The benefits of clubs and classes

5623db7ac5ace33c735170d1e94d8e59.jpgIt is widely accepted that clubs and classes are an integral part of the schedule for most young children, and there is currently a huge choice of pre-school activities on offer for families in the UK.

Competition within certain communities is rife, as parents want to ensure that their children are given the best opportunities to try a variety of clubs and classes.  The reality is children have so much choice, from cookery to karate and from ballet to rugby, and we are giving our little one's more chances than ever before.   There has never been a better time for us to be able to expose our children to different activities, whether we discover a future top flight sports star, ballerina, or a child makes a new friend.

The benefits of participating in activities and sports are well publicized, and when selecting classes, parents quite rightly have high standards and clear ideas of what they want their children to gain.   It would be very simplistic to say we need to keep our child active in a bid to combat rising obesity rates in children; the reality is that an active lifestyle is only one part of that particular problem, and the benefits of attending classes are so much than just the physical.

At Rugbytots, we have always been very passionate about providing our children with a fun introduction to our sport, and in some cases it is a child's first experience of any kind of sport or activity outside 1fcf198ff380bc4673c85b03e4019e25.jpgof their home environment.  Our programme is carefully designed to ensure we strike the balance between fun, education, social and physical development. The sense of achievement a child feels when they master a new skill, and the obvious pride from their parents is amazing to witness, and what could be better for the self esteem of a young child?  Any Rugbytots coach will tell you that the best classes are the ones where children run in, excited to be there, and leave chattering about what a fun time they have had.  Whatever activity a parent selects for their child that is a true measure of time and money well spent!
