Barnsley College Sport students have organised and officiated a tag rugby tournament in partnership with professional coaches from White Rose Rugby.
Tag rugby is a non-contact team game in which each player wears a belt that has two velcro tags, attacking players attempt to dodge, evade and pass a rugby ball while defenders attempt to prevent them scoring by pulling a velcro tag from the ball carrier. Tag rugby promotes core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.
The sessions were arranged by Level 3 Sport students as part of their course which requires them to organise a sporting event. Pupils from Burton Road Primary School, Summer Lane Primary School and Kexborough Primary School visited the College to take part in the tournament.
George Davis, a Level 3 Sport and Physical Activity student, said: “I really enjoyed the tournament. It was very competitive and provided me with team work, organisational and communication skills which I can use in the future.”
Tyler Moore from White Rose Rugby, added: “High quality of coaching delivery is essential to ensure both the growth and sustainability of rugby whilst keeping students and pupils engaged and developing their core values.”
