Welcome to Mini’s Academy

“A positive environment for everyone to enjoy rugby”

Autumn 2015 saw the biggest and the best Rugby World Cup, in history, play out against a backdrop of intense media interest.

A global success, it attracted tens of millions of viewers across the world, with stadiums selling out in host cities across England & Wales.

As part of the ongoing commitment to the RWC2015 legacy and to the children of Exeter, one of the key host cities, schools across the city are now being invited to take part, from January 2016, in Mini’s Academy which will focus on the very values on which the legacy was founded.

Respect the Laws  |  Work Hard  |  Play Fair  |  Have Fun  |  Help Our Team Mates


Enter Coach Mini; the hugely loveable character from Let’s Play Rugby, whose fun, exciting approach to the game is capturing the hearts and minds of players across the globe.
