|Register to host an Inner Warrior event in January 2019|
next wave of Inner Warrior Camps will run from 12th – 27th January. The
campaign has been hugely successful in getting more women involved in
rugby, many of them never having had a chance to pick up a rugby ball
before. This video
from Alban Barnes, Head of Girls Rugby at Fullerians RFC, details how
they have maximised the impact of Warrior Camps for the benefit of their
club. The club’s first Warrior Camp in January 2017 saw 28 women take
part, and since then numbers have continued to grow.|
If you have any questions about Inner Warrior or Warrior Camps, please email InnerWarrior@RFU.com, and make sure your club has signed up to host a Warrior Camp, here.
|XRugby7s: an opportunity for clubs to grow memberships|
is a format that has been developed by the RFU and World Rugby to
assist with the recruitment and retention of players. Played over half a
pitch, XRugby7s allows informal, social, mid-week games to be
facilitated, and can be the answer to identifying a new player pool to
support club membership.|
Clubs are encouraged to identify two or
three players to champion XRugby7s and facilitate regular sessions to
target a specific group at the club. This will provide players with the
opportunity to play contact rugby, but with the flexibility to drop in
and out, and self-manage game time. Regular groups are then more likely
to fill in for teams at the weekend if familiar with the club.
For more information, please visit the XRugby7s website, or email DomTripp@RFU.com.
