There are many sports for kids to choose from these days and how to choose the best sport for your kids is a popular topic of conversation amongst parents. Our view at the Owls is that children should play whatever sport they enjoy the most. Some kids will enjoy the discipline of martial arts, some putting in individual effort in the swimming pool and some can think of nothing better than playing soccer and striving to be the next Lionel Messi.
However, we obviously believe that rugby is a pretty great sport that suits a lot of boys and girls. Apart from being a lot of fun, it allows them to develop a life-long love of sport, self-confidence and deep friendships. The big smiles on the faces of the kids in the photo after finishing a game on a very chilly Canberra winter morning is certainly evidence of how much fun rugby players can have.
In our club, we have families with multi-generations history of rugby through to families who are new to the sport. Across these families you’ll find some common themes on why they chose rugby:
These points are all echoed in the values of rugby: integrity, passion, solidarity, discipline and respect.
