Aim and philosophy of the Kids Pathway

The aim of the Kids Pathway for U6 to U12 players is to provide a series of age-specific modified rugby games. These modified rugby games progressively develop the individual skills, fitness and team work of all players in accordance with their physical maturity and understanding of the game.

The philosophy is child-centred and ensures all players receive the greatest possible participation and enjoyment from playing the game of Rugby.


What are the benefits?

The Kids Pathway for U6 to U12 players has been developed to:

  • Increase activity levels for maximum participation and enjoyment.

  • Meet the developmental needs of young Rugby players in line with the safety focus of the modern game.

  • Provide an integrated and consistent approach to the development of U6 to U12 players, coaches and referees across the country.
