Somerset Player Dev Pathway

2018-19 RFU approved age grade playing calendar

What is the purpose of the Age Grade Rugby Playing Calendar?

  • To provide a consistent national framework with flexibility to localise competitions and representative activity schedules.
  • To reduce over and under playing by providing a balanced playing programme.
  • To rationalise local competitions, ensuring fewer players play intense competitive matches every week in which the result is the sole outcome.
  • To promote and support dialogue between clubs, schools/colleges, academies and parents/guardians that prioritises the players.
  • It is not a “priority” but a “Player Centered” calendar
