Young­sters have a ball at Lit­tle Rugby

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT -

LIT­TLE Rugby kicked into Emerton Leisure Cen­tre last week­end, of­fer­ing a ball of fun for kids as young as two.

The pro­gram has been run­ning in Emerton for the past three years and of­fers rugby skills classes for chil­dren aged two to seven. Lit­tle Rugby’s owner Jodi Jo­hann said the sport was all about de­vel­op­ing kids’ con­fi­dence.

“Lit­tle Rugby is not just about rugby skills — it is also about teach­ing confi- dence, self es­teem, co-or­di­na­tion and mostly how to have fun.” Mrs Jo­hann said. “This is a non-con­tact sport, which is heav­ily based around both rugby and AFL, but we also teach team­work and shar­ing to the kids.”.

Term one of Lit­tle Rugby starts on Satur­day, with Ju­nior Rugby ages 2-3 at 9am and Mighty Rugby ages 3-5 at 10am. For more in­for­ma­tion call 8604 9329 or visit Lit­tle Rugby Black­town on Face­book.
