Quilter Kids First U12 opening session for 2018/19 season

Ex nihilo nihil fit

"Nothing comes from nothing"

To coincide with the launch of this season's RFU's Quilter Kids First sponsorship approach, the U12s held their first player-centred training session at Lime Meadow Avenue.

Quilter Kids First puts children first. Aimed at U7-U13 boys and girls, it upskills coaches and creates a great rugby environment, so that everyone stays in the game for longer. The Old Mids have taken the pledge which commits to

  1. Put children at the heart of everything we do and all decisions we make.
  2. Encourage fun on the pitch, through equal opportunity and realistic expectations of our children.
  3. Develop children’s confidence and character as players and as people, challenging any behaviour that conflicts with this.
  4. Build the skills of our adults to provide a safe, healthy, respectful and enjoyable environment for children.
  5. Champion rugby’s Core Values, inspiring a lifelong bond between children, adults and our sport.

This week's skill zone was learning to kick: drop, punt and grubber

Joseph, Nathaniel and Jake self-organised the skills zone to practice kicking and then this was transferred into a series of progressive game based sessions. By the final game, the boys were able to evaluate and adapt during the game, having learnt when to pass or kick; and where and what type of kick to use.

The Old Mids U12 train on Sundays 1030-12pm. All abilities are welcome, from beginner to experienced player.
