Quilter Kids First is England Rugby’s approach to rugby for 6-13 year olds. It gives children the opportunity to prosper by fostering an environment for having fun, learning and building confidence.

We’re asking rugby clubs and schools across the country to take the Quilter Kids First pledge to commit to a range of high quality standards to:
•Put children at the heart of everything we do and all the decisions we make.
•Encourage fun on the pitch, through equal opportunity and realistic expectations of our children.
•Build the skills of our adults to provide a safe, healthy, respectful and enjoyable environment for kids.
•Develop children’s confidence and character as players and people.
•Champion rugby’s Core Values, inspiring a lifelong bond between children, adults and our sport.


All clubs and schools can sign up.

Ask your Club Chairman or Head Teacher to take the Quilter Kids First pledge by registering their details.

As part of the registration process all clubs and schools will pass through a safeguarding filtering. Shortly after, they will be contacted directly by the Rugby Football Union.
