A schools programme has been set up with a number of primary schools already signed up. This will see current first team players attending schools to provide sports coaching and promoting rugby’s core values to a wider audience.
Feedback from the schools has been extremely positive:
“Eoghan and the rest of the team have been great! They have been very approachable with staff and have already built great relationships with the children at our school. Eoghan is very knowledgable and has passed a wealth of information on to our children – especially with our gifted and talented club. Having athletes in our school has really raised the aspirations of our children! We are really happy with the way things are going.” Chaddlewood Primary School
“Everything has gone well. The children are really enjoying their PE lessons and after school club.” Victoria Road Primary School
We are also working closely with Babcock to promote the STEM agenda in schools and at other events in and around the city. First team players are acting as STEM ambassadors in and around the city.
