At Bath Rugby Foundation we use the core values of rugby to help develop young people mentally and physically.

By using the values of Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Teamwork and Sportmanship our coaches encourage the children and young people we work with to develop a positive growth mindset and reach their true potential.

We use sport to help participants to adopt a healthy lifestyle and build life skills.

Respect

Respect forms the basis of rugby – respect for opponents, teammates, coaches and officials. At Bath Rugby Foundation we believe we earn the respect of others in the way we behave.

Teamwork

Working as a team enriches our lives. We welcome new team members into our programmes and we make sure everyone is included. Our participants learn and play selflessly, taking pride in their teammates, growing together.

Enjoyment

Enjoyment is the reason we play sport. Our participants and coaches take part in our programmes with a smile on their faces. Our coaches encourage the young people we work with to enjoying learning, as they enjoy playing.

Discipline

Our coaches instil discipline in our participants, enabling them to understand that it is important to follow the right path to achieve success, in the same way that the laws of rugby must be obeyed. In all the areas we work our programmes are honest, fair and inclusive.

Sportsmanship

Bath Rugby Foundation exists because we believe every child and every young person in Bath and North East Somerset deserves an equal opportunity and the same chance to succeed. Sportsmanship is the foundation upon which rugby union is built and we uphold this tradition in all our programmes. Winning is not achieved at the cost of wellbeing, development and achievement.
