fitness and team work of all players in accordance with their physical maturity and understanding of the game.

  • Increase activity levels for maximum participation and enjoyment.
  • Meet the developmental needs of young Rugby players in line with the safety focus of the modern game.
  • Provide an integrated and consistent approach to the development of U6 to U12 players, coaches and referees across the country.
