Available to boys and girls aged 2 to 7, the West Bridgford classes will take place on Saturday and Sunday mornings at Alford Road Playing Fields.

They are divided into three age groups – 2 to 3.5, 3.5 to 5, and 5 to 7, and kick off on June 5th and 6th. James, who also played for Newport Gwent Dragons and captained Parma RFC in the Italian Super 10 during his career as a scrum-half, said: “With the continued easing of restrictions, we are delighted to be returning for our Summer Term.

“Rugbytots is a ‘fun first’, interactive rugby play programme for children that is perfect for developing important physical and social skills in an exciting, imaginative way.

“We think Rugbytots is a truly distinctive experience for parents and their little ones alike. Our motto is simple: ‘Make it more fun’.

“The Rugbytots programme is unique and has been thoughtfully and carefully developed over 15 years in consultation with child development specialists to ensure it targets the needs of each age group while delivering fun and energetic sessions.”

The classes – half an hour long for ages 2 to 3.5s, and 45 minutes for children aged 3.5+ – are led by Rugbytots’ engaging, enthusiastic and highly qualified coaches, who are all personally selected and trained by James.

Based around learning through play, they gently encourage fundamental rugby skills such as throwing, catching, kicking, and running with the ball, as well as featuring fun games and helping to build self-confidence through teamwork and togetherness.

During lockdown, while outdoor sports classes were suspended, Rugbytots offered free online sessions to help keep children in West Bridgford active.

Its coaches are also attending local schools, including West Bridgford Infants and St Giles Preschool, during upcoming sports weeks to deliver pro-bono sessions to help engage children in the sport.

Classes are also re-starting on June 5th and 6th at Dovecote Lane Park in Beeston, Newark Rugby Club in Newark and, for the first time, at Bingham Leisure Centre.

Sessions are available to book now via A block of 10 sessions costs £75.95, with a full refund available ​should a child not take to the classes after ​the first two sessions.

FREE taster sessions are offered to new starters at all venues, subject to availability – simply email to request a free ‘try’!
