Primary Tug of War Programme

Primary Schools

The Irish Tug of War Association and Cork Sports Partnership have teamed up to develop a Primary School Tug of War Programme. The programme will run across a limited number of Cork primary schools throughout the school year.

The aim of the programme is to introduce 3rd & 4th class primary school children (Boys, Girls & Mixed) to the Sport of Tug of War in a supportive environment. In return for full commitment to the programme, each school will receive the following:

  • Coaching Session
  • Tug of War rope
  • Coaching Resource Pack
  • Access to Cork Schools Blitz (Covid permitting)

How much does the programme cost?

€50. This programme is valued at over €300 per school and is heavily subsidised by the Irish Tug of War Association and Cork Sports Partnership. 

Maximum Capacity per School:

30 per class session with a maximum of 2 class sessions (60 children) per school for this phase of the programme.
