The 'Wizards Community Team' have launched a new initiative in the Port Talbot area for U13 and U14 children.

It is nationally recognised that there is a significant drop off in rugby participation levels at U13 and U14 level, in Port Talbot this is certainly the case.

In an effort to raise participation levels, the Community Team will deliver seven rugby sessions across the Port Talbot rugby clubs, including, Baglan, Cwmafan, Aberavon Quins, Taibach and Tata, with added sessions held at Aberavon RFC and Ysgol Bae Baglan.

These sessions are not one off sessions. The sessions are planned to develop skills over the seven week period, therefore you should sign up to the 7-week programme and not just one week.

The sessions are not specifically for the rugby clubs mentioned below, the clubs mentioned are just venues and are not sessions for their rugby club. 

The sessions are free of charge and available to children aged U13 [year 8] and U14 [year 9] only.

Coaches are also welcome. If any coaches within the Port Talbot area would like to register, please do. You can learn of players currently playing in the Principality Premiership and also from WRU Level 3 and 4 coaches.

These sessions are designed to ultimately help develop players to make better individual rugby players, with a hope that the added benefit will develop better and more teams in the Port Talbot area in this specific age group.

Please select any of the sessions below if you are interested:

Week 7

Wednesday 22 February at Ysgol Bae Baglan

Sessions start at 4.30pm and will last for one hour, ending at 5.30pm.

Participants will need their own water bottle, protective rugby gear (gum shield and pads), wet weather clothing and rugby boots.
