We are currently able to offer the following programmes either free of charge or at reduced rates to those who require assistance. As we raise more funds we hope to be able to offer more programmes at no charge or at reduced rates. Please see the Programmes for Schools link below and the Sponsorship page for more details of all the potential programmes.
Programmes for schools
The Fylde Rugby Community Foundation, through our association with Community Group are able to offer the following programmes to schools at the prices indicated on the school offers download. We are continually seeking funding to allow us to support schools in meeting these costs. For further information please view the download below.
Rugby Pathway Programme
We are aware that several of our programmes will create an interest in being involved in the game of rugby but it may not be easy for young people to get to a rugby club or they may not be able to afford the necessary kit or they may lack the confidence to take that first step to actually join a rugby club. The Rugby Pathway Programme will provide the necessary assistance for up to 75 young people from our Primary Prospects Programme, Junior Development Programme, Girls Rugby Programme and Rugby and Multi Sports Camps to join a rugby club (initially Fylde RFC) and hopefully provide a route to lifelong sporting participation for these young people. In addition to helping with practical measures such as transport and kit, the beneficiaries will be supported by the Foundation’s Head of Community Coaching and other community rugby coaches who will ensure a smooth introduction to a relevant age group team.
Breakfast Clubs for vulnerable children
A fantastic project that will see Fylde Rugby Community Foundation provide breakfasts together with coaching, mentoring and support for vulnerable children. FRCF will be working with local charities and schools in organising this great initiative to support these children over the summer holidays and into the new academic year.
Rugby and Multi Sports Camps
The Fylde Rugby Community Foundation holds regular Rugby and Multi Sports Camps during school holidays which feature loads of fun, safe and enjoyable games and activities. All our sports camps are conducted in a safe and friendly environment and run by our professionally qualified and compassionate coaches.
The camps are inclusive for all and are open for both boys and girls aged from 5-16 from all local area schools and clubs. Designed to improve self-confidence, eye to hand coordination and social skills in a sporting environment where participants can enjoy themselves with little or no previous rugby playing experience required.
Rugratz Rugby is a new initiative to engage preschool aged children in the sport of rugby, these sessions include fun games and coaching new skills so that they are able to start their rugby journey from an early age.
Each 7-week block of sessions are specifically tailored to have a key focus on improving eye to hand coordination and social skills in a safe, fun, sporting environment.
There are many benefits for toddler sports including aiding in their development, improving social and communication skills, helping with focus and facilitating parents and guardians to bond through our parent participation.
Walking Rugby & Reminiscence Programme
Walking Rugby sessions for over 50’s at Fylde Rugby Club will start once COVID-19 guidelines allow. A chance for over 50’s to come together to participate in walking rugby activities coaches by our community rugby coaches and also sit down after for refreshments to engage in memories of the past. A great initiative that is funded by the National Lottery.
