"I am a huge advocate of Vicky's didi Rugby programme. Having been involved with rugby at all levels my whole life I totally believe in the values that it instils in little ones to play fair, share with friends, and show respect for each other as well as the obvious health and fitness benefits that are vital for youngsters. Getting them into a programme such as didi Rugby at an early age gives them the perfect start to lifelong participation in sport and exercise, whilst having fun!
I am excited to be an ambassador for didi rugby and look forward to watching didi Rugby grow on a national and international basis"
Geordan Murphy - Leicester Tigers Coach ex Irish International 74 caps, Dad of 6 month old boy
"As an ambassador I wanted to endorse didi rugby as it improves activity levels and skills of youngsters whilst also developing self-confidence using rugby as a tool do this. Perfect!
Vicky comes from her own international playing career, her career in teaching and her own experience as a mum... So she has combined all this valuable experience together to put together a multi skills based activity programme based on the theme of rugby.
Ultimately didi rugby is about little ones staying active and having fun whilst improving their coordination, balance, agility, and hand eye coordination... What I really like about Vicky's programme is it really instils the core values of rugby which are so important in sport and life! Team work, respect, self-belief, confidence and even as basic as social skills in little ones who take part in the programme, learning to share, learning to lose and the list goes on!
I would certainly recommend this program and am looking forward to seeing more of didi rugby in the future."

"I am very proud to support didi Rugby. I played the sport at all levels for 25 years, and I think the benefits of participating in rugby are huge. Alongside the physical activity, great friendships can be made, life values such as respect, discipline and teamwork can be learnt, and, above all, there is a huge amount of fun to be had. Getting kids involved as early as possible not only benefits them, but it benefits the game. Some of the next generation of England players are probably lacing their boots up for the first time through Didi Rugby."
Maggie Alphonsi MBE - World Cup Winner and Sports commentator
" Rugby changed my life and gave me the skills to succeed. I support programmes like didi Rugby because they teach children crucial skills at a young age that will support their physical development, build character and instil values that will benefit them throughout life"
Matt Elliot - retired footballer Leicester City Football club and Scotland international with 18 caps for his country.
"I am really pleased to be an ambassador of didi Rugby. When I first heard about the programme I thought it was a fantastic concept and now having seen it in practice I am glad to be involved.
I firmly believe that anything that encourages children to be active in any sport, whilst learning through play and gaining confidence is a good thing. Didi rugby is certainly that! Vicky has created a programme that encourages little ones to enjoy sport and physical activity whilst learning new skills and developing concepts like fair play and teamwork."
