rugby carmarthenshire leisure centres

actif rugbySuitable for all ages and abilities, rugby can be played both socially and competitively. People of all ages and abilities can get involved in rugby through clinics and modified rules games. Although rugby is a contact sport, the practice of tackling is usually only introduced to appropriate age groups. Children and younger players are introduced to rugby gradually, through more modified and non-contact versions of the sport. While playing rugby generally requires strength and agility, particular positions require specific additional skills such as jumping and precision kicking. Rugby involves sprinting, tackling, pushing and kicking.

Health benefits include; cardiovascular fitness and endurance; strength in upper and lower body; agility; speed; ball-handling and kicking skills.

Rugby is being introduced to children from an early age as a fun and exciting activity for both girls and boys of all ages and abilities. The natural progression through the ranks to full competitive matches at junior youth and adult levels is producing the national stars of the game. The pathway offers a progressive way of introducing the game to young players and developing coaches. At the same time it aims to capture the magic of the game and deliver a game that is fun to play, enjoyable and stimulating to coach and promotes open running rugby the hallmark of Welsh Rugby.
