didi rugby Sandbach and Holmes Chapel became the newest edition to the didi rugby family at the weekend. All of their didi stars had an amazing time in the sun!

Expanding their regular didi Stafford and Stone classes, Ros Wiggins and the rest of the team have launched brand new classes in Sandbach.

Three of their regular coaches, along with four new Sandbach coaches attended the launch. They had plenty of staff to welcome over 40 didi stars for two hours of didi rugby activities at Sandbach RUFC!

Their sessions ran in parallel, with three groups of didi stars taking part in their coach’s warm-up, skills and games zones. They provided free play obstacle courses for families to have a go on and extend their time at the event.

“We had some amazing feedback from parents and carers (and the didi stars, some of whom just didn’t want to leave!)” says Ros.

“This gave a real boost to our coaches as they rehydrated and put on some more sun cream at the half-way mark.

“Everyone left the sessions with their didi smiles on, having had lots of fun in the sun!

“The club and director of rugby Andy Bird, have been really supportive and they can see the benefits of starting rugby coaching early on in children’s lives,” said Ros.

“Their junior set-up is already huge and very impressive, so I am delighted that they are keen to include didi rugby in their integrated club structure.

Sandbach RUFC have been very welcoming and have told me they are keen to extend the family feel around their club to include youngsters of didi age, so they can get involved in having fun while their elder siblings play for the mini age-groups teams.

“When we are up and running at the club, we will be looking to expand into the schools and nurseries in the Sandbach area too.”
