Supporting others in their skill and personality development through rugby sevens
We identified that the sport of rugby sevens, combined with development-focused coaching, offers valuable opportunities for young people to play a fast growing, fascinating game and helps to improve fitness levels, consequently preventing long-term diseases such as obesity and overweight. Equally important, this combination also helps to gain vital character-building skills, which are essential in achieving better outcomes in education, health and economic productivity.
7 Bamboos Rugby is a social, creative and innovative venture, based on four areas: A development team, coaching programmes for schools and colleges, tailor-made events and a range of distinctive merchandise.
The unique selling point of 7 Bamboos Rugby is the creation of a venture that, in this way, simply does not yet exists: A carefully considered development-cycle based on a creative, well-designed brand, acting as a social enterprise.
Our idea takes a completely new approach toward young peoplesâ€™ development. Most rugby sevens teams limit their offer to assembling experienced rugby players for tournaments only, without considering any development aspects. Instead of concentrating on creating a team with the sole emphasis on winning tournaments, our approach puts its focus on social change and an improved quality of life for young people.
