Currently the program is restricted to year 7 & 8 boys across 7 secondary schools however, the potential to expand and improve the program is vast.  Increasing to 10 secondary schools and 5 primary schools and including girls would enable the program to reach and benefit an expanded audience.

A number of initiatives have been planned to increase impact, enjoyment and overall benefit.

  • RFU courses for participants and volunteers – First aid, refereeing, coaching
  • A league table comprised of efforts on and off the pitch
  • An incentivised pathway to play and stay with local club Southwark Rugby
  • One to one mentoring provided to selected pupils
  • Trips to watch a Premiership rugby match
  • School workshop on nutrition
  • More prizes and awards for participants
  • Food after each festival
  • All-stars team comprised of best players from each school to represent Southwark
  • Parental involvement/interest, this is key to the players continuing their development outside of the program
  • Photographing and videoing of events
  • Structured professional development for coaches
  • Free gumshields
  • All-year-round program
  • Expand so that each school can contribute 2 teams across 3 age groups – Year 7, 8, 9
