Rugby

Rugby is a free-flowing game that features a combination of strength, speed, and strategy to move a ball into an opponents territory. Rugby has developed to include many different forms of the game: touch, union, league, seven-a-side and has evolved from football (i.e. soccer) often labelled the ‘game played in heaven’.

Age Grade Rugby

The RFU have made significant changes to how rugby should be coached and played in schools. Please read the following document for more information.

*Before entering this event, please ensure that you can definitely attend by checking with all departments and your Headteacher. Late withdrawals have a detrimental impact on the quality of the event and therefore the experience of the children so we very much appreciate your support in ensuring this does not happen.

Information

Included in this festival are two separate tournaments, a touch rugby competition, and a contact rugby competition. If you wish to enter a team in both tournaments, you must enter two separate entry forms, specifying in both which competition you intend to enter. There will also be opportunities to receive coaching masterclasses from elite professionals and many other exciting opportunities for your pupils. Both tournaments welcome mixed gender teams.

Rules & Regulations

For the contact competition, we will be using the new Age Grady Rugby rules and RFU regulations for Under 10s. If you would like more information of these, they can be found here.

For the touch rugby tournament, we will be using the O2 Touch rules (except we will be running an 8 a-side format) that can be found by clicking here.

If you are unsure of any rules, please do get in touch.
