Inclusive sport for all
PLAY ON Rugby is a program that provides an opportunity for children with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the game of rugby structured to their abilities. The main goals of the program are creating a fun and safe environment where the players can be active, meet new teammates and work to develop skills through modified rugby drills and games.
Children do not have to have a diagnosis to join Play On Rugby. If they struggle in mainstream sports and would benefit from a small group setting that adapts to the children’s needs please encourage them to play!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions and please share with as many families as you can.
