When and where will your sessions be running?
Our project will be delivered in a school in Southampton. At the moment we have three schools in contention, so we're meeting with our partners to decide which one would benefit the most from our project. The project will run for 12 weeks, but we have also established a partnership with Trojans Rugby Club to provide potential exit routes for participants.
What things are you looking forward to?
We're looking forward to undertaking a challenge where we can gain new experiences. Working with the RFU is a really exciting opportunity for us moving forward.
We're excited about delivering holistic sessions, as previously we have just been coaching rugby, so there is now a shift in focus with the nutrition and health side being involved too.
We're proud that we'll be delivering a project we've all created from scratch.
What challenges do you think you will face during your sport for development project?
Because we're working with girls, and half of our CIP group are male, there may be a sense of animosity that the male coaches may have to overcome and adapt to first.
We don't want to be considered as just volunteering students. We want to be considered as sports development practitioners making a difference within the comprehensive field.
