Try Tag Rugby launches first junior programme in Brighton & Hove

Try Tag Rugby launches first junior programme in Brighton & Hove

RFL partner, Try Tag Rugby, has announced it’s to pilot a junior programme in Brighton & Hove this spring.

After 15 years growing the game UK wide to the point where over 10,000 adults participated weekly last summer, the launch of Try Tag Rugby Juniors is an exciting development in the growth of the social variant throughout the UK.

Like Try Tag Rugby’s adult offering, junior programmes of leagues, after school clubs and holiday camps will focus on convenience, fun and friendships. With safety, teamwork, social interaction and participation taking precedence over serious competition, the sessions will offer an accessible sport to children of all sporting abilities and backgrounds.

Alistair Davis, Try Tag Rugby co-founder, says:

“The launch of our first junior program in Brighton & Hove is a pivotal moment for us. Significant time has been spent planning and researching our junior Tag Rugby League offerings, and we can’t wait to see the smiles on the faces of Brighton’s children this spring as they get their first experience of Try Tag Rugby”.

Steph McCabe, Brighton adults and juniors license holder, adds:

“I’m thrilled to see Try Tag Rugby extend its offerings to young players in our community. This pilot program marks the beginning of an exciting journey to get more children active and enjoying team sport. I’m looking forward to introducing many more young people to Tag Rugby League and witnessing the positive impact it will have on the next generation.”

Launching juniors in Brighton is just the start, Try Tag Rugby are on the lookout for additional pilot licensees to launch Try Tag Rugby juniors in other parts of the UK.

If you are a passionate Tag Rugby League advocate who enjoys working with children we’d like to hear from you. You should be a fearless self-starter with the drive and discipline to market our offerings to parents and children in your local area.
