Welcome to the Nottingham Community Rugby
The pages in this section will give you an insight into the
range of programmes currently offered through the Community
The Nottingham Community Rugby team
drives a host of programmes and aims to deliver an array of
projects and courses to support the growth of local rugby. We aim
to deliver high quality programmes which have proved to be a highly
effective way of expressing educational and health related messages
to young people. The community department also takes its
teachings to several colleges, independent schools and universities
in the East Midlands.
The team focuses on developing
effective partnerships within the community, forging links with
local authorities, schools, sports clubs, local businesses,
charities and other like minded organisations that in turn help to
fund our work.

coach, also coaches within the community.
