Coventry Rugby has a strong, active and vibrant Community Department. A pivotal part of the Club and it’s role as an ambassador to our wider audience of children, schools and youth organisations.
- Breakfast Clubs
‘Wake up rugby games’ for pupils. These games are designed for pupils to prepare for lessons using hand eye co-ordination skills.
- Lunch time Clubs
Pupils play organised games during their lunch time break supervised by the coach. This is to help with social behaviour amongst the children.
- After school Clubs
‘All sports’ clubs that coach pupils straight after school for an hour. After school clubs are a very popular choice with many schools in the area.
- PPA Cover
Community Rugby coaches go into schools to cover this time by coaching PE lessons. We also work closely with school staff to mentor teachers through delivering these lessons. Coventry Community Rugby combines PPA cover with clubs whether that be lunch time or after school.
- Specialised Coaching
Coaching rugby at an in-depth level, focusing on the skill acquisition of players and unit groups. This coaching is designed to help schools achieve a high success in performance.
- Reward Days
Schools come to the Butts Park Arena to use our state of the art PFS centre and engage in fun sporting activity. Can be a whole day or either a morning or afternoon.
- Stadium Tours
Groups of children come to the BPA to have a tour around the stadium with tasks in the PFS centre.
- CashBack Scheme
Schools and organisations can join our CashBack scheme where they will have the facility to sell match day tickets and earn either money back or hours in coaching
