Rugbytots is a coaching programme that offers dynamic play sessions for young children based on the principles of rugby. Now one of the largest pre-school play programmes in the world, Rugbytots offers weekly sessions for children aged two to seven.
All Rugbytots coaches foster a classroom atmosphere that is exciting and enjoyable, rather than demanding. In fact, Rugbytot’s motto is “make it more fun!” Using imaginative play over traditional technique training, Rugbytots classes teach kids how to catch, pass kick and run with the ball.
Rugbytots classes are catered to the age of your child. Toddlers aged two to three and a half enjoy 30-minute sessions with full parent participation. Rugbytots classes for three and a half to five-year-olds introduce children to rugby and basic techniques while classes for five to seven-year-olds introduce the basic rules of rugby, helping children to build confidence.
In addition to a packed programme of classes, Rugbytots also delivers parties to celebrate special events. Rugbytots parties are different from classes as they focus less on rugby technique and more on imaginative play. With energetic group party games led by trained coaches, Rugbytots helps you celebrate all kinds of special occasions.
Rugbytots was launched in 2006 in Reigate, Surrey by company founder Max Webb. With 268 franchises in operation in 18 countries across seven continents, Rugbytots is a global phenomenon. More than 100 of Rugbytots’ franchisees operate in the UK and the company is actively looking to expand its UK customer base.
Rugbytots has grown exponentially since it started franchising in 2008. The fastest-growing franchise business in the children’s sports coaching sector, Rugbytots delivers more than 4,000 classes per week and welcomes an average of 30 new franchisees to its operation every month. And demand for Rugbytots classes continues to rise.

Most Rugbytots franchisees choose to start their franchise in a new area. However, due to a large number of Rugbytots franchises already in operation, resales do come up.
There are benefits to choosing a resale franchise, including:
Resales have an existing customer base. Franchise resales have a programme of classes with paying students enrolled already in operation. Not only will you receive income from your investment immediately, but you will also have a foundational customer base of parents, schools and nurseries to build on. All existing franchises have an excellent reputation, thanks to Rugbytots high customer service standards.
Resales have venues. It can be challenging for new franchisees to find suitable venues for their classes. Resale franchises already have venues in place.
Resales have quality coaches and equipment. Rugbytots guarantees all of its coaches are trained to a rigorous standard. An existing franchise will already have a team of highly-trained and friendly staff in place. Resales also come with all the necessary equipment so start-up costs are minimal.
Resales come with training and support. Franchisees who purchase a resale receive the same training as franchisees purchasing a new area. Taking on an existing business comes with its own unique challenges and Rugbytots Directors will guide you through the transfer process and offer unlimited support as you grow your business at no additional cost.
