Old Mutual Wealth Kids First CPD's
Please read below for an overview of the specific age group CPD's as part of Old Mutual Wealth Kids First.
The Old Mutual Wealth Kids First Age Grade CPD's for U7 – U13s have been created to support coaches in helping players make the transition through the age grades by adopting the Kids First philosophy of:
• Putting children at the heart of everything they do and all decisions they make
• Encouraging fun on the pitch, through equal opportunity and realistic expectations of children
• Developing children’s confidence and character as players and as people
• Building adults’ skills to provide a safe, healthy, respectful and enjoyable environment for children
• Championing rugby’s core values, inspiring a lifelong bond between children, adults and rugby
The workshops will combine the Kids First philosophy with developing skills at each grade and following the incremental progression through the age grades.
Each workshop will look at player welfare, movement skills, coaching through adaptive games, game management/refereeing and modelling how the game looks for that specific age grade.
