Rippa Rugby was introduced to our School in September 2015 by Stuart Gallacher.
The impact was immediate through his inspirational coaching and teaching style. He has the ability to engage children across the whole age range at our school through interactive, well structured sessions. He has also worked with class teachers to develop their knowledge, skills and confidence with very positive outcomes. I would recommend Rippa Rubgy without any hesitation.
We have had Coach Stu in for a term, teaching Tag Rugby to our year 6 children within curriculum time.
With his enthusiastic manner, he engaged all children in fun, fast paced sessions. Throughout this term our children were able to develop their rugby skills alongside their confidence. Emphasis was always set on team spirit and respect for each other. As well as this the launch of the after school club has been a real benefit for our children. They love the games and the emphasis on respect and team work. We would definitely recommend Coach Stu to other schools with his professional approach and obvious passion for the sport.
Rippa Rugby has been a fantastic addition to the clubs our school offers.
Stuart is brilliant with all of the children and we are particularly impressed in the way that he continuously promotes positive sporting attitudes, team spirit and sports discipline. Rippa Rugby has also delivered high quality PE lessons, with lesson plans for us to keep, to our year 5 & 6, allowing our staff a high quality CPD opportunity as they worked alongside Stuart. Our children (boys and girls) are now genuinely excited about playing tag rugby.
