Sharks Community Trust are delighted to be back delivering, albeit not to the volume we would usually expect.
We have completed the largest summer of Rugby Camps and Development Days, despite the restriction on numbers we had over 430 young rugby players developing their Sharks DNA. Trust Coaches delivered over 500 coaching hours across the North West, as young people were able to get back to playing Rugby following the sudden stop to the season in March. Rugby Camps and Development Days had a focus on core skills, with the introduction of new games and skills zones to keep in line with England Rugby and the Government guidance. The Trust was able to connect with 12 grassroots rugby clubs with a waiting list of clubs wanting to host a Sale Sharks Rugby Camps. We would like to thank the following clubs for hosting and look forward to going back there in the future: Kendal RUFC, Sandbach RUFC, Winnington Park RFC, Lymm RUFC, Vale of Lune RUFC, Chester RUFC, Bowdon RUFC, Wigan RUFC, Stockport RUFC, Macclesfield RUFC, Bury RUFC and Wirral RUFC.
Walking Rugby has restarted at a host of clubs with start dates in the diary as we expand the offering to new clubs. Walking Rugby is a slower paced game of touch rugby that is ideal for those who are aged 50 years and older or those who cannot play contact rugby anymore. This is a less physical, slower paced version of touch rugby with adapted laws to suit participant needs.
The sessions are aimed to give rugby playing opportunities for those who may have never played rugby before and those who played previously played and cannot play anymore and want to re-engage with rugby at a slower pace. Sessions are a great way to increase your social activity and make friends with like minded people.
New clubs launching: Anselmians RUFC, Hoylake RUFC, Aldwinians RUFC & Halifax RUFC
Returned to Walking Rugby: Stoke RUFC, Manchester RUFC, Sandbach RUFC, Moore RUFC, Eccles RUFC & Northwich RUFC
