Premiership Rugby worked with expert learning technology company Aspire2Be to create this innovative education programme which includes all 13 Premiership Rugby shareholder clubs meaning every school should be able to engage with a club in their area.

Premiership Rugby’s Tackling Health programme is an interactive project for children aged seven to eight which takes a holistic approach to teaching children about their own health, wellbeing and about leading a healthy lifestyle with a rugby focus.
