Caryl Thomas, Bath Rugby community coach, visited St Keyna in Keynsham recently to run a School of Tag session.
School of Tag is a five week tag rugby programme set up with The Bath Rugby Community Team in conjunction with the Bath and North East Somerset School Sport Partnership to deliver coaching in and around Bath and the local area.
Caryl enjoys teaching children to enjoy exercise and how to play non contact rugby. The first sessions teach children ball skills and the use of tags. By the end of the five weeks they are playing tag rugby team games against each other. Despite the rain, the children at St Keyna were having a great time challenging each other to a game.
All participating children, and their families, are given the opportunity to attend a Bath Rugby match at the Rec and the children have the opportunity to take part in a half-time pitch parade.
