    Participating in rugby comes in a variety of forms.

    1. Play: Join a local club. Drop by the ARC for a list of recommended London teams.

    2. Coach: Take a course and spread the love. Coaching comes with a multitude of benefits: earn money, develop communication and leadership skills, inspire young players, and even improve your own technical game.

    3. Manage: Ever consider a career in rugby? There are a whole host of roles—both voluntary and professional—available in sport management. Take the time to combine the skills and knowledge you’ve picked up at LSE with your passion for your sport.

    4. Activate: Try a new activity through LSESU Active LifeStylE. Get in touch with James (J.Ralph@lse.ac.uk) for more information on recreational opportunities such as the new 5-a-side Football league.

    5. Officiate: Ever consider what it’s like to be in charge of a match? Becoming a referee opens up a whole new view of any sport.

    6. Give: Many professional clubs run extensive charitable programmes dedicated to using rugby to promoting social advancement. Spread the benefits of the game you love with the Saracens Sport Foundation, get on board with Rugby for Heroes, or volunteer for one of the RFU’s charities. The chances to give back are endless.

    7. Exercise: Stay fit with the RFU’s O2 Touch Initiative. Chat with James (J.Ralph@lse.ac.uk) about creating a mixed team to play in an O2 Touch league or come along to our O2 Touch Taster session on Wednesday 12th November.

    8. Represent: Become a Young Rugby Ambassador. If you’re age 20 or under, you can apply to be a part of the RFU’s programme dedicated to developing role models.

    9. Think: There’s a lot more to rugby—or any sport—than the physical side. Explore the intellectual side of the game through such dimensions as sport psychology workshops, social policy movements, or sport journalism. Email Erin (E.Walters@lse.ac.uk) for more information on these opportunities.

    10. Work: In case you haven’t heard, there’s a World Cup coming up soon. The window for volunteer applications has now closed, but the RFU is recruiting for a variety of tournament jobs across 2014 and 2015. Register your interest and be a part of the legacy.

    And options don’t stop there. Email Erin (E.Walters@lse.ac.uk) or come into the ARC to have a chat about more opportunities!
