England Rugby and Hampshire RFU - 02 Summer Touch Rugby 2017
As the 2016/17 season comes to a close we know that many of you will be looking forward to a well-earned rest - but we also know that a good number of you (like us!) will also be looking forward to your Summer Touch Rugby fix!
Over the past 5 years we have some really strong evidence from clubs to suggest that running a well organised Summer Touch Rugby programme has helped with – whole club cohesion, youth/colts/senior transition, player recruitment, sponsor and community engagement, fundraising and increased bar revenue amongst other things.
With huge thanks to Hampshire RFU for providing funds, we are able to offer clubs running Summer Touch Rugby some equipment to help run their programmes – this year it will be a top up of balls and reversible bibs.
In the past we have required full registers and reports to access this funding, but this year all we ask is for you to let me know the following :-
- Touch Rugby Contact
- email and mobile no for contact
- Start day and date
- Time (start & Finish)
- Finish Date
- Would you like CRC support or not?
On completion of the programme we would also like to know:
·Average weekly attendance and highest weekly attendance
·A short outcome or anecdote of any positives that took place e.g. recruitment, income, etc. (only a few bullet points)
As in previous years we will not be holding a central meeting to share ideas across clubs, but the summer touch program is a key area of work with our clubs and educational establishments and as a Development Team it is an ideal opportunity to support your programme and also make connections with other club members.
Could I ask that you let me know by indicating in the above spreadsheet if you would like CRC support . If YES, either your club CRC or I will revert back and discuss what training needs or hands on support that you might like.
If you could please complete the above information and send it to me
No later than Wednesday 26th April.
We will arrange to deliver your kit ahead of your first planned session (but not before Monday 1st May).
I look forward to hearing back from you!
