Edrington Community Rugby Engagement Program
The Edrington Rugby Programme is a district-based engagement project with youth aged 10 to 16 invited from local schools and NGOs serving underprivileged communities across 5 different districts.
The activities are co-organized by the rugby clubs in their districts in partnership with Rugby for Good.
The participants will join Fun Days, Trial Sessions, and Regular Club training which will feature interactive and dynamic coach-led rugby skills and values sessions. The programme opens a pathway towards long-term training for participants to continue their personal and rugby development through the local clubs.
