About This Programme
Northamptonshire Sport, in partnership with England Rugby and the Spirit of 2012 Trust, have recently launched a new and exciting project that aims to take the sport of Rugby Union into new communities across Northamptonshire.
Engage. Try. Convert aims to involve previously disengaged communities across Northamptonshire in Rugby Union. Building upon the inspiration of the 2015 Rugby World Cup and the inclusion of Rugby in the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games, the project will provide participants aged 16-24 from the Eastern European community with a platform to enjoy the many benefits of Rugby Union.

Engage. Try. Convert forms part of a nationwide project, co-ordinated by England Rugby and funded by the Spirit of 2012 Trust, called Spirit of Rugby. The Spirit of Rugby project will focus on 15 communities across the country; working in 5 communities in Rugby World Cup host cities, 5 in communities hosting Rugby World Cup training bases and 5 communities that are remote from the direct impact of the Rugby World Cup.
