Try Our Game
Try Our Game Resources
We know that there are many women who have always been inspired to pick up a rugby ball and just having a go, we regularly here women saying 'its always been one of those sports i'd just love to try?' well now is the chance for us to help these women to give rugby a try. We want to support them in a low pressure, low stress, fun environment and get them to go along to a local club and have a bit of a laugh trying the game we know so many women are now hooked on! And if they decide this is the sport for them you can encourage them to join the team for next season.
We have set up a 'Try Our Game' programme for clubs which, will serve as a simple and supported introduction into rugby for new players and to help you attract more women into the game for the long term. Your regional Game Changer is a fantastic resource to assist you in the development of the programme at your club, you can find their contact details towards the back of this booklet.
This guide is to assist those who may be interested in running a try our game program and has been designed with coaches, female players and clubs in mind.
To view all activities, please click on the sessions under the title Resources in the menu to the left.
Why start a Try Our Game programme?
We have developed a 4 week coaching programme that can be run for approx an hour session once a week which has been tailored around ensuring a positive, fun and engaging introduction for women who are new to rugby. The aim of these introductory sessions is to build a safe environment to develop rugby confidence, have fun and hopefully encourage these women to take the next step and register to your club!

- Organise the program - Including the all important welcome
- Delivery of quality fun, progressive and safe sessions
- Strategies on how to integrate those new players into your existing team
