Passionate about future generations
As well as supporting the senior England rugby teams, we are also excited to be title partner of Quilter Kids First. Aimed at U7-U13 girls’ and boys’, Kids First upskills coaches and teachers, helps create a great rugby environment, and keeps kids in the game for longer. We chose to invest in the ‘Kids First’ approach because we’re passionate about playing our part in making a difference to the prosperity of future generations.
The approach provides a setting in which children learn to play the game at their own pace, developing their skills and having plenty of fun as they do so. It aims to support coaches and teachers the length and breadth of the country, whether they are at a club or at school.
Any club or school can sign up. Ask your Club Chairman or Head Teacher to take the Quilter ‘Kids First Pledge’ by registering their details. Find out more by visiting England Rugby’s website.
We run two key initiatives
Quilter Kids First Champions:
This programme recognises and rewards those clubs and schools who are leading the way and have shown exceptional quality in adopting the Quilter Kids First approach.
Winners are clubs and schools who have taken the Quilter Kids First pledge and subsequently been nominated via the Quilter Kids First Champions page to become a Champion.
To recognise these Champions work in adopting the approach to the game for under 7s to under 13s, they are invited to take part in a once in a lifetime Quilter Kids First training session at the home of England Rugby – Twickenham Stadium. There they will experience what it is like to be an England Rugby player for the day, as well as be put through their paces with lots of Quilter Kids First rugby games on the Twickenham pitch.
Quilter Kids First Super Skills and Skills Series
Quilter Kids First Super Skills showcases the England Rugby players demonstrating their abilities across a range of skills. Super Skills, provides advice to young players, as well as inspiring them to want to improve their skills.
To help further with developing children’s’ rugby skill set, we have also created Skills Series. Skills Series is a library of coaching videos with the England Rugby team that demonstrate how coaches and parents might help in developing the skills of their U13 to U7 rugby players, while also ensuring that everyone has fun.
