Volunteer coaching opportunity on new RugBees programme

The Foundation are looking for committed volunteers from the community game to aid us in the delivery of our new RugBees programme.

RugBees is open to girls aged 7-11 and will be delivered on a weekly basis by club foundations to help them develop their confidence in areas such as catching, passing and kicking – whilst having plenty of fun too. It’s the first Rugby League programme to be developed specifically for primary school aged girls and the RFL has chosen the popular RLWC2021 mascot RugBee, to bring the project to life.

Each session will be an hour long, beginning with an introduction to the game’s technical skills and finishing with a non-contact form of the game such as Tag or Touch. Volunteer coaches will be required to help and support the players throughout these sessions, whilst developing their own coaching skills.

The programme will run across two separate hubs:

Leeds West Academy (Saturday 9:30am – 10:30am)

Carr Manor High School (Tuesday 6:00pm – 7:00pm)

These positions are voluntary roles and in return for their efforts, coaches will benefit from the opportunity of working in a professional environment.

The RugBees programme will run for 10 weeks, concluding on the 22nd and 26th of August.
