Growing Grassroots Rugby Virtually

The Harlequins Foundation are excited to be taking Rugby online, teaching hundreds of local young people about the game and it’s values, thanks to support for ‘Project Rugby’ from Premiership Rugby and Gallagher.

Project Rugby is a joint initiative between Premiership Rugby clubs and Gallagher, which is designed to introduce the game to new audiences that have been traditionally underrepresented in the past – including; Black, Asian and other Ethnic Minorities, people from lower socio-economic backgrounds and people with disabilities.

Our coaches are working closely with a network of partner secondary schools throughout Hounslow, Richmond and Kingston, to support them in keeping young people engaged with sports and physical activity as well as developing essential skills such as; Teamwork, Leadership, Staying Positive, and Problem-Solving, thanks to our Skills Builder Coaching Toolkit.

"Thanks Sir, this is the best online PE lesson we have had this term."
