Sixth Form Colleges play a very important role in creating pathways for students to maintain physical activity and participate in sports. Shelford Rugby Clubs Supporting Schools Programs can be tailored to suit individual colleges’ requirements, with delivery outcomes aligning with the English Rugby Football Union’s age grade rugby regulations. We believe in player focused, empowering coaching that nurtures students love of the game and allows them to develop appropriately for their age and ability. With our holistic approach to sports coaching we aim to develop the person as well as the player, by creating a positive environment that encourages autonomy and produces a sense of belonging, while improving the students’ competence.
