Fancy toughening up your child in a fun and safe environment? How about rugby?
Not-for-profit Dragons Rugby Club is one option to go to.
Their rugby programme for children under five is filled with different basic game drillseach week.
They go through an hour of training with each activity lasting for 10 minutes.
Parents get to participate and look after their child during the training as well.
A parent and a volunteer coach for children under five, Mr Dean Vaughan, said the training is safe because there is no contact between each other.
“It is touch rugby, where a tackle is your two hands touch the opposition team’s ball carrier ‘on the waist’ at the same time and they must fall to the ground as if they were tackled,” said the IT manager.
Mrs Cherie Lim Ball, 42, told TNP that after her five-year-old son, Cameron, attended the programme, his coordination, ability to work with others and diligence have improved.
Cameron said: “I enjoy rugby as it allows me to run fast.”
Dragons Rugby Club practices at UWCSEA East Campus in Tampines on Saturdays from 4.30pm to 5.30pm. Practice will resume from Jan 14.
