In an inspiring showcase of talent, teamwork, and the transformative power of sport, the Community Chiefs recently hosted a remarkable schools festival under the nationally funded Project Rugby programme.

This initiative, which seeks to bolster rugby participation across diverse communities, brought together over 100 enthusiastic boys and girls from schools spanning Tiverton, Launceston, Paignton, Teign, and Torquay.

Project Rugby's noble mission to engage underrepresented groups within the sport was vividly brought to life as the festival welcomed a multitude of young people. The event underscored a vital community outreach, extending an inclusive invitation to all schools involved in the programme, thereby nurturing a new generation of rugby enthusiasts and players.

Held at Topsham RFC, the day was planned to offer students not just a glimpse into the sport but a deep dive into its core values of respect, teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship. The festival aimed to instil a lifelong passion for rugby among the participants.

Feedback from the youngsters and attending schools was positive, with many noting the profound impact it had on the students' perception of rugby.

The festival not only served as a platform for introducing the sport to new audiences but also reinforced the Community Chiefs' commitment to inclusivity, community engagement, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles.

The Community Chiefs extends their thanks to all the schools, participants, coaches, and volunteers who made this festival a resounding success. We are inspired by the enthusiasm and potential displayed by all involved and look forward to nurturing these budding talents in the seasons to come.
