Didi rugby was founded by ex England international Vicky Macqueen 2.5yrs ago in the Midlands. We launched in Pocklington and York in Feb this year. We now have weekly classes in Pocklington (Sunday), Beverley (Tuesday) and York (Wednesday) as well as brand new classes starting in Huntington on Weds 3rd Oct And Westow, nr Malton, on Fri 5th.
Our aim is to promote active healthy lifestyles in children from as early an age as possible whilst building confidence and ultimately having fun. Our sessions incorporate basic rugby skills such as throwing and kicking as well as lots of activities such as races, obstacle courses etc which focus on moving with the ball whilst developing balance and coordination. We tie in with children’s EYFS meaning we also include lots of colours and counting particularly for our youngest didi superstars.
If you remain undecided whether to give Didi Rugby a try, here’s some Mumbler reviews:
“Didi Rugby is great. Classes start from 18 months. Emma is great and the group is relaxed and age appropriate”
Mumbler KC, Sept 18
Mumbler DB (May 18) recommended Didi rugby in response to a Mumbler asking what classes she could take her toddler to where he would not be expected to sit still!!
We run weekly term time classes for 3 age groups, minis for 18mths to 3yrs, juniors for 3 to 4yrs and seniors for 4 to 6yrs as well as holiday clubs during school holidays. We also offer bespoke birthday parties for children aged up to 8yrs old.
Every child has their first session for free to see how they get on and thereafter a monthly DD is payable which spreads the cost throughout the year. This membership entitles children to a session a week during term time, discount on holiday clubs and birthday parties as well as access to our kit shop and any exclusive events throughout the year.
We’ve been lucky enough to support local primary schools with their sports sessions and offer a free taster to any nursery, preschool or school who may be interested in using didi rugby to help develop great skills for their students.
We do have even more classes in the pipeline across York and East Riding and are always looking for new team members with a passion for developing active healthy lifestyles and working with young children to join us to support this growth.
We’re super excited about our launches this week in Huntington and Westow and would love to see as many little ones as possible coming to give us a try.
