12 Feb MRP Returns to Vikings Rugby in 2020
The Modified Rugby Program (MRP) will return to Vikings Rugby in 2020! The MRP is a world first, touch-only modified version of Rugby for children with learning and perceptual difficulties. Each participant is paired with a PlayerMentor who guides them through training drills and supports them during game play, taking them from the sideline on to the field to enjoy the game of Rugby. Ben Pratt, our superstar Head Coach of the Vikings MRP Team who was recognised as our Player Clubmen of the Year in 2020 as well as Volunteer of the Year with Brumbies Rugby, will be returning to lead the program once more with a PlayerMentor team consisting of current Vikings players. In 2020, the MRP team will train on Tuesday nights from 4:30pm-5:30pm and play on Saturdays from 9:00am-10:00am. Both trainings and games will be held at Viking Park (4 Amsinck Street, Wanniassa ACT).
