U17s Development Day – 28th Jan 18

The management and coaching staff have great pleasure in announcing a development day for the current squad players AND those who are no longer involved in Academy rugby.

The purpose of this day is aimed at extending the development of our current squad players, alongside those were considered ‘not quite ready’ for the level required at County rugby.

We are very focused on player development who may be considered to be the better players within a Club Team and those who are keen to develop their skills to a representative level. We have therefore introduced a Players Development Day to be held at Bryanston School on Sunday 28th January for all Squad Players. The session will be between 9.30am – 3.30pm with a break for lunch at approximately 12.30pm.

Structure of the Day

Players will need to bring a small notebook and pen (for sessions with Physio and points from coaches).
Timings:
9.30 am Arrival and registration
9.45 am Squad meeting and short feedback activity.

PLEASE ENSURE ALL PLAYERS BRING A SUITABLE LUNCH, PLENTY OF FLUIDS AND SNACKS FOR THE DAY. A CHANGE OF CLOTHES IS ALSO RECOMMENDED, PARTICULARLY IF IT IS RAINING. WE WILL HAVE A PHYSIO THERE FOR THE DAY AND SHOWERS/CHANGING ROOMS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE. (Parents and Coaches are also welcome to attend this stunning venue)

Our aim is to have a highly productive, but fun rugby event whilst taking another look at those players who originally trialled, alongside our selected squad, to see how they have worked on the feedback given from the assessors in previous trails.

COACHES, SCHOOL MASTERS, PARENTS –

WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY PLAYER ON THE DAY WITHOUT PRIOR CONFIRMATION OF INTENDED ATTENDANCE BY EMAIL TO richardrees1988@gmail.com OR IF WE DO NOT HAVE THE COMPLETED FORMS THAT WERE HANDED IN AT PREVIOUS TRIALS.

We experienced a very difficult situation at previous trials (in extreme weather conditions) when 22 players arrived un announced and caused huge delays at registration. We do not have the time to deal with this again.

We look forward to seeing you all on the day!

Best regards,
