Tag Rugby

Tag rugby is timetabled for the children in Third to Sixth Class - one lesson a week for eight weeks, starting after the February mid-term break.

Children don’t need any rugby experience as the game is all about running and passing where agility, speed and hand-eye co-ordination are the key skills. It is a soft contact sport, similar to basketball - so intentional impact, diving tackles and deliberate contact are forbidden and strictly penalised by the tag rugby officials. Tag rugby compliments a wide range of other sports, from soccer to Gaelic football and from hockey to tennis.
