Hampshire Rugby Football Union now runs the Hampshire Extended Player Training (HEPT), under the auspices of Tim Allen, Club Hampshire's Rugby Director.






Following on from the Hampshire Clubs Player Retention Cluster group meetings it is clear that there is confusion within our Hampshire Clubs about HEPT (Hampshire Extended Player Training), its purpose and what it achieves for the players and coaches.
Due to the Hampshire Clubs' concerns we are suspending HEPT until after October half term whilst we conduct a full review of the whole process surrounding HEPT.
We offer our apologies to the Players, Parents and Coaches for any disappointment caused.
Further communication will be send out in due course.
Yours in rugby
Tim Allen                              Dr. E. Neville
Director of Rugby                 Management Board Chairman
