Pelham Rugby donates balls and curriculum to Hutch and Colonial schools

James Thompson, Hutchinson PE teacher, receives ball from Matthew Persanis, president of Pelham Youth Rugby and NYS Rugby Middle School Coordinator.

Pelham Youth Rugby donated five balls to the physical education programs at Hutchinson and Colonial schools to help with the incorporation of rugby into the PE curriculum.

Rugby is already being taught at Pelham Middle School. After Pelham Rugby did demonstrations in the gym classes at the two elementary schools, it is now being incorporated into the curriculum at the schools.
