RCVB Rugby School goes to Scotland ! : Villejuif Rugby exploring the Scottish Rugby
In 2014, after a warm welcome from our friends from Brive, we go abroad as every 2 years . This year we wish to go to our Scottish friends , destination Edinburgh .
The scheduled program during this week is Rugny training , meetings with various clubs , tours, and a discovery of the local culture, recreation, extra- rugby ( curling, hold back , or shinty ) sports activities, etc. .
For budgetary reasons , and although this course is supported by the city of Villejuif and the Val de Marne, we can not take them with us all educators / trainers who are dedicated volunteers throughout the year with patience and know how to convey the passion and values of rugby to our children.
Indeed the participation requested to the families is already very high for our local population, and leave behind some of our volunteers who do not count their time to serve our small bursts is a true heart break…
12 of them may be left behind in the current state of our budget.
The course is currently funded for 67 children and 13 teachers / coaches via:
– A participation fee from the families of 440 euros per child
– A grant from the city of Villejuif : about 5500 euros
– A grant from the General Council of Val de Marne : about 2500 euros
It therefore lacks today funding for 12 teachers / coaches to ensure a secure and good quality supervision.

The RCVB / U.S. Villejuif Rugby is a Rugby club open to the world driven by solidarity and citizenship.
Each year the club organizes a one-week course, mixing Rugby and Culture, for our young players to discover other horizons. This is often for our children the only opportunity to get out of their neighborhood and be confronted with other cultures …
Every two years, the course takes place abroad, the other years in areas where the French rugby has an important role:
2012: Zagreb, Croatia
2013: Brive la Gaillarde
2014: Edinburgh, Scotland => This year
The main objectives of this course are:
– Strengthen intergenerational relationships within the club
– Allow children from poor neighborhoods to discover other horizons and other crops
– Develop qualities of our youth rugby
