These modified rugby forms have specially been designed to increase participation by making the game easy and enjoyable, and also increase the margin of safety by a significant much.

The first, Tag Rugby Trust, a charity initiative which was launched in the first week of February will be focused on the Eastern Part of Accra; Madina, Legon and the environs, whilst the second; Get Into Rugby a global (IRB) driven initiative will focus on the West part of Accra and then spread into the regions.

The program is a central part of the IRB’s initiative to grow the game as Rugby rejoins the Olympic Games in Rio 2016.

The Confederation of African Rugby Regional Development Officer for the Northern zone will come to Ghana to deliver a 2 days training session for the union representatives + 1 day training for teachers from 11 to 13 March 2014.

The aim of the program is to encourage children to TRY – PLAY – STAY in Rugby, with a target of one million new players and 15,000 new coaches and referees globally over the coming years. The program will promote the values of the game and ensure children are encouraged to Try Rugby in a safe and progressive way.
