We believe grass roots rugby is the beating heart of the game and we want to empower everyone involved, by making the expertise, skills and resources they need to flourish, accessible to all.
As former players, we've lived and breathed the game from playing at school through to the National Leagues. In that time we have worked with a lot of good people, who have shaped both our views of the game and also how it can be supported better.
We started Zion Sport with a view to doing three things:
- Helping players and coaches be their very best and stay in the game for as long as possible
- Impressing on clubs the need for high quality, focused support for at all levels
- Creating successful and sustainable rugby communities
