Various projects to support children, SEND and young people using sport. Includes Get active into work, a 12-week programme for people aged 16 and over who are not in employment, training or education and HITZ which uses rugby to engage young people who are NEET to give them the skills and qualifications they need to get back on their feet.

Education programmes arranged with schools:

Tackling Health – 1 hour of interactive healthy eating lessons and 1 hour of tag rugby delivered by our Bath Rugby Foundation coaches.

Raising the game (primary) – 36 weeks of 90 minute sessions for primary school pupils who struggle to engage with school or lessons.  45 minutes of this will involve practical activities in the classroom practicing the skills that make athletes mentally tough.  45 minutes of sport where we challenge ourselves to apply our new skills in a more dynamic environment.

Raising the game (secondary) – 18 2 hour sessions (delivered twice a week for 9 weeks) for secondary school pupils who struggle to engage with school or lessons.  1 hour of this will involve practical activities in the classroom practicing the skills that make athletes mentally tough.  1 hour of sport where we challenge ourselves to apply our new skills in a more dynamic environment.  We culminate with a contact rugby match at the Rec. to give our pupils a target to test their new mental toughness in an even more challenging environment.
