Carr Hill School Community Leaders Award Programme 2008
Fylde RFC's Community Coaching team have run this programme in partnership with Fylde & Wyre School Sports Partnership and Carr Hill School.
The programme developed a group of 12 pupils from the School's 6th form, through a Community Leaders Award in Tag Rugby. The leader then organised a Tag Rugby open day for five of the local primary schools. These schools included Weeton Primary, Newton Blue Coat, Freckleton CofE, Medlar with Wesham and Kirkham & Wesham.
The day consisted of training sessions ran by the Young Leaders in the morning, to introduce the primary school pupils to tag rugby and the rules of the game.
In the afternoon the leaders ran a small competition, with teams were made up of a mixture of pupils from all the schools. This allowed the players the opportunity to meet and work with new people. Over all there were 70 participants from the primary schools and 12 volunteers.
