Graduates of our training that go on to purchase our yearly subscription package can use an individual ‘Rugger Rascals Instructor’ logo to show that they have trained through us and can also list their details as a coach on our main website and purchase branded kit for merchandising and social media advertising.  Doing so reflects that you are an individual coach or business that has trained through our rugby program and delivers its contents.  You are not permitted to imply any commercial relationship with Rugger Rascals. 

We are not a franchise.  Instead we offer more flexible ways for people to integrate preschool sports into their community in ways that fit their individual needs.  For those that want to simply add preschool sports to an existing sports /fitness business they can simply purchase our training, learn, and then purchase regular lesson plans if they wish to do so.  For those that do not have an existing sports/fitness business, we recommend purchasing our yearly subscription package which will enable you to list your details on our main website and receive a ‘Rugger Rascals Instructor’ logo for marketing purposes.  By offering more flexible solutions we hope to make preschool sports more accessible to all.

There is excellent earning potentially in running your own preschool rugby classes.  Classes are low cost to set up and can be delivered in preschools and nurseries in addition to private classes in venues such as gyms, sports clubs and public halls.  By charging per child per class you are able to build up the profitability of each class by increasing class numbers, or you can charge a higher hourly rate for one-to-one coaching.  You can also charge preschools or nurseries a set session charge.  Advice or what to charge is included in the Rugger Rascals Instructor training course.

Yes. To teach preschool sports professionally, in most countries you will need professional liability insurance. Most schools or venues will ask you for a copy of your professional liability insurance certificate. For U.K based coaches we recommend using Insure4sport who are specialist sports insurers.

To be able to teach preschool sports you need quality training, professional liability insurance and a basic first aid certificate. We also advice that you comply with regulations in your specific country about getting police vetted before instructing preschool sports classes.
With our Rugger Rascals Instructor Training certificate you will be able to obtain professional liability insurance. To be able to get the certificate you are required to complete the course and each of the questions at the end of every module. On completion of these steps you will receive a Rugger Rascals Online Training certificate with your photo and name on it.

Yes. We provide a full and basic kit list within the training course which lists the minimum items you will need to get started as well as the more comprehensive kit list for all of our games. These can either be purchased as a bundle through Sporty Rascals or you can obtain them individually through a provider of your choice.

Our Rugger Rascals instructor training course equips you to teach preschool children from 18 months to 6 years old.

No prior qualifications are required, however you must be over the age of 18 and have the energy, fitness and enthusiasm to teach preschool sports.
