About ScrumKids






    ScrumKids - Getting your children active
    Rugby Activities for children aged between two and eight years old!

    At ScrumKids we like to think we are a little different from our competitors. We shy away from the corporate look and try to be the ‘real rugby fans’ company. Our coaches are the very best, we don’t force you to purchase equipment specifically for our sessions and we work with local grass-roots rugby clubs to provide children with a clear pathway on their rugby journey.

    ScrumKids first opened its doors in 2013 when two couples, looking for some rugby activities for their little ones, found nothing in their home county of Warwickshire. You would expect the birthplace of rugby would be able to offer this! So did Mark, Clare, Stefan and Eleanor; and hence the idea of ScrumKids was born.


    In 2019 the company was taken over by our current CEO Jared Evans, a franchisee at the time based in Exeter, who continues to drive the ethos of the business and its focus on high quality rugby-based education for children everywhere.

    To date, ScrumKids has accommodated nearly 8,000 children and continues to open new classes in new areas to help spread an enthusiasm for the game and introduce ScrumKids to rugby clubs across the country.

    We’d like to put ScrumKids in every county, every city and who knows maybe even every country! But our primary focus will always be getting children engaged, excited and passionate about the game we all love.

        Happy kids and happy grownups

        Don’t just take our word for it - we’ve had some wonderful feedback from some of our ScrumKids’ grownups over the years

        • Great session with Coach James in Lincoln today. He makes the session fun, the kids absolutely love it. Parental involvement for the younger ones ensures that everyone gets involved and it’s actually a great way to spend a morning with your kids! Brilliant!
          Jessica Thompson
        • My son has been going to Scrumkids since he was 2 and absolutely loves it. His confidence has really improved with the team games and the coach is fantastic with the children. Would highly recommend!
          Laura Midwinter
        • Great set up here with 3 sessions depending on age starting with 2-3 year olds through to 7 when they could join a rugby club. Coach James is brilliant with all the kids. Slowly but surely building the fundamentals of rugby through games 👍 couldn't recommend enough
          Lee in Lincoln
        • Been taking Brodie to Scrumkids since he was 2 years old, he is now 5 and in the senior class. He loves it! Seen him grow so much in confidence and ability while being at scrumkids. James is also an excellent coach and so great with the kids.

        • My son adores scrum kids he talks about it the night before and wakes up full of beans. He loves the range of activities and never stops smiling. Jared is amazing as a coach at explaining everything in a child friendly way the kids beam with pride when he praises them - definitely a highlight of our week
