London Irish is committed to being an active member of the local and wider rugby community working with schools, amateur clubs and other youth organisations in the Sunbury area and in Berkshire, Hampshire and surrounding counties.
The Club’s Community team aims to promote education, social inclusion, teamwork and active lifestyles through the creation of rugby related programmes. In addition, the team promotes the sport of rugby and the support of London Irish through the provision of professional coaching services and sustainable coach education.
The Club employs professional Level 2 qualified coaches who are responsible for delivering a broad range of coaching to players, amateur coaches and teachers across all age groups starting with children as young as 5.
The team uses Hazelwood to deliver community projects throughout the local and wider community bringing in local children for afterschool clubs as well as hosting school and club visits, and coaching with community and academy staff as well as meeting the first team on-site.
