Welsh Rugby Union (WRU)

The Benefits of Rugby in YHF

Through rugby, students can learn how to communicate new ideas, use communication to address problems collectively as a team, and listen to other individuals as part of a group. Rugby is a great enabler in breaking down social barriers that some of the pupils may face.

The after-school rugby club allows pupils to gain important social skills as well as improve their mental and physical health in a safe and fun environment.

What we do

The main focus of after school rugby club is fun and enjoyment for all pupils. We often play a mix of rugby-style evasion games that help to improve pupils’ spatial awareness and overall fitness.

We also focus on improving pupils’ coordination and problem-solving skills by doing fun rugby drills that make pupils think whilst being in a game situation.
