Any idea is there any rugby academy for children below 6 years old?

God Bless!

Looks like not much interest :snooze: for this post so let me offer some support since I am a rugby parent. :rahrah:

There are a few rugby clubs/academies for juniors in Singapore as follows:-

(1) Centaurs Rugby Located at Turf City, Bt Timah. Provides coaching for boy & girls from 3 years old upwards.

(2) Dragons Junior Rugby Club Located at UWCSEA East Campus, Tampines. Provides coaching from under 5 years and upwards.

(3) Singapore Cricket Club Rugby Academy Training field is at Dempsey Hill. Provides coaching for both members and non-members from under 6 years upwards.

(4) Tanglin Rugby Club Provides coaching from 3 years old upwards at the grounds at Turf City.

If you want to nurture interest in rugby for your child, it would also make sense to enrol him into a school that offers rugby as a CCA to provide continuity. It would also become useful for DSA purposes if your son proves to be good in the game.

Whilst rugby appears to be a "rough" game, it is often cited as a ruffian's game played by gentlemen. Some minor bruises and sprains are to be expected. The rewards ..... a great character builder for your child. After playing in the same team for a number of years, their friendship usually becomes lifelong. They train hard, learn about teamwork, discipline, resilience, etc. The good thing about the game is that it takes them from primary school all the way to junior college and it is not as "lonely" a sport as athletics or swimming.

My son was from ACS(J) and he went onto ACS(BR). Some of his rugby team mates went to ACS(I) after PSLE. Despite being on different and opposing teams, they are still friends after all these years. Now he is in ACJC playing rugby as well and still hangs out with his ex-ACS(J) rugby team mates.
