As part of being a student at Salford Red Devils Academy, learners are encouraged to participate and get involved in local sports events hosted by Salford Red Devils Foundation. These events promote community well-being, as well as giving learners the chance to put into practice all that they have learnt in the classroom.
Recently the foundation hosted a Tag Rugby event for local Salford Primary School children- both Boys and Girls, within Years 5 & 6. The event was targeted at this age group as a way of engaging children in Sport and providing a taster of Rugby as a positive outlet, The Primary Schools competing against each other in Tag Rugby matches to crown an overall winning School.
Our Academy learners assisted with coaching, refereeing and score keeping and we caught up with a couple of them (when they had a spare moment!) to find out their thoughts on the afternoon.
