Community Programme 1 of 4


The Richmond Rugby Community Programme, powered by Community Group, was officially launched in July 2017. Our aim is to engage with schools, colleges and to support local community initiatives.

In the relative short space of time the department has operated, our school engagement has grown year on year, we now support and deliver rugby coaching in a large number of local primary and preparatory schools, senior schools and sixth forms and colleges. Last academic year saw the department coach for more than 1,500 hours in schools to over 1,000 children.

All of our partner schools take part in community events at various senior men's and women's fixtures throughout the course of the season. This enables students, parents, siblings and teachers, the opportunity to experience and gain exclusive access to Richmond Rugby fixtures. During the 2023/24 season, more than 200 local boys and girls attended specialist coaching sessions prior to our senior matches.

We also delivered a variety of community projects, including our weekly rugby programme in Her Majesties Youth Offenders Institute Feltham, delivering coaching and mentoring.

During the school holidays, our community team deliver skill camps for mini and youth players, helping them to improve and develop their game, and receive expert coaching from a wide-range of club coaches, first-team players and external professionals. Our camps are open to everyone, not just Richmond members. For camp bookings please visit:

On Sunday's throughout the season, our team of community coaches assist and deliver training for our various mini and youth teams (U5-U18s). All club coaches are suitably qualified and DBS checked.
