Playing rugby regularly improves young people’s behaviour and their ability to learn.
Evidence suggests that there had been a noticeable shift and improvement on and off the pitch since the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) introduced a pioneering rugby hub scheme three-years-ago.
North Wales currently has 9 full-time officers in place and employed by schools and colleges across the region, a programme created in partnership with the WRU.
Rugby hub officers are all full time roles, paid for by schools and clubs via the WRU to run rugby sessions in the schools as well as in the local clubs. They help to unite schools, clubs and communities as well as facilitate the WRU purpose of engaging more people, more often, with more enjoyment and more success in our national game, both within schools and local clubs.
