- The primary aim of the U16 Programme is to provide an environment where player centered development is the key driver, fixtures are not for ‘winning at all cost’.
- The county programme is aimed at being a step above club/school rugby in terms of the development opportunities we provide and the level of competition that the players will get.
- The Core Values of the game are to be at the forefront of all we do.
- At all times the programme will align with the Aims and Objectives of the RFU Player Development Pathway and the Age Grade Player Review.
- To liaise effectively with our Partners i.e. Member Clubs, Bath Rugby Academy Player Development Group (PDG), Schools, CB Referees Society, Sports Therapists and Assessors.
- To provide an opportunity for U16 Age Grade Players to play representative Rugby Union in addition to their Club and School Rugby.
- To help Clubs with Player retention
- To make those taking part better Players, Leaders and People.
- To assist Bath Academy/PDG with their preparations for the Wellington Festival.
- To provide a pathway for the U17, U18, U20s to hopefully play Senior County rugby.
