Let’s Play Teams up with the Sharks



Let’s Play has partnered the Kwazulu-Natal Rugby Union on a programme in selected school communities to introduce rugby into non-playing rugby schools. The Let’s Play rugby programme to be facilitated by the Rugby Union aims at improving social conditions of the learners through the medium of sport in these school communities.

The Let’s Play rugby programme kicked off in 2011 during the Rugby World Cup. It aimed to share the fun of the game of rugby with as many children as possible in the World Cup year, targeting non-playing rugby primary schools throughout the country by providing coaching clinics.

The Let’s Play rugby clinics took place on Wednesday afternoons in partnership with local Rugby Union’s structures, providing a sustainable approach and introducing both boys and girls aged U9, to a safe, non-contact version of the game. Over 6 000 children from 190 schools across the country participated in these clinics.

In 2012, Let’s Play successfully launched the first schools Rugby league which was endorsed by the Gauteng Department of Education and the National Department in partnership with the Blue Bulls Rugby Union. 44 schools participated in the league.

The first Let’s Play/Sharks Rugby skills development clinic takes place on Friday 8th February at Woodburn Stadium in Pietermaritzburg from 12h00 to 14h00. 500 children aged 8-10yrs from 20 local schools will participate.
