Last weekend we teamed with the Black Sands Swimming Club to deliver a Get into Rugby impact event for 22 boys and girls. The swim team, which had children from as young as 6 up to 16, were introduced to rugby with a number of games which looked at the key fundamentals in a fun and safe way.
Members of the Black Sands team had recently returned from Australia where they had been competing in the Commonwealth games. It was a great chance for us to introduce such elite athletes to the game of rugby. Coach Kyle Dougan also got involved and we would like to thank him for agreeing to let his team try rugby, and for his help and assistance on the day.
The St Vincent rugby team travel to St Lucia this weekend to compete in a RAN 15s match. To find out how you can help develop rugby on either island on your gap year visit our volunteer pages - St Lucia or St Vincent.

We were delighted to be invited to the Sports Awards in St Vincent, where the sporting achievements of the last year were celebrated.
Coach Kyle, who is head of the swimming team in St Vincent, we nominated for coach of the year. The four time winner was celebrated for the continued success of the sport but missed out to Track and Field who'd had a stellar 2017!
Cricket, football and athletics were the stand out sports, but a passionate speak from the Prime Minister touched on his desire to help boost and develop all sports on the island, such as rugby and tennis.

World Rugby have been implimenting their Get Into Rugby project all over the world, with an emphasis on introducing the sport to as many people as possible.
Our work in St Vincent is aimed at supporting this, helping to aid the growth and exposure of rugby across the island.
This weekend we ran an Impact Event in the 9 steps community, a very poor area of Kingstown. We had young children, from as young as 4, taking part in a fun morning of rugby games. This session was supported by a local charity and all the children were fed and given free t-shirts.
It was a great success and we are now looking at running futher projects in the community.
