White Rose Rugby have been funded and have on-going funding from Yorkshire Sport Foundation to deliver rugby sessions within the Young offenders prison at Wetherby. These sessions are based around the core values and focus largely on enjoyment. Not only do we run rugby coaching sessions, we also provide the opportunity for the participants to undertake cpd courses and have had our Bumbles coaches deliver various presentations to the group about inclusivity and how rugby really is for everyone, no matter on their background.
We hope our sessions provide the opportunity to develop new social skills and technical skills, for on and off the pitch.
What was the task? What did we deliver? and how did we achieve succesful sessions?
We visited Wetherby Prison institute to deliver sessions to the young offenders. The Task was to develop core values and introduce rugby to the group of participants. We were Looking to highlight team work and ability to accept decisions. At the Wetherby Prison Institute we delivered 22 rugby sessions based around developing the understanding of the game and the core values. The sessions varied in difficulty, with the aim to develop skills. We developed the participants understanding of how to work together and developed the understanding of core values and the game within the group. We enabled participants to take responsibilities of sessions and coach their peers. We also gave individuals tools which they could take on to use in rugby and outside of the game.
