Students from Y9 took part in the Project Rugby festival at Northampton Casuals RFC.
The Project Rugby initiative, sponsored by Premiership Rugby and the Premiership sponsors Gallagher, is aimed at raising participation in Rugby. In conjunction with the Northampton Saints a group of Y9 students took part in a series of sessions run by coaches from the saints in their PE lessons which cumulated in today’s tournament. The tournament saw CCS play in games against Northampton Academy & Wootton Park School, and in games where students were mixed with students from the other schools. The long term aim of the project is for students to have positive initial experiences of Rugby which then develop into regular participation at school and at local clubs like the Northampton Casuals RFC.
