Kerri Arlando Head Coach – didi Rugby Grantham

A few words from Kerri

“I am currently the Club Safeguarding Officer and assistant coach for the U11s at Kesteven Rugby Club. I believe whole-heartedly in keeping kids active not just to promote healthy bodies, but to nourish young minds as well and this is why I decided to join didi rugby and set up did rugby Grantham.”

“I have two wonderful boys who are both Rugby mad and as they have grown older, rugby is very much central to our lives. As well as Safeguarding and Coaching, I started playing for Kesteven Ladies when the club decided to form a ladies team in November 2017. I love playing this game, and I’m still kicking myself that I didn’t start sooner!”

“Before we moved to Grantham, my husband’s job took us first to Doha and then Dubai. During our time in the Middle East, I set up a Children’s Library, taught baby signing and was part of the PTA.”

“I also have a BSc in Sociology from Loughborough University.”
