Rugbees relaunches from September

Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is delighted to announce dates for our new Rugbees Girls-only campaign will recommence this month.

Relaunching from the Be Well Support Stadium, the weekly sessions will start on Monday, 25th September 2023 from 5:30pm, priced at £2.50 per participant, following on our commitment to the Her Game Too charter signed in March.

RugBees is a brand-new programme to encourage more girls aged 7-11 years old to take part in the sport, launched by the RFL’s National Women & Girls’ Development Manager and England Captain, Jodie Cunningham.

The female-specific sessions are designed for Primary School-aged girls to be a fun and enjoyable introduction to the sport, supporting girls to build their confidence and develop their core skills such as passing, catching and kicking.

The hope of the programme is to reduce the number of female players dropping out of the sport from the younger age grades, whilst the increasing number of female participants by offering a much-needed girls-only offer. The girls can both be brand new to rugby or play for their local community club.

This is an incredibly exciting time for Wakefield Trinity as we look to incorporate this programme with a new talent pathway opportunity for girls in years 8-11, further progressing the age groups as we look to bring through and develop emerging talent within the area.
