England Deaf Rugby training day

When: 26 March 2017

Deaf Awareness Rugby Day is on Sunday 26 March. The event is held at Newton Abbot rugby club ground in Rackerhayes, Newton Road, Kingsteignton.

The public event is run by England Deaf Rugby and the RFU. It will include an open training session run by coaches and players and match featuring female Deaf rugby players.

From 10am, there will be an Introduction to Deaf Rugby and a Deaf Awareness session in the clubhouse.

An open training session for Deaf players from across the South West is from 10.30am to 11.30am, run by coaches and players, followed by a lunch for guests.

A match between Devon Ladies and England Deaf Ladies will kick off at 1pm.

Ben Iremonger, our Communication Support Worker (CSW), and a former rugby player for Exeter youth rugby team, The Colts, said he hopes staff and students from the Academy will travel to the event to show their support.

Exeter Deaf Academy has strong links to rugby including our Deaf students being the first to take part in a course, which helped them to learn to teach rugby to younger players.

Wayne Reed held the IRB Rugby Ready course for students from School and College, devised by the International Rugby Board.

Exeter Deaf Academy is also proud to have talented rugby players including College Student William, who plays for his home rugby team in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, Wales, alongside his hearing peers.
