We have received some excellent feedback over the last couple of years from schools who have been involved with the Dons community team. Here is a small selection of the feedback:
Waverley Primary School: Excellent sessions, delivered promptly, and the children enjoyed the TAG rugby with Martin. 26 children were involved, and despite the cold weather, everyone kept active and engaged throughout. Well done!
Stone Hill Primary School: The best sports partnership we have been involved with. We have been very impressed with the professionalism, organisation and coaching that has been provided to our children. However, and above all, we are delighted with the opportunities that have been given to our pupils and the smiles on our children's faces when the coaches came into school. The coaches were superb and developed good relationships with our pupils. The match at the Keepmoat was one of the best experiences we have had in our school.
Hatfield Woodhouse Primary School: The coaching programme has been delivered to the whole of key stage 2. The children have enjoyed the coaching and have been fully engaged at all times.The coaching programme was concluded with a year 3/4 tournament, which we won! To receive medals and a trophy made it an extra special, memorable experience.
West Road Primary School: This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn new skills, get fit and have fun. All of the children enjoyed the sessions and a few are developing a keen interest in rugby league. We enjoyed assisting the coaching and feel that we have learnt how to teach and develop TAG rugby. Thank-you for this opportunity!
De Warenne Academy: This is the first time the students have had Rugby League taught to them and they all found it both entertaining and worthwhile. We are pleased with the level of coaching and the commitment of Adam. The relationship he developed with every student was encouraging and we would have no hesitation in welcoming the coaches back to the school.
Balby Carr Community Sports College: The link between Balby Carr and Doncaster RLFC has been a successful one. The Dons have been fantastic in offering pupils in years 7 and 8 the opportunity to train and play rugby league as an extra curricular club. Through this opportunity, pupils have played in rugby league competitions. The coaching has been related to the age group and pupils have enjoyed the expert coaching guided to them. Some of the pupils from this experience have enhanced their learning further and have joined the local amateur rugby league club. They have also helped referee certain games after school against other local schools.
