Young people from Tidworth and Trowbridge scrum together to raise ambitions and learn about the values of rugby.

Rugby

Bath Rugby Foundation and Active Trowbridge are working with young people in Tidworth and Trowbridge running Premiership Rugby’s Urban Rugby Squad. Urban Rugby Squad is a ground-breaking new initiative that will see young people aged 14-16 from disadvantaged communities across England given the opportunity to participate in regular sporting activity and personal development workshops that use rugby as inspiration.

The programme builds on the Foundation’s existing inclusion projects, which aim to get young people ready for the world of work. Active Trowbridge has 16 qualified Sports Coaches, delivering over 300 hours of sports coaching per week in the community.

Kyle Eastmond and Ross Batty are attending the session to talk to the participants about the values of rugby: camaraderie, loyalty, discipline and respect. The hope is that the participants are inspired by the players to go beyond their day to day environment and strive to be the best.

Over the course of the programme participants have been introduced to the game, with practical sessions built around personal workshops that focus on areas including anger management, drugs/alcohol misuse, sexual health and physical fitness assessment.

Bath Rugby’s Ross Batty said: “Rugby has the power to teach young people a number of life skills as well as the obvious health and physical benefits, so I can’t wait to get stuck in and hopefully encourage more young people to fall in love with the game.”
