Not at all. We will start them off slowly and build up their skills and confidence at a pace which suits them.

Didi Rugby sessions last 40 minutes and your membership entitles you to one class a week.

Yes it is. Please find your nearest class and contact them to arrange a suitable time and date for your son or daughter to attend.

It is actually an indoor activity, making it suitable to run all year round. When we do get better weather, we take the opportunity to take the children outside for the sessions or parts of the session, whenever we can.

Yes there is. If you have more than one child at didi Rugby, you are entitled to a sibling discount, across all areas which is usually between 10-15%.

Yes, there is parking at all our venues and franchise holders will be able to give you more detail on each particular venue.

Yes absolutely. 18 months is just a guide to ensure all children are steady on their feet. As soon as this is the case, they are very welcome to come along and join in.

Yes you can. We strongly believe in personal development and building each child’s confidence that come through one of our classes. Our relationship with the parent(s) is crucial in trying to make that happen.

We want to encourage active, confident and skilful children and promote a healthy lifestyle. We want to create a happy and fun environment for children, parents and carers and develop good habits in those who attend.

We build links with local clubs that we trust and we encourage parents and children to join the ‘minis’ section of those clubs if they want to continue playing rugby, which usually start at the under-7 age group, where they will move in to playing tag rugby. If your child came to didi rugby a bit later, and wasn’t ready to make the transition, they would be welcome to stay with didi rugby for a bit longer to gain more confidence.

We aim to build confidence and character in your child and instill values that will benefit them through life. We want to improve their balance and co-ordination and teach children about team work and sportsmanship, while having fun at the same time. This is all wrapped up and delivered through the tool of rugby.

Any shorts, tee-shirt and a pair of comfortable trainer-type shoes would be ideal. We have didi Rugby branded kit if you wanted to buy some from our online shop at http://shop.didirugby.com/
