A few words from Mike

“I am a Dad of two girls and have come into Didi Rugby as a parent wishing to pursue an environment with a strong sporting context that cultivates fun and vibrancy, while at the same time developing skills in communication, listening, agility, balance, and coordination. Rugby is a perfect sporting context for youngsters to have fun, and let off some steam, while subtly building social skills and increasing confidence!

My background in sport comes from track running, surf lifesaving, tennis, and soccer with 400m sprinting being my dominant athletic pursuit whilst at University. As a Rugby player my experience comes from school in Northamptonshire, U.K, where I held the position of Wing. ”
