HAMPSHIRE RUGBY

PRINCIPAL SPONSORS

 


Across England more than 100,000 volunteers dedicate their time, energy and efforts to driving the game forward. From the helpers in the kitchen to the club secretary, a range of volunteers play a vital role in the development and delivery of rugby across the nation. They are vital pillars of the game and an essential bedrock for any club’s success and survival.

 

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, Performance Partner of the RFU, is proud to support volunteering at all levels of English rugby. Which is why, in a hugely important year for the game, it wants to give back to this unsung community by offering volunteers the opportunity to journey to Japan this Autumn and be part of an exciting knowledge exchange programme with local Japanese rugby clubs.

 

Launching this week, Journey to Japan offers volunteers the chance to head east, experience a culture like no other and see how a Japanese rugby club functions. Whilst in Japan, the volunteers will have an opportunity to meet with their counterparts from a local club – to share opinions and exchange views on the game.

 

To win a place on this amazing trip, Mitsubishi Motors would like to hear from you on how this enriching experience would help you help grow the game back in England. To be eligible to enter, volunteers must be aged 18 and over and hold an unpaid voluntary role at an RFU Recognised Rugby Club, RFU Constituent Body or Society. Entries should be submitted via www.mitsubishi-motors.co.uk/journeytojapan before 23.59 BST on the 31st August 2019.

 

Entrants will be required to answer three questions about their current role and how this opportunity will help realise the shared ambitions to keep people playing or involved in the game. A select group of finalists will be invited to pitch their ideas to England Rugby and Mitsubishi Motors UK on 17th September, before the winners are announced. Full terms and conditions apply.

 

Good luck

Messge from Ivan Torpey (RDO)

 

Due to the World Cup international schedule the Coaching and Referee Award courses have been structured to avoid the key international games.  This has required the courses to be front loaded at the start of the season with further courses organised to be held at the end of October early November.

 

With the first courses organised to start at the end of August  would you please be good enough to circulate these dates within your club.  Currently the numbers are looking low and unless a minimum of 12 candidates sign up the course will not take place.   

 

Whilst in touch I have included forth coming CPD courses and a England Rugby Training Courses PDF document that provides course descriptors.
