• What Does My Child Need to Bring to Camp?

Other than a positive attitude and a stack of energy, your child will need to bring a packed lunch, a water bottle, a gum shield (over 9s), rugby boots, any medication they might need (labelled) and weather appropriate clothing.

  • Can You Do Early Drop-Offs and Late Pick-Ups?

Early drop-off and late pick-up is available at some of our camps priced at £5 per session. Please contact us for further details; tongauiharugby@gmail.com.

  • Will There Be Contact?

Contact drills will be a feature of our skills days for older children. These drills will always be controlled, focused on technique and led by children's confidence and ability. If any child wishes to opt out of contact, this can be discussed with the coaches. 

  • How do you Manage Age and Ability Differences?

Children are split into different age bands for specific activities in order to maximise their learning experience. Children will also be grouped, not only by age but also by confidence and ability when necessary.

  • Do all coaches have current DBS Checks?

Every coach employed by us has been DBS checked through the RFU centralised system. 

  • What Qualifications do the Coaches Have?

Every camp is managed by Soane Tonga'uiha, who has an RFU Level 2 Coaching Qualification. Each age group will be sub-led by a coach with a minimum of an RFU Level 2 Coaching Qualification. All our lead coaches have played rugby and have also had extensive experience of coaching children. 

  • Who is Your First-Aider?

Soane Tonga'uiha is the on-site designated First Aider at every camp and holds a recently completed First Aid certificate. A thorough risk assessment has been completed for every camp.

  • What Insurance Do You Have? 

We are fully insured, covering all aspects of rugby (including contact) via Howdens, who are the same insurers used by the RFU.
