Wednesbury RFC RWC Junior Recruitment Success
President Dave Reynolds and his coaching colleagues have been working tirelessly since the RWC in Japan finished trying to engage the children at Old Oak Primary School which is across the road from the clubs home. Targeting U7, U8 and U9 players the club proactively ran sessions to enthuse the children before inviting all the year groups down for a morning or afternoon of Mega Fest rugby.
The sessions at the club were extremely engaging and educational with the future players being taught Japanese phrases such as “Hello” “Kon’nichiwa” whilst also reminding them of the values of the game by using the word “Sonkei” meaning Respect.
The players were invited to an open morning either on a Saturday or a Sunday and all the hard worked paid off with a total of 60 new children attending the training sessions!
Well done to all those involved at the club.
