1.       Old Mutual Wealth Kids First Rugby?  Old Mutual Wealth Kids First http://www.englandrugby.com/my-rugby/players/kids-first-rugby/#page2 is our new approach to rugby at U7-U13 at clubs and schools across the county.


It’s all about helping children develop and learn the game at their own pace, and making sure they have plenty of fun while playing.


We’re asking rugby centres across the country to take the pledge to commit to a range of high quality standards.


We are asking clubs and schools to commit to;

· Put children at the heart of everything we do and all decisions we make.
· Encourage fun on the pitch, through equal opportunity and realistic expectations of our children.
· Develop children’s confidence and character as players and as people, challenging any behavior that conflicts with this.
· Build the skills of our adults to provide a safe, healthy, respectful and enjoyable environment for children.
· Champion rugby’s Core Values, inspiring a lifelong bond between children, adults and our sport.
