The third meeting of the European project Smart Rugby, under the ERASMUS + SPORT programme, organized by ACS Rugby Cluj Junior (Romania) took place on may 7 in Iclod Arena (Cluj, Romania). Members of the Galician Rugby Federation (FGR, Spain) as project coordinator, Associaçao de Rugby do Norte (ARN Portugal), ACS Rugby Cluj Junior (Cluj-Napoca, Romania), RFC Sumi XV (Cortegada, Spain) and Muralla RC (Lugo, Spain), are working together to develop this project.
The main objective of this project is the preparation, development and implementation of educational and training tools through rugby as a grassroots sport for the personal, social and professional development of children under 12 years of age.
We are currently in the implementation testing phase of the educational tool. Our main objective during this phase is to make the project reach as many stakeholders as possible so they can test the learning units of this tool and give us feedback for improvement towards a final version. This third face-to-face meeting served to continue and review the implementation of the educational tool, as well as provide Spanish and Portuguese members a first hand view of grassroots rugby in Romania by attending a Rugby tournament to promote the project.
