Leeds Tykes have a community programme that has been running since the Spring of 2021. Since then, a great number of young people and adults have benefitted from the sessions and resources provided.
The aim of the community programme is to promote rugby to all in the Leeds area, increasing participation and involvement in the game, promoting the values of rugby and creating a link with community clubs and schools to Leeds Tykes.
We have highly qualified coaches that plan and deliver a range of rugby sessions that meet the needs of the group. ‘Introduction to rugby’ sessions are perfect for younger primary school children while more advanced coaching is used for high school students and adults. At the forefront of every session in the community are the values that the game of rugby promotes. They are what makes our game so special, fulfilling and worthwhile introducing to as many people as possible!
Running the community programme would not be possible without the support of some fantastic businesses that contribute to the program to provide equipment such as balls, tackle pads, bibs, coaching hours and coaching qualifications.
