Rugby is challenging sport but you’re never too young to start. Munchkin Sports offers rugby classes in Keston for children aged 2 to 7. From learning basic rugby skills to preparing for a mini-rugby game, our rugby munchkin classes take your child on a fun and interactive journey. Our classes aim to encourage social skills by boosting your child’s confidence and well-being.
All our rugby munchkin classes are non-contact and suitable for both boys and girls. At Munchkin Sports, we bring different elements to our rugby classes that are not used in a typical rugby game. Our classes are aided by music, colour and numbers for your child to have fun developing their rugby and core motor skills.
Fun Rugby Classes for Kids
Our classes have a coach that helps each munchkin get the most from every lesson. We welcome parents to help us encourage the munchkins to learn and have fun. Our rugby classes are divided into three age groups:
2 to 3 Years Old
We introduce the youngest munchkins to basic rugby skills such as the proper way to hold the ball with two hands and developing agility, balance and hand-eye coordination. We also develop the munchkins’ social skills and teamwork through our fun team games. We play team games such as taking turns to kick the ball over posts, scoring tries and using tackle bags. For this age group, we highly encourage parent participation.
3 to 4 Years Old
The next stage in our classes focuses on more rugby-specific drills such as touch rugby, sidestepping and timed team activities. Our classes for 3 to 4-year-olds use colour-coded mini rugby balls to further develop hand-eye coordination. We also encourage parents to participate in this class, but they are not expected to join the game.
4 to 7 Years Old
When the munchkins reach this class, we look to further develop their core skills. We introduce tag rugby, a non-contact rugby game that is suitable for the munchkins to hone their communication skills and proactiveness during the game.
