What is Rugby Pups?

Our renowned, certified and DBS checked coaches work with children aged 2 -11 to encourage a natural enjoyment of physical activity, implementing healthy habits for later life and ensuring that kids associate exercise with fun activities.
Age-appropriate, rugby-based activities promote health and exercise and develop vital early life-skills such as co-ordination, confidence and teamwork.

We offer after school sessions at various primary schools in the area – please visit our Booking Page to book into a club offered at your school. We also host a range of Saturday Sessions, with time allocated to each age group.


We offer schools the opportunity to hire our coaches for themed rugby fun and fitness weeks, which work to promote fitness and healthy living habits throughout every year group.


We also offer private parties for birthday’s special occasions and family fun days – these include 90 minutes of fun activities for children, gifts for the birthday child, a pre-packaged pass-the-parcel game and stickers for every child attending.
