Year 5  02 Summer Touch - Sign Up Meeting  - Wednesday 4th May -  Eastleigh RFC  - 1900-2015


We are now into our 5th year of running 02 Summer Touch that has been supported in Hampshire by the Sport England Sportivate scheme. 


This programme has been a huge success across the county with the majority of our clubs now running summer touch programs that fit their needs.


There have been some great success stories and I know that all clubs have benefited from some or all of the below:



  • Improved connection between Senior, Youth , and Women’s section
  • Recruited new players / Retained players
  • Engaged a different club member that does not want to play the contact version of the game
  • Engaged new volunteers
  • Built connections with local educational establishments
  • Received funding through Sportivate
  • Bar takings
  • Developing a year round touch rugby offer
  • Huge Enjoyment

Hampshire RFU recognise the benefits of this program to our clubs and have agreed to support the program by purchasing the equipment for our clubs to run their summer touch. (Big Thank You to Hampshire RFU).


This investment has released the need apply for  Sportivate funding which also frees up the administration burden. 



A sign up  evening will be held on  Wednesday 4th May at Eastleigh RFC 1900-2015.  


The aim of the evening is to sign up those clubs that wish to take part in the summer touch program, clarify dates times and length of program, prioritise  CRC support with our clubs,  share what works and pitfalls.  Issue equipment (Each club that turns up will receive Balls, Bibs & Cones)!



So that we can make appropriate arrangements for refreshments at the evening could I ask that all clubs register their  interest to me
