  • About Minis

    Minis is a key step to Rugby success with Rugby Stars and is ideal for boys and girls aged 3.5 to 5 years.

    We aim to deliver sessions that teach rugby values, knowledge, understanding and application of rugby skills through a series of structured activities and games that are centred around developing a sense of passion and love for the sport.

    Throughout classes, which are designed and tailored specifically for children aged 3 to 5 years, we introduce new Rugby skills and accelerate prior learning from Micros through various learning strategies that are key to all round development.

    We explore greater challenges whilst keeping a focus on learning through play. Children are encouraged to become more independent as parents observe their children and support where needed.
