 HEPT 2018


Following on from the Age Grade review which the RFU have implemented we cannot continue to operate HEPT under the same procedure as we have done in the past for U13s and U14s.


To continue to run the HEPT for Hampshire U13s – U14s (U15s and U16s are not affected) we now cannot run trials and be selective for U13s and U14s in this programme.


From January 2018 we therefore invite clubs and schools to send to us U13s and U14s players (BOYS and GIRLS) who would like to attend our HEPT training sessions.


To join please complete and return this form so we can allocate you a HEPT centre.




Current HEPT players do not need to reapply.
