Year’s first Grassroots Rugby Day to touch down

The first Grassroots Rugby Day of 2015 will be held at the ISPP BKK Field on Street 380 from 8.30am to 4.30pm on Sunday, and is organised by Kampuchea Balopp in conjunction with its partners ISPP, PSE and Lycee Francaise Rene Descartes

Kampuchea Balopp (KB) is the country’s leading grassroots rugby promoter, which has youth development through this exciting contact sport as their prime motive.

“Children from all the 18 NGOs KB are working with have been invited to attend as well as kids who would like to get involved with rugby.

“The day gives the youth the opportunity to make new friends and forge bonds with children of different ages and backgrounds,’’ KB’s communications manager Steve Noble said.

“In order to use rugby as a tool of education, these days are arranged to promote the game and social inclusion along with core values and equality’’ he said.

In the morning session, children under 9 and 11 will get involved with the game in a dynamic but fun-filled environment.

In the afternoon, boys and girls under 15 and 18 will play social rugby while learning some game skills.

This is the first of a series of events KB has planned and these grassroots days are organised every two months.
