CALL for Resource Review Team Members – Rookie Rugby

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

PHE Canada’s Resource Review and Endorsement Program is a comprehensive process that involves an expert review of resources to provide recommendations and feedback to the resource developers on how the program can be enhanced or revised to make it more pedagogically sound, user-friendly, comprehensive, and relevant. 

PHE Canada seeks the advice of experts in the physical and health education field to assist with a review of Rookie Rugby. Rugby Canada has prepared a curriculum specifically for school programs to make it easy for teachers to introduce rugby to their students. The curriculum is based on the principles of Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model and physical literacy movements. The learning experiences have been divided across the LTAD stages:

  • Six Sessions for Active Start - Males and Females 0-6 years of age
  • Six Sessions for FUNdamentals - Males 6-9 years of age and Females 6-8 years of age
  • Six Sessions for Learn to Train - Males 9-12 years of age and Females 8-12 years of age

  • Maintain their status as a voting member of PHE Canada.
  • Provide a quality review of the resource and complete the review form by November 20, 2017.
