Brand-New RugBees To Inspire Local Girls To Play Rugby League

The Hull FC Community Foundation is delighted to announce the deployment of a new project, which aims to encourage more primary school aged girls to take up the sport.

RugBees, a new Rugby Football League initiative, is being rolled out by community foundations across the country, including Hull FC’s Community Foundation.

Open to girls aged 7-11, the sessions will be delivered on a weekly basis at Johnny Whiteley Park, home of West Hull ARLFC, on Saturday mornings (9.30-10.30am).

Development of areas such as catching, passing and kicking will be worked on at the sessions, whilst there will be plenty of fun involved.

It’s the first Rugby League programme to be developed specifically for primary school aged girls and the RFL has chosen the popular RLWC2021 mascot RugBee to bring the project to life.

Each session will be an hour long, beginning with an introduction to the game’s technical skills and finishing with a non-contact form of the game such as Tag or Touch. Parents and guardians will be encouraged to cheer children on throughout.

Sessions will last for 20 weeks and will be charged at £1 per session.
