Rugby Clubs East Sussex

Rugby Clubs in East Sussex offering tag and contact rugby coaching lessons for children. Girls and boys from as little as 2 years old can start to learn how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. Rugby coaching for pre-school to U6's play non-contact tag rugby and are not allowed to play competitive matches against other clubs, so train only. Children up to school year 3 (U8's) are taught tag rugby and in school year 4 (U9's) coaching moves away from tag rugby and introduces tackling for the first time - contact rugby. Rugby coaching focuses on children having fun and enjoying themselves in this fast-moving sport.

Rugby is divided into two main “codes”; Rugby League and Rugby Union.

In RUGBY LEAGUE, each side has 13 active players, and 10 substitutions.. The main aim is to score tries by advancing the ball down the length of the pitch. The opposing team hopes to prevent this by tackling. When a player is successfully tackled in Rugby League, they must drop the ball and roll it behind themselves with their foot, so that it can be picked up by someone else. There is a finite tackle limit in Rugby League, and when this tackle limit is reached, the ball must be handed over to the opposing team. If the ball is out of play, the opposing team will be awarded a scrum, which almost always results in that team gaining possession of the ball. Scrums may also be used for other infringements. These scrums traditionally consist of a total of 6 people.

In RUGBY UNION, each side has 15 active players, and 7 substitutions. Players aim to score points by touching the ball down past the opposing team’s try line. Points can also be scored by kicking the ball through the correct section of the goal posts. When a player is tackled, the ball can then be picked up by any player from any team, so long as they are on their feet and they have come from an onside position. In theory, there is not a finite number of tackles. If the ball is out of play, a line-out will be awarded to restart the game. Other minor infringements are solved with scrums. These scrums normally consist of 8 people.
