What a great sunny (at last) day Coach Emma, Jordan & Jonathan had at the Quilter Kids First conference at the AJ Bell stadium Home of Sale RUFC. It was great to see so many coaches who are committed to delivering Kids First Rugby & developing children's skills for life & hopefully life long players. We have lots of new warm-up & in-game coaching ideas to bring back with us which will help us to continue to deliver exciting & enjoyable training session that the kids will love. #QuilterKidsFirst #RodsRugby #forthemanynotthefew

That's a wrap 👍

What a fantastic 1st season so many successes.

We ended the season with 32 players signed on which is truly fantastic and smashed our target of 15 which we originally envisioned.

Big thanks to everyone that has helped from setting up the raffle to helping in the kitchen and running the bar also the tireless work by the coaches and team managers we couldn't have done it without you.

The support we have received from those involved with the club to get this vision up and running has been awesome and thank you.

The work behind the scenes to develop our coaches to deliver a great place for kids to play for not only today but next season puts us in a such a strong position.The kids have developed so much and the growth and development we have seen is something that will personally live long in my memory.

Our core values run strong and following these values have seen the kids develop so much quicker as a team which is how and why we deliver performances like today

Impressed was an understatement last night, I wasn't sure it would work having open age players training at the same night as the Juniors, after training the open age kicker was spending some time practicing his goal kicking.

My daughter who adores anything with regards rugby was asking questions about his technique whilst stood in the clubhouse, one of the players also in the clubhouse said why don't you ask him, she was a little apprehensive so he took her over to him, what followed was a 30 minute session teaching her and 5 other kids how to goal kick.
So if the Rodillians lose any matches due to goal kicking it's definitely the kids fault as he's spending more time teaching the kids 😂

When players make themselves available to the youngsters and integration occurs you build more fans for the game. I get the sense something is building here just want more people to see it.

Junior training is 6-30pm on a Tuesday if you have a child that's in Year 1-6 school age then bring them down and see what the fuss is about.
Big thanks to all the open age players that are making these kids feel welcome.
