Frequently Asked Questions


Is my child too young for rugby?
The sessions have a rugby theme to reflect the rugby-mad area in which we operate. There is no contact and we are more concerned about the development of your child’s basic core skills to help you and them get the most out of them being active. We want them to have fun and get an appetite for sport!

Can I watch the sessions?
We encourage parents to participate in the Little Runners’ sessions at least at the outset. The sessions will develop your child’s confidence and certainly parental involvement in the Little Passers’ sessions should be reduced.
We’d encourage parents to follow through the spirit of the sessions at home and we’d hope that you would see the added value that can be gained from participation in Run and Pass for Kids.

How many children are in each session?
There will be a minimum of 5 to make the sessions viable but no more than 12 in any session. This means that your child will get the best from each session.

Trainers or boots?
Trainers or appropriate footwear for activity (for your child’s age) should be worn. Weather permitting sessions will be outdoor but there are indoor facilities available if required.

Other kit to be worn?
Branded Run and Pass polo shirts are supplied to each child after they have attended 2 sessions and we ask that your boys and girls wear them to help them feel part of being part of a group. Otherwise suitable clothing for the weather should be worn. Joggers, or similar such bottoms, or shorts should be worn; jeans should not be worn as the clothing should be loose-fitting to allow full movement.

How do we pay?
There is a fee of £6 per session which can be paid on the day.

What if my child does not like it?
We are confident that your child will enjoy the sessions and we will make extra special efforts to ensure that they do so if there are signs that they do not, or you have any concerns. We’d encourage you to discuss any concerns after the sessions. We’d encourage a degree of persistence but at the end of the day your child must enjoy coming.

What if my child is ill and has to miss sessions?
We would not want any child to do any form of physical activity when ill and we certainly would not want any child who may be infectious to attend.

Who are the coaches?
The Head Coach is Stephen Ball, an experienced and appropriately qualified coach with a First Aid qualification. Any assistant coaches will be similarly and suitably qualified and will also have undergone enhanced CRB checks.

What insurance is held?
Appropriate liability insurance through 2 major companies is held by Run and Pass Ltd and the hosting venue has appropriate liability insurance cover in place.
