North Shields Rugby Football Club
Votes So Far:
North Shields RFC are a community based rugby club situated in the NE29 postcode area of North Tyneside. We have a thriving youth section of around 150 kids in various age groups from 5-15yrs old, our coaches are all RFU qualified and DBS checked. We maintain links with the local schools and work alongside other local charities and food banks to offer help and support to the most vulnerable in our community. Being located on the coastal strip we have unfortunately seen a raise in gangs of youths travelling into the area, gathering in large groups and causing damage and disorder.
This in turn has put young families off visiting the beaches and enjoying a day in the sun, parents are complaining that there is nothing for the kids to do which pushes them indoors playing video games or watching cartoons.
At North Shields RFC we believe that kids should be out in the sun exploring and running around with their friends, with this in mind we intend to run a ‘Free Summer Camp’ from 25-29 July with organised sports and games open to all. Our intention is to provide a safe and inclusive environment for the kids to enjoy themselves. We ultimately want to recruit these kids into our youth section so they can continue to enjoy the core benefits of our game and promote a healthy and active lifestyle however just seeing the kids having a great time with their mates will be good enough for us.
