The Ballarat Highlanders RUFC have had a huge interest in the running of a children’s program, mainly for primary school aged kids. This initiative is being run with assistance from Rugby Victoria, ensuring the coaching and activities are run as smoothly as possible. Through this program, the Ballarat Highlanders are hoping to highlight that rugby union is a sport for all, no matter how big or small.
The cost of registration for this program is $85 per child and needs to be executed through the Rugby Explorer App. Through this program, the child will receive specialised coaching, a gift bag and t-shirt with the club logo on it. We are hoping that our program will peak the children’s interest to help increase participation and skill levels of players in country Victorian rugby.
As a club, we are endeavoring to ensure everyone who is working with the Juniors program at the very minimum has a valid Safe Working with Children’s check. This is one of few directives that we have chosen to follow in the process of our Goods Sports accreditation.
We have a Director of Children’s Rugby, Nick Hayes, in place. If you have any questions or wish to indicate your interest, feel free to get in contact with Nick Hayes at firstname.lastname@example.org
