The Leicester City Tigers Foundation staff have been visiting schools across Leicester and Leicestershire to deliver practical tag rugby lessons and well-being workshops.
Two age groups from the school took part in the tag rugby session, which helped to get the kids active in and energetic way, whilst introducing them to the sport of rugby.
They also took part in an interactive workshop where they learnt about the positives and negatives of social media in society, alongside how to look after their physical and mental well-being.
Using examples from the country’s ‘lockdown’ period, youngsters shared their experiences of social media as well as ways they had kept ‘active’ over the last year.
The delivery of the educational sporting activities came as part of the Foundation's Inside Sport programme, which encourages schools to team up with Leicester Tigers to help engage and provide fun, interactive experiences as part of their curriculum.
Sam Swift, Foundation manager at Leicester Tigers said: "With lockdown starting to ease the Leicester Tigers Foundation is in a really exciting position. This month has seen us welcome back students and schools to the stadium, through Inside sport and Dynamite programmes.
“We are now back coordinating some exciting new initiatives, which we hope to be able to unveil in the near future.”
