Parents and Children Active Together with the RFU Families Fund

Bringing families together to get active is the main aim of a fantastic initiative from England Rugby. It’s delivered through Active Devon and a brilliant team of volunteers.

The Tavistock Family Couch to 5k (C25K) and multisport sessions are part of the RFU Families Fund.

The sessions take place at the same time and in the same place every week and they enable parents and their children to get active together in a safe environment.

The local coaches, Simon from Tavistock Rugby Club and Dotty (C25K), make sure every family gets the most out of the sessions.  Most importantly they ensure everyone has fun, maximum enjoyment and get to meet new families from their local community.

The feedback from parents and children has been amazing:

“I wanted to say how much my children are enjoying the sessions! Secretly I’m certain my wife is too. She is starting to CHOOSE to go for a short run here and there, which I have never known her to do.”

“She would never engage and join in and now has much more confidence and wants to take part.”
