Girls Rugby Sportivate Project

Sports Development is now run by Freedom Leisure.  You can contact Julia Kendrick on  

Girls aged 11 upwards were targeted for this project from 3 different high schools.   Each school were given five weeks’ worth of rugby coaching by coaches from Staffordshire RFU and were then all invited to a tournament on the sixth session.

The tournament was held at Stafford Rugby Club and representatives from the club were present to provide details on the girls coaching sessions that they run so that players from this project can feed in if they wish to continue playing. The tournament was also attended by Senior England Woman’s International player, Natasha Hunt, who helped to inspire the girls and encouraged them to continue participating.
