As part of the club’s ongoing commitment to rugby in Leicester, we have formed the Leicester Tigers Swifts. The Swifts is a new team for young players from the BAME (Black Asian & Minority Ethnic People community) in Leicester, with the aim to not only develop their rugby skills, but also allow them to demonstrate and understand the core values of rugby: teamwork, enjoyment, discipline, sportsmanship and respect.
Tigers Swifts forms part of the Clubs wider initiative to engage individuals and groups from outside the rugby community to help increase participation for those Communities who are otherwise underserved by sportIng opportunities and it’s associated benefits.
The Swifts programme is aimed at boys & girls within primary years 5 & 6 as well as years 7 & 8 in secondary education.
Sessions are free of charge and will resume again soon at venues within the city boundaries.
