Gateshead Rugby World Cup 2015 MegaFest - Applications OPEN

We are now accepting entries for next term's Year 3/4 Rugby World Cup MegaFest, scheduled to take place at Ryton RFC on Wednesday 6th May 2015 (13:00-15:30). 

This event has been incorporated into the Gateshead School Sport Partnership’s Calendar of events for 2015 to help promote and build on the excitement of the Rugby World Cup 2015. The MegaFest format is derived from the recently introduced ‘Kids First Rugby’ framework developed by the RFU, adopting a child-centred approach to support the development of young people through appropriate, competitive rugby union.

The festival is designed to allow mass participation and facilitate enjoyment with the focus being on the competitive opportunity that the different games provide, not the competitive outcomes of the games. Children are rewarded for demonstrating positive personal and social skills, good movement skills as well as their rugby skills.

Over the course of the festival children will carousell around 10 different rugby skills activities and games - click on the following link for additional detail relating to each activity; Kids First Rugby Schools Comp Guide.pdf
