They start off like this.
Under 6's aged between 3 and 5, Playing fun games on a Sunday morning. Nothing serious, but training them up, so that when they reach their 6th Birthday, they can play Tag Rugby matches with the Under 7's
And move onto this,
At Under 7 and 8 they play Tag Rugby (No Tackling and minimal contact). This teaches them to run forwards with the ball, and also to handle well. Encouraging the kids to pass the ball instead of running sideways.
Eventually getting to this
By the time they're Under 9 and 10, they're looking like this. They're into full contact, with Tackling, Scrums and Line-Outs, Rucking and Mauling. It's a proper game of rugby, and they're starting to work as a team.
Playing rugby with West Leeds teaches kids about Friendship, Teamwork and Discipline.
Mini Rugby runs up to Under 12's. When the kids reach Under 13's, they move onto Junior Rugby, and start playing on the full pitch! More details of Junior Rugby Here.
