The Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens welcomes families and children and we’ve got plenty of activities taking place at schools and fairs in the lead up to the tournament

Building on the success of the Official Schools Partner Programme, our team will once again be visiting schools and community groups around Dubai offering fun and informative activities and resources to get kids excited about Sevens

Bringing the rugby to your school will foster determination in young people, helping to inspire a new generation to play rugby and make the most of their sporting and teamwork skills

Schools resources include:

  • Inflatable passing challenge – an interactive game for children of all ages and abilities to hone their rugby skills and teamwork. Young people get experience of working in a group,  combining learning with having fun.
  • Sabaa, the tournament mascot will interact with younger members of our audience to build excitement for the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens.
  • School competition activity sheets will entertain and educate kids about rugby. Designed for two specific age groups (7-11 & 12-18), with goody bag giveaways including tickets for competition winners.
