Roger Green founded Muddy Knees Kids’ Rugby in 2013 in an effort to pass on his passion for rugby. Having played rugby for many years, Roger firmly believes that developing rugby skills and playing team sports at the earliest opportunity is crucial to a child’s development.
All children – boys and girls – can start enjoying and benefitting from the skills that rugby brings them from the age of 2 years old and we focus on coaching rugby to 2-9 year olds.
We started Muddy Knees Kids’ Rugby at Tooting Common because of its wide open space and ease of access. In the first three years we have taught over 550 ‘little people’ to play rugby.
A fundamental element of Muddy Knees is that we believe learning rugby, at any age, should be enjoyed where it is meant to be played, outside in the fresh air – and to that end we are open in all weathers!
The aim of Muddy Knees is to develop team work, co-ordination and motor skills through play, but most importantly it’s a fun way of interacting with other children in a fantastic sport in the open air.
We have a large team of specialist, dedicated coaches who will encourage, help, develop and communicate with every child, making sure they have a fabulous time.
Children of all abilities are welcome to give it a try and to that end we offer every child a free trial session to see if they like it.
We nurture a community feel at our classes and our parents love to get involved. Come on down whatever the weather – and don’t forget the dog!
