What is Get into Rugby Schools?

Get into Rugby is non-contact and provides the 'first taste of Rugby' for primary and secondary pupils through 3 channels;

 1. Get into Rugby ‘Classroom Resources’ are relevant and useful for Australian teachers. The resources are linked to the current Australian Curriculum Health and Physical        Education (AC:HPE) Resources are composed of four different themes; Diversity, Heroes & Heroines, Fair Play and Health.

2. Get into Rugby 'On The Field' is a 40 minute session designed to be taken outdoors.  Students learn skills through interactive activities building their confidence to a level where they enjoy a non contact Touch 7s Carnival in the final week of the program.

A comprehensive resource of skills based physical literacy activities are available for teacher delivery or you can request a Rugby Australia accredited Get into Rugby Deliverer to look after all the field components, ensuring a fun and informative experience for your students.

3. Touch 7s is the non-contact format of rugby promoting, energy and inclusiveness for all skill-levels.

 The Touch 7s Carnival D.I.Y pack will allow you, your colleagues, students or volunteers to run the awesome mini-event.
