Garstang Community Academy hosted an exciting Primary School Tag Rugby Festival, sponsored by Lanes Vets, which was delivered by The Fylde Rugby Community Foundation. The event was a huge success, with eight teams comprising of around 80 girls and boys from years 5 and 6 all competing against each other in fun tag rugby games.
The festival aimed to encourage children to engage in fun tag rugby activities while promoting the core values of rugby in teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship. The participating schools from Garstang and Wyre showcased some exceptional rugby skills, scoring numerous tries, and received ample encouragement from the parents and teachers present on the side lines.
The Fylde Rugby Community Foundation provided coaches to help develop the skills and techniques of the young players, and referees were on hand to ensure the games were played fairly and with maximum enjoyment.
Additionally, a special recognition was given to one player who scored the best try of the festival. The medal for the “Best Try” was awarded to the deserving recipient, who demonstrated excellent rugby skills and sportsmanship throughout the tournament.
Lanes Vets were delighted to support the festival and promote their commitment to the local community. Lanes Vets has been serving the local area for over 40 years and offers a range of pet healthcare services.
