Gateway Rugby

Due to the ongoing success of the 'Tony Brown Gateway Rugby' project, we are looking to expand our primary school provision throughout the region.

By visiting primary schools every fortnight, we built a great rapport with the schools, staff and pupils to make maximum impact.

We deliver a number of generic sporting skills, team building activities and small sided games during our hour-long session.

The aim is for the pupils to become more skilful, learning important life skills through sport and ultimately enjoying the experience whilst looking after their health & wellbeing.

Our Service Level Agreement enabled us to allocate the school a Gateway Community Coach to deliver the practical sessions and much more.

Obviously, the sporting sessions themselves are of the highest calibre but the scheme comes with many attractive add-ons including entry into our annual Primary Tag rugby festivals (final played on Rodney Parade at the Dragons last match of the season), complimentary tickets for two selected Dragons matches and a reward ticketing scheme for parenting programme, staff and pupils.

We are currently working with Primary schools from all around the region with huge success, and would welcome more schools into our #GatewayRugbyFamily to enjoy the many inspiring opportunities.
