Year 4/5/6 Tag Rugby Mega Fest

12 March from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This event  is open to all Schools within the Partnership:

In order to support and encourage mass participation and enjoyment in rugby we will be holding a Tag Rugby Mega Fest alongside the Tag Rugby competition at Shelford Rugby Club. Both events will take place on the same day at the same time.

The Mega Fest format will involve a separate festival format where children will rotate around a number of different rugby activities and competitive games.

Schools can enter a team into the competition plus a separate group of children into the festival OR just enter either the competition or festival.

Festival Requirements:

  • Years 5 & 6
  • Maximum of 16 children per group
  • 8-10mins per activity
  • Children will rotate around a series of different activity stations experiencing every activity
  • Focus on enjoyment & learning
  • Children will be rewarded for demonstrating personal and social skills, good movement skills as well as their rugby skills

Competition Rules:

  • 12 players on the squad with a minimum of 4 girls and 4 boys on the squad. (How the team fills the rest of the squad is up to each individual team).
  • 8 a-side, with at least 2 boys and 2 girls playing at any given time
  • To score, a player must run over the try line they are scoring towards and put the ball down on the ground
  • If a player gets tagged they must pass the ball backwards to a team mate
  • When a player tags someone they must give the tag back after shouting TAG!!!
  • Once tagged, a player must pass the ball
  • Players must have two hands on the ball
  • When a player is tagged everyone must stand on their side of the ball, or they are offside and a penalty is conceded, and a free pass is given to the non-offending team
  • If the game ever needs to be restarted it is done with a free pass
  • Most of all we would like all the children to have FUN at this competition.
