Choosing the right course for your child

You and your child have one easy choice to make…
Would you like the course to involve non-contact rugby, or would you like the course to teach safe tackling skills at an easy-to-understand pace, dependent on your child’s age.

In both streams the coach will teach a new core skill each week, the kids will practice it with a drill, and then play a structured game to use the new skill in a match scenario.

1. RugbyRoos Non-Contact course

Non-contact RugbyRoos is offered to all age ranges.

It’s designed to introduce kids to rugby without the need to immediately begin tackling.

Basic skills learnt are:

  • Balance and Stability
  • Catch Pass
  • Track to Tag
  • Ball Carry

RugbyRoos offers the non-contact format to kids who are completely new to rugby or who simply prefer play the non-contact version, however, kids are strongly encouraged to participate in the transition-to-tackle course and learn the importance of safe tackling.

2. RugbyRoos Transition to Tackle course

Transition to Tackle is only offered to children aged 8yrs and above.

It’s designed to teach kids how to tackle safely in an environment that ensures they understand the fundamentals of where and how to tackle before moving to the next stages of skill development.

Basic skills learnt are:

  • Balance and Stability
  • Catch Pass
  • Track to Tag and then Track to Tackle
  • Ball Carry and then Breakdown

RugbyRoos introduces children to rugby in either a non-contact format, or through our specialised ‘introduction to safe tackling’ course.

Whichever course you choose, your child’s safety is monitored at all times.
