Quick Summary

Urban Rugby is a modified, non-contact derivative of Rugby League which promotes healthy living and respect. It can be adapted to numerous environments with both males and females able to participate in the same activity. It's fun, it's fast, it's great for fitness and is an activity which participants could eventually play on an impromptu basis without supervision in parks or MUGA's.

The project will target 11 – 17 year olds. The delivery model involves taking the project into the community and transporting portable equipment to different satellite venues (community parks, recreational grounds, green spaces, local stadiums, etc) located within the most deprived areas of East Hull. Taking the activities out into different locations, this aims to attract a wide variety of participants, from different local neighbourhoods and BAME communities, and to facilitate easier accessibility.

Throughout the programme, the project will also deliver 'life skills' mini sessions alongside the sporting activities. With the support of partner organisations (e.g. Education, Hull Kingston Rovers RLFC, The Rugby Football League, Humberside Police, Active Humber, Hull City Council Youth/Sports Development), these short sessions will cover a range of topics, including volunteering in sport, drugs and substance misuse, anger management, youth crime, anti-social behaviour, further education, traineeships, apprenticeships, health and fitness, aspirations for the future, etc.
