HRUFC Foundation

“From primary schools to retirement home, we are here to keep people physically and mentally fit throughout their life. Using rugby as a means to access areas of inequality, deprivation and hardship, we will ensure that everyone in the Harrogate community has the opportunity to benefit from the amazing game that is Rugby Union”

School Tag Rugby Sessions

Since December 2022, The Harrogate Foundation has been delivering tag rugby sessions to primary schools in and around the Harrogate area. Designed and led by RFU qualified coaches, sessions are designed to introduce tag rugby to children that may never have stepped foot in a rugby club before. 

At the end of the year, all local primary schools are invited to take part in the annual Harrogate Schools Tag Rugby Festival. A day of fun and good competition, and hopefully a bit of sunshine. All those children that have been working hard in sessions all year get the chance to put their new skills to the test. Check out the report from the 2023 event below.
