Kids First Champions Programme

Old Mutual Wealth ‘Kids First Champions’ is a video series which sees England player and British & Irish Lion, Ugo Monye, travel the country, presenting unique training sessions as a reward for those clubs and schools that are leading the way with ‘Kids First’.

‘Kids First Champion’ clubs are those identified as achieving particular success in:

  • creating a great rugby environment
  • great coaching and upskilling coaches
  • retaining and keeping players in the game.

From September until April, we’ll be releasing a new video each month, featuring Ugo Monye and the latest Champion club. Our March winner is Alton RFC and you can watch their reaction right here:
