Little Steamers

Little Steamers Rugby is a Bay of Plenty Rugby programme focused on promoting and educating parents/guardians to be active with their children.

This pilot programme for three- to four-year-olds will be run across five locations in the Western Bay of Plenty from Saturday March 3 for six weeks. The programme is structured to promote and educate parents and/or guardians to be active with their children.

The content of the Little Steamers Programme will be facilitated by Bay of Plenty Rugby High Performance players’ including a selection of Steamers, Volcanix’s and Academy players. During the one hour session, trainers will deliver a fun active session focusing on skills and fun rugby related games.

The programme has been designed to assist the growth and development of a child’s cognitive, physical, social and emotional wellbeing. For parents the programme will provide them the opportunity to engage with their child to develop as a positive role model, learn skills and activity, and be able to motivate their child in an active and positive environment.
