About Little Scrummers Rugby
Founding Statement: We want to bring rugby to children at a young age to enable them to build their confidence, enjoy sport and have fun
Little Scrummers Rugby Story
Little Scrummers Rugby was set up in 2009 after looking around for an activity that our rugby mad three year old could take part in. We found something, went along and realised it was not for us, but we could set something up ourselves that would offer more of the ‘rugby’ experience we were looking for. And so Little Scrummers began!
Mission Statement & Company Values
- To engage children in rugby - in mind, body and spirit
- To inspire moments of greatness - through our classes and as a family
- To create value and make a difference everywhere we engage
Little Scrummers Rugby Values:
Our shared values that we are guided by are:
- By encouraging children to live a healthy and active lifestyle from a young age childhood obesity will become something of the past.
As a business we are passionate about delivering a fun, rich & exciting programme of rugby based games for Children 18months - 7yrs old.
We are insured to take children from 18months, but feel it is very important not to go by age, but by ability and steadiness on their feet. Starting a child too early and when they are not ready will only impede their love of sport and the game of rugby.
Fun and Excitement are central to our classes!
We like to encourage families to attend our sessions, and believe that rugby is a family sport and can be enjoyed by everyone, from playing, to coaching to watching from the sidelines. Grandparents love to come along and watch their grandchildren enjoy the classes.
Our classes provide somewhere where the coaches are passionate about rugby, believe in the family values of rugby and are committed to encouraging children to find their passion.
From Richard, January 2017 "...I cannot praise enough the work of the Harlow team for Little Scrummers. All the coaches have been phenomenal with Noah who has Autism. They've allowed him to be himself and join in as much or as little as he wants, and the sessions have been really fun and constructive. Thank you to all the coaches..."
From Suneet, January 2017 “The classes are great!! Zachary has enjoyed the sessions and the coaches are amazing! They both take time to make sure that the kids are understanding the tasks and teach them how to do them properly. We definitely made the right choice in joining!...”
From Charlotte, January 2017 “Shane looks forward to rugby all week and gets very excited to get his kit on. Shane is a very energetic little boy so the class has really helped him. It also helps with his listening and understanding. At first Shane just wanted to run around and not join in, however he now loves playing the games and making friends. We love little scrummers!!...”
