The Lions classes for children aged 3½ - 5 years old continues to focus on core motor skills such as balance, agility and co-ordination and begins to introduce more rugby specific skills such as evasion, spacial awareness and scoring tries.

We use Midi sized Rugby balls for these sessions, which is the natural progression from foam balls to size 3 which is used for junior Tag Rugby. These sessions last for 60 minutes and do not require parental participation.

During the Lions sessions, we focus on developing children’s social skills and so special attention is paid to teamwork, taking turns, sharing and listening skills. These form the basis of the Lions award scheme for the class and ensure that children are ready to participate in the more team game themed Sharks sessions.
