Our fun, structured play sessions take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team.

Our motto is simple; “make it more fun”. We do this by delivering our specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement. This creates an atmosphere in the class that is totally unique and engaging for parents and children alike.

Since 2006, we have grown beyond anything we could have imagined. Today, over 80,000 children in 24 countries on seven continents are now part of the Rugbytots family. Here in the UK, over 1000 coaches deliver more than 5,000 classes per week and the appetite for our classes continues to rise.



We have been operating Rugbytots franchises for over 16 years and support over 350 franchisees around the globe. We provide practical help with everything from marketing and promotion to HR and managing bookings.

But we’re not simply a remote resource, we love to get together with our franchisees – and love our franchsiees to meet one another. It’s all part of the friendly, family-style approach we take to business.

As a new member of the Rugbytots franchisee family, we will welcome you in with a proven programme of pre-launch business and coaching training to ensure you can hit the ground running.

You will receive 16 hours of desk-based training, delivered in eight 2-hour sessions by Zoom or, if you prefer, in person at Head Office. We cover everything from creating your launch plan and using our internal systems, through financial and venue mangagement, to promoting your classes and recruiting coaches.

You will get 2 structured training days with a master trainer and head coach or existing franchise ownew. This is followed by 4 weeks of buddy training with a franchisee near to your area, with 3, 6 and 12-month follow-up visits.

We provide you with a comprehensive range of materials personalised with your franchise contact details.

Most items are available with up to ten different image choices, so you can pick the one that best reflects your situation and your target audience.

We’ve a a fantastic body of ready-to-go posts, images, video and other great content available for you to use.

We know finding the time to post regularly can be challenging, so a dedicated team at Head Office will post varied content across your Facebook and Instagram pages four times a week.

What will I do as a Franchisee

In the UK and across the world, the demand for Rugbytots classes keeps rising, which means that the opportunity for new and existing Rugbytots franchisees has never been better!

Our franchisees come from many previous walks of life. While we love that each one is different, we also value their common qualities, including being:

Self motivated
Well organised
Hard working

We have three different franchise packages. As well as our standard full-time franchises, part-time franchises are offered in certain locations – and finance is available for people who do not have the total amount to invest.

A full time Franchise would suit someone who was looking to run multiple venues including schools and nurseries. The typical week for a full time franchisee would be varied and encompass, coaching, management, marketing and recruitment.

The smaller areas we operate can be worked alongside another commitment and would come with less staff management and recruitment as its likely the franchisee would be an owner/operator who coaches the majority of classes themselves.
