Become a Tagged delivery partner for 2017-18
After a successful pilot year, the London Rugby League Foundation in partnership with the RFL, are recruiting 10 additional universities to deliver the new recreational offer “Tagged”, from September 2017.
Tagged is a minimal contact version of Rugby League, played in a mixed gender format and is ideal for engaging beginners in a social team sport. Tagged can be played indoors and outdoors on either 3g or sand based Astroturf pitches.
During 2016-17 Tagged was launched at 12 universities, engaging over 600 students. 53% of the participants were female and 78% of all participants reported as being more physically active as a result of Tagged. For more info on year one projects click here.
If your institute has a focus on engaging those students who are not currently participating in sport or physical activity or has a focus on increasing female participation, then Tagged could be a great addition to your sports and recreation programme from September 2017.
You don’t need to have an existing Rugby League offer, 50% of our current partner institutes are non Rugby League playing institutes.
Tagged is delivered by a team of student activators who will be recruited during the summer term and provided with a bespoke training package over the summer to ensure they are ready to hit the ground running in September.
Partner institutes will receive a kit, equipment and training pack worth £5000 and the support of a dedicated project manager to help establish the offer. Please click here for more information on the Tagged Offer Package.
If you’d like to hear more about Tagged or register your interest please contact James Szymik – firstname.lastname@example.org or 07399414387.
Applications of interest close on Wednesday 10th May.
Here’s what some of our current partner institutes have to say on their experiences of delivering Tagged:
“Joining the Tagged Rugby project has been a wonderful adventure this year! We have had massive support from the LRLF which is important for us as we are a small and specialist university. It’s very simple to take part and we get so much out of it. Students love the social, non-competitive side which has turned Tagged Rugby into one of our most popular sports. Definitely recommend getting on board with”.
Vanessa Silva, University for the Creative Arts.
“Tagged was easy to set up. The support we had from you was great and has meant we can provide another sport for people to try. All the help with the promotion and recruitment really made a difference. Having student ambassadors run it has been a beneficial experience for them and with the training they received meant they have needed very little guidance in making the club a success. I am really glad we have been a part of the project, it has been well received by students and will be great to see it continue to grow”.
Holly Furniss, Reading University.
