Passion, love, heart. That is what we think when we hear of rugby. At Munchkin Sports, we want to instil these values in your children by teaching them the fundamentals of rugby.
A physically and mentally taxing sport, rugby requires discipline and teamwork as much as skill and enthusiasm. Munchkin Sports gently introduces the sport through child-friendly classes. All our kids’ rugby lessons in Croydon are non-contact and are suitable for both boys and girls.
2 to 3-Year-Old Classes
The youngest rugby classes we offer are for 2 to 3-year-old children. In this early and very formative stage, we emphasise on rudimentary physical skills and basic rugby rules. We also use colour-coded mini rugby balls that ensure that their still-developing senses are engaged, while they go through our interactive pod games such as scories tried, kick the ball over the posts and tackling using tackle bags.
3 to 4-Year-Old Classes
As the next level in our rugby classes, we focus on rugby-specific drills for the 3 to 4-year-old classes. They will be learning touch rugby, side-stepping and other skills through timed team events. As such, we will also be encouraging healthy competition among the munchkins to make them feel a little more grown-up. The children will still be using mini rugby balls to help with their hand-eye coordination.
4 to 7-Year-Old Classes
The top-level rugby classes for kids will be composed of tag rugby and other non-contact drills to further skills they have learnt in previous lessons. Improving their social skills is also a part of these lessons, as well as promoting healthy competitiveness among the children. We will help them identify space and coordinate with their teammates – two mental skills that will help them play the sport well and navigate life’s twists and turns.
Parents are encouraged to participate in giving your child more confidence while they are playing with other kids.
