Andy Fox – didi rugby Coventry and Warwickshire

Hi my name is Andy Fox. I’m currently a kids rugby coach based in Warwickshire. I have two boys aged 12 and 8 who play both rugby union and league locally. As well as coaching young children, I am also Chairman of a large Mini & Junior section for a local club responsible for over 400 children aged U6-U16 and 70 adult coaches. I have a passion for encouraging young children into sport and using the tool of rugby to create fun, engaging activities to enhance a child’s learning, confidence and improve their coordination, speed and balance.

Michelle Higgs – didi rugby Walsall

I have played rugby for over a decade with a break in the middle of that spell to have my daughter and am now in my seventh year at Handsworth Rugby Club.

Rugby is a massive part of my life. My son started playing five years ago and plays for the Colts team at Veseyans RFC. While watching him train one day, I was asked if I would coach a brand new girls team at the club and we are now in our fifth year.

That is where my love of coaching began and I have now also started coaching an older girls team at Erdington RFC, where I am also a first aider and safeguarding officer.

I have already been teaching didi rugby classes in Stone and Stafford before deciding to open didi rugby Walsall so I am fully aware of the benefits our sessions have on children.

I just love teaching the classes because they are so much fun running around with younger children. They always impress me and amaze me with how quickly they can pick stuff up and become so good at it.

I have come across quite a lot of cheeky personalities too and they make me laugh which makes the whole session so much more enjoyable. The kids love it and so do I.

I have always been someone that has loved participating in helping children or children’s activities, so starting up my own classes is something I am very much looking forward to.

Alex Matthews – didi rugby Worcester

World Cup winner Worcester Women’s Rugby star Alex Matthews has joined the didi rugby Worcester team.

Alex has been part of the England XVs and Sevens set-up for almost a decade now but had her world thrown upside down when the England Sevens set-up became a casualty of recent coronavirus-related cuts by the Rugby Union (RFU).

Determined to ‘give something back’ to the sport that had made her what she is today, Alex, who has already done some work with didi rugby Reading, began speaking to didi rugby CEO Vicky Macqueen after signing for the Warriors in the Women’s Premier XVs this season.

A partnership was formed and didi rugby Worcester was born to get young children aged 18 months to 6 years playing rugby, learning new skills and having fun.

Alex Matthews says…

“Facing a new future, I wanted to make sure that I am doing something that I have passion for and then didi rugby came along.”

“I have already seen the power of didi rugby and the kids learn so much from it, without even knowing about it. It gets them active and they always have fun. It’s a tremendously well-run and well-organised programme at didi and I am really looking forward to getting involved.”

Vicky Macqueen added: “It’s just amazing to have Alex involved in this launch.”
