We are also starting another touch rugby session on Wednesday 2nd February at 6.00 to 7.00 pm. Venue: Huntington Secondary School.
These will last for 8 weeks, each session will cost £3 or £20 for the 8 sessions a £4 saving.
Will Saville from City of York Council said: "I was really impressed with the people we were able to attract. Most had never played rugby before.
"I was encouraged with the amount of females who got involved. Adam Prentis (York Knights) and Chris Charles (League 4 All Officer) were excellent in their coaching and ensured everybody enjoyed themselves and got the most out of the session."
These sociable sessions will be fun, friendly and great for improving fitness.
They will be led by RFL (Rugby Football League) professional coaches, who will take participants through some warm up and coaching before splitting them into teams to play. Men, women, complete beginners and those with an interest in rugby will all be welcome as no previous knowledge or experience of the game is required.
Touch rugby is fast, evasive and involves minimal contact. Originally developed in Australia and New Zealand in the 1960's, it has evolved from the sport of rugby league. The tackle of opposing players is replaced by a touch, making it a simple yet exciting game without the fear of getting hurt. The game is now expanding internationally and has its own world cup.
