Women’s Rugby

    I am trying to find an innovative way to tell girls and women about rugby on the Northside of Dublin.

    There is a HUGE region of girls / women wih a sporting education - many of whom don’t continue in sport at all.

    Keeping girls / women in sport is very important and rugby may be something they haven’t tried.

    If anyone has ideas I’d love to hear them!

    When you say tell them about rugby presumably you mean get them playing?
    I’m sure you know this but tag/tip are the gateway drug. Realistically you probably need to hit the primary schools and do sessions along with getting some teachers involved/trained but again I’d imagine you know that.

    Thanks Salmo.

    Yep that’s true and very effective. I was thinking in the wider space beyond the reaches of the traditional CCRO and also targeting school leavers, students and older.

    The fall of in women’s sports is astounding. Furthermore girls have usually played something in school so have some physical literacy.

    Rugby is so untapped on most of the Northside it would seem there must be thousands of potential players without any awareness the opportunity exists to try rugby.

    I’m eager to reach out to this mass of 18-30 year olds (or older) and say “here - try this” and perhaps some will love it.

    ...but how to reach them!
