On Thursday 19th August our 8th Pathway To Rugby program will be kicking off, introducing our amazing game to those who have never played before.
Over the rest of this year the program meets twice a week to build up the skills and knowledge needed to be able to join our regular squads. The course involves a touch rugby tournament, first tour to Edinburgh in October and culminates in their first ever full game of rugby in December.
Over the 7 years we have been running the program we have seen the impact team sport has had on the physical and mental health of those who previously thought rugby was not for them.
Former Pathway member Stephen Fox who is one of our Pathway Officers this year said about the course "Everybody is so friendly and welcoming, when I first joined I was just accepted and taken in like one of the brothers, it's really brought my confidence up a lot."
This year we are so proud to be offering this course to women and non-binary players who identify with the women's game for the first time. As part of our ongoing partnership with the East London Vixens it helps us truly deliver rugby for all and ensure we grow both our great squads.
Whilst general signup for the men's squad is full and closed we are still welcoming those who want to sign up for the women's group. We know this will be a hugely successful year, full of a lot of fun and we want you to be a part of it.
If you are a women or non-binary person wanting to play women's rugby then please email email@example.com for details and to register.
