Basingstoke RFC is excited to announce our new rugby development programme for Early Years children with 'Ruggerbugs' at Basingstoke RFC, where we are looking at classes hopefully starting in late September/early October.

'Ruggerbugs' is a UK Premier Award-Winning Sports Rugby Development Programme for children from the ages of 18 months upwards to Year R, and Basingstoke RFC are thrilled and very proud to be able to offer a fun and exciting pathway into rugby for younger children in North Hampshire.

Subject to interest, classes are looking to be scheduled to take place on Saturday mornings between 09:00 - 12:00 for an hour, depending on the age group.

'Ruggerbugs' is also a fully accredited fellowship member of the Children’s Activities Association (CAA) and is the first organisation delivering pre-school non-contact rugby to receive its GOLD accreditation – In addition, Ruggerbugs has received high recognition from Saracens RFC and has become a Saracens Partner Club, so your child is guaranteed the very best start in their rugby journey.
